School is back in session this week, and as students begin the new year, parents in the Byron Union School District (BUSD) are asked to do some studying of their own. There will be a town hall meeting in the school district boardroom on Thursday, Aug. 24, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., to discuss the possibility of a new 2018 school bond. Interested residents and families are invited to attend and participate in the discussion.

Summer may be almost over, but there are still plenty of entertaining events happening in East County. Fishing enthusiasts can grab a pole on Saturday, Aug. 12, and head on down to the Antioch-Oakley pier for Oakley’s annual Kids Fishing Derby. The catch-and-release derby is for children up to age 15, and the bait is free. Registration starts at 8 a.m. 

But if fishing isn’t your thing, the Art, Wine & Jazz Festival is sure to please, and this year, it leaves the Streets of Brentwood and returns to Brentwood City Park on Aug. 26 and 27. Hosted by the Brentwood Art Society, the weekend is filled with great local wines, amazing art and unsurpassed jazz. So mark your calendars, and head downtown for some family fun. 

And the survey says … For those who might have missed the airing the first time around or want to cheer them on again, members of the Cannon family of East County were recent participants on “Family Feud,” and there will be encore airings during the weeks of Aug. 7 and Aug. 14. Check local listings for air dates and times. 

If you take care of a senior with dementia or Alzheimer’s, St. Anne Church in Byron, offers respite for several hours, including lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It’s important for caregivers to get care, too. For information on cost, hours and other details, call Lisa Kimble at 925-548-4591.
