Music Mike

Photo gallery (35 shots of the show and the audience)

Music Mike charmed children, parents and grandparents with a music- and and dance-filled performance at Lake Clementia Amphitheater Sunday afternoon. The merry adventure began with dozens of children singing along to time-honored favorites like “Bingo” and “Ring Around the Rosie,” then took a madcap turn with a version of “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” that featured crawling like snakes, hopping like rabbits and flying like birds.  After “hotdog rolls” down the slopes of the amphitheater, marching with maracas, lots of singing, a geometry lesson with colorful scarves, and some spirited dancing with the folks, it was time to go home, and every child received a lollipop compliments of Music Mike. The Kiwanis Club, which has made the free annual event part of growing up in Rancho Murieta, said about 170 attended the show. Click for larger image.

Dog chipping

From left, Girl Scouts Abby Donnalley, Kaydence Farnsworth and Faith Hawkins, all 10, visit with the dogs waiting to get identity microchips Sunday afternoon at the Gazebo. Unfortunately, there was a communications breakdown with the SPCA ... and its chipping van didn't show up. After 45 minutes, with a waiting list 18 names long, and lots of dogs and one cat on hand, the Rancho Murieta Association explained the situation and said the event would be rescheduled soon. But the Girl Scouts, from Troop 1568, did well with their wishlist collection for animals: Among the items collected were dog and cat food, animal toys, a fur trimmer and a large dog crate.
