The Family Fun Fest’s motto is “Celebrating Our Community with Fun for All”. Our family serving organizations, and the whole community - businesses, schools, churches, and individuals - are working together to provide resources, education and services for the health and well-being of everyone. We hope that folks will come out to have some good old- fashioned fun in the beautiful community of Calpine.
Locals should be on the lookout for a postcard in your PO Box from the Tobacco Prevention Program. Please don’t mistake it for junk mail! One side will have a tobacco reduction message and the other side the Family Fun Fest announcement. There are directions there that say – bring this postcard to the Family Fun Fest and look for the race car flags where you can redeem it for a free lunch coupon for you and your family. Generous donations from our MediCAL managed care organizations, Anthem Blue Cross and California Health and Wellness, will make it possible to provide 200 free “lunches for locals”. These are available on a first come, first serve basis, to those who show up with postcard in hand to redeem for lunch coupons to get a free hotdog or veggie dog, chips and drink from the Marketplace Snack Shack.
The Loyalton Senior Van has offered to provide a free shuttle from Loyalton to Calpine and back. If you need a lift to the Family Fun Fest you will need to reserve your spot by calling 993-4770. Space is limited.
