Alamo residents: Mark Sept. 12 on your calendars

The Alamo Music and Wine Festival, Alamo Rotary's annual community celebration benefiting school music programs, is being held from 2-11 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 12, at Alamo Plaza.

"We raised more than $12,000 during last year's festival," said sponsor chairman Don Morton. "Much of the money came from very generous sponsors."

The Cruise Tones will again headline the event with dance music from the 50's in the evening. School music groups will perform starting at 2 p.m. The event will have food, games and business booths throughout the festival area, and a play zone set up by the Mt. Diablo Regional YMCA and the Alamo Improvement Association with a rock climbing wall.

Dinner tickets are $18, featuring a selection from Forli's, Faz, Don Jose, Peasant's Courtyard or the Alamo Rotary BBQ Booth, and California wines will be available with commemorative glasses. There will be inexpensive hot dogs and chips for the kids. The drawing has more prizes than ever with tickets for sale at the event.

In the evening, Rotary will present its annual Citizen of the Year Award.
