Boys beating the summer heat in an old swimming hole in the San Ramon Creek. Potluck socials every Saturday night in front of the Grange on Front Street. Bucolic scenes of historic Danville came to life last Saturday morning as docent Patty Dobbin led a downtown walking tour sponsored by the Museum of the San Ramon Valley.

I am a former resident of Danville (1958-1964 Vista Drive) now residing in Las Vegas. I always wondered about those old buildings, and also knew Russ & Plyn Glenn well, my husband & I were continuous visitors to their restaurant. Oldest daughter went to Green Valley grammar school. A very informative walk thu. Joan Villaire
