CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - An eight-year tradition, the Columbus Day Olive Oil Celebration recently sold out at the Italian Cultural Center in Carmichael.

Fragrant oils baptized bread, lunch was eaten al-fresco, and New World discoverer Christopher Columbus—the first Italian American—was recalled. To please paisano palates, Gold River-based Pasta Queen, Susan Korec, served a feast of hand-made ravioli, linguini, and meat balls. Two authors presented a talk on olive growing in the California Gold Country.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Continuing a three year tradition at the Citrus Heights Community Center, the Capitol Pops Concert Band recently delivered a program part Oktoberfest and part Halloween; the event was aptly heralded as “Boos and Brews.”

Musicians and audience members came in Halloween costumes or German attire. Patrons supped heartily on sausages and sauerkraut, wine and beer. Hosting the event, the 60-piece Pops ensemble performed macabre hits ranging from chilling James Bond scores to the Spiderman theme. German polkas and drinking music augmented seasonal motifs.

Fair Oaks CoHousing Neighbors
Cohousing neighborhoods are composed of privately-owned homes clustered around shared open space and extensive common facilities. The Club House typically includes a dining room, kitchen, workshop space, children’s playroom, guest rooms, and lounge. It is the heart of the neighborhood for a variety of other activities. Cars are parked on the periphery of the site, making the neighborhood more pedestrian-friendly and kid-safe. Future residents are involved in the design and development so that it reflects their needs and priorities, creating a truly custom neighborhood.

Sutter Imaging Offers Free Mammograms to Uninsured Women in Region

Posted: 10/9/2014

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, 10 Sutter Imaging locations in the greater Sacramento region are offering free mammograms to uninsured women during October.

Each of the 10 Sutter Imaging sites that are participating have set aside one Saturday this month to perform the free digital screening mammograms for uninsured women who otherwise may not have access to these potentially life-saving screenings.

“Early detection can lead to a longer, healthier life,” said Barbara White, M.D., Sutter Imaging radiologist who specializes in women’s imaging. “Unfortunately, some women view mammograms as ‘optional,’ especially those without insurance. We want to help create better access for them and put them on a path toward wellness.”

When the free mammogram program discovers abnormal results, it connects the women with community agencies that provide follow-up care.
