Christmas at the museum

Santa Claus will be at the Museum of the San Ramon Valley from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., tomorrow, Dec. 13, and Saturday, Dec. 20, a chance for children to share their Christmas wishes and for mom and dad to take photos. He will be in the gift shop, which is also offering shopping opportunities.

This is the first Christmas to buy the book "Vintage Danville: 150 Years of Memories," sponsored by the Town of Danville in celebration of its sesquicentennial this year. Authors Beverly Lane and Laura Grinstead will be at the museum tomorrow to personally inscribe books and to talk about their experiences in finding and writing about the extensive collection of Danville photos in the book. Books are $35 plus tax.

The gift shop also offers other unique items, including miniature wooden historic Danville buildings by artist Gary Winter.
