Ducks in training for race day

Sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Fremont, the 21st annual Tri Cities Ducks for Bucks benefit race is the quack of the town. Festivities for the race will be held at the Lake Elizabeth boat ramp on Saturday, April 25 and include food and beverages, a free family carnival with great games and prizes, and the music of Dixie Dominus Jazz Band of Fremont Christian School.

Splash down for the great race and sponsor an athlete in the water. Adopt a rubber duck for $5 or six ducks for $25. Duck adoptions can be made on race day until 12:50 p.m., and proceeds go to local Tri-City schools and charities. Last year, over $14,000 was raised benefiting such organizations as League of Volunteers (LOV), Serra Center, Tri-City Ecology Center, Friends of Heirloom Flowers, Newark Girls Softball League, Guide Dogs for the Blind, and Friends of Children with Special Needs.

Spring celebration honors volunteer and citizen of the year

Please join Citizens for Better Community (CBC) at its 23rd annual Spring Celebration on Saturday, April 25 at Fremont Marriott Silicon Valley Hotel. Dr. Jim Morris, Superintendent of Fremont Unified School District (FUSD), will be honored as Citizen of the Year and Lena Zee, past president of Rotary Club of Fremont, will be honored as Volunteer of the Year.

Dr. Jim Morris began his career in education 34 years ago as a teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). Prior to being appointed Superintendent in FUSD in July 2010, he served as the Chief Operating Officer and Chief of Staff for 900 schools in LAUSD.

During his 30 year tenure in LAUSD, he worked as a teacher, a principal, and a variety of other administrative positions, including Assistant Superintendent of Instruction and Superintendent of District 2. After serving in LAUSD, he is now on his fifth year of service as Superintendent of FUSD.

He holds a bachelors degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo, a masters degree in Educational Administration, and a Doctor of Education degree from the University of California, Los Angeles.

Lena Zee became a lifetime member of CBC nearly 20 years ago because the mission statement of CBC echoed what she believed in. She has been serving on the CBC Board and chairing the Culture Exchange Committee, served as its vice president, and is actively involved in CBC activities and CBC-sponsored major events. She serves as volunteer driver for non driving immigrants while acting as their interpreter at various appointments.

Zee served as the first female president of Chinese ethnicity at the Rotary Club of Fremont in 2008-2009. She spearheaded an international project called SPAN (Stop Pediatric AIDS Now), which took her to remote, poverty stricken mountainous villages in southwestern YunNan province of China for site visits and reporting.

Healthy Kids Day Keeping kids minds and bodies active

To kick start physical activity and learning now and throughout the summer a critical out of-school time for kids Ð on Saturday, April 25, the Fremont/Newark YMCA is celebrating Healthy Kids Day with a free community event for kids and families. YMCAs Healthy Kids Day, the Ys national initiative to improve families health and well being, features activities such as games, arts and crafts, and a mini fitness class to motivate and teach families how to develop a healthy routine at home. Families will enjoy a special visit from the Fremont Police Department as well!

The Y is so much more than sports, child care, camp and a place for kids to hang out. We support families in their efforts to instill healthy habits at home, said Mackenzie Hunt, Associate Community Program Director at the Fremont/Newark YMCA. We know that it can sometimes feel like a challenge. So at Healthy Kids Day, well encourage kids to stay physically and intellectually active all summer long, and give families tips they can easily replicate at home. Its free and open to the community.
