PTO Extravaganza draws many

Many vendors were set up in booths in the California Elementary School gym on Saturday, Nov. 10, for the PTO Extravaganza. The event drew many customers searching for just the right Christmas gift, or something for themselves, or maybe a tutu for their dog. There was also facepainting for the younger set. Lunch and snack items were available on the stage. Some went to the PTO event while family members were at the Pintos Football game down the hill at Riley Field. Others went to the bazaar first and then down the hill in time to watch the game, which ended with a good solid win for the home team. The Elementary School Book Fair, held upstairs in the school library, was also open for the PTO event. The California PTO has a number of fundraisers each year to benefit the school in different areas.
