October started with a bang for area residents, as a plethora of events and activities were held.

Education was the goal of the animal adoption event at Turlock Tractor Supply on Saturday. This year’s adoption event included a petting zoo, face painting, and a horse exhibit. 

An energy fair was held at Walnut Education Center that featured recycling and a variety of green activities.

On Sunday, Turlock Fire Station No. 1 opened their doors and invited the community to participate in safety demonstrations and enjoy a free hotdog and entertainment.

Ladies from the Dazzling Divas Red Hat Society in Newman donated 40 hand-made quilts to St. Francis Assisted Care in Turlock on Monday.
