"Designated driver refers to the selection of a person who remains sober as the responsible driver of a vehicle whilst others have been allowed to drink alcoholic beverages.

The Turlock Senior Citizens had a very successful "Yard" Sale last week that, because of weather and the generosity of everyone, stayed indoors. Thanks to the community, it was well attended. Many members were very generous with their time to sort, price, and assist with the selling and clean up, making a big job light.
