Of note

Former Danville resident and San Ramon High School graduate, class of 1975 Kelley (Wilson) Hill was chosen to be in the top 20 songwriters in the "American Idol Songwriter" contest. There were more than 25,000 entries.

Hill's song entitled, "One Night" can be still heard at www.americanidol.com/songwriter. Her bio reads: "I'm a stay-at-home mom and I've been writing songs all my life, both for myself and my church, where I'm involved in worship. I released my first CD, "The River," in February 2007. My passion is songwriting and ultimately, that other artists would be interested in recording my songs. I live in California with my husband Lewis and daughters, Hayley, Audrey and Darcie."

Alexandra Curtis, 15, of Danville was second runner-up in the recent Miss California contest that is part of the National American Miss Pageant system.

Curtis also won the Best Actress award; was first runner-up in Most Photogenic, and was named a State Ambassador for outstanding program participation. These achievements at the state finalist level qualified her to travel to Anaheim in November to compete as Miss Danville for National All-American Miss.

Curtis attends Monte Vista High School where she is involved in cheerleading and lacrosse. She also volunteers 200 hours a year as a junior coach for young cheerleaders in the San Ramon Valley Thunderbird Football and Cheer program.

The Danville Lions Club installed its new officers: Tom Jackson is the new president; Rob Comeau, first vice president; Ray Martz, treasurer; and Shannin Morgan, secretary. Jackson has been associated with community activities since 1970 and is excited to be active again serving the community.

Lions International aids vision and hearing impaired throughout the world. The Danville Lions Club recently donated 2,000 pairs of glasses to Lions in Sight. In addition, the Danville club gives high school scholarships, supports student public speaking, provides eye exams and eye glasses for the needy and supports local sports programs.
