What a Summer, Fair Oaks!
Whew! What a busy summer in Fair Oaks!
After months of community events, our two candidates for the 40th Honorary Mayor’s race
smashed all fundraising records with a combined total of $51,285 raised this year!! Wow!! Keith Wright and Jim Cralle set the bar very high! Congratulations to both and to Keith for being “sashed” as #40! That brings the total raised for our community and local causes to over $431,000 since 1979! We already have our eyeballs out for next year’s candidates. Are you a member of the Fair Oaks Chamber? Do you have a favorite local community cause that you would like to support? Let us know.

One more shout out to a summer filled with music at FO Concerts in the Park! Thanks again to our community partners, sponsors, musicians, attendees, and the countless volunteers selling food, drinks, ice cream and t-shirts each week and a big THANK YOU to Del’s Pizza for donating all of those delicious pizzas!
Next up is our 35th Christmas in the Village event on Saturday, December 1st, from 3 pm to 8 pm, rain or shine. It’s a community favorite and a wonderful family day with music, craft vendors, children’s activities, pictures with Santa Claus, shopping and dining, and of course, the well-loved parade through the Village! Time is running short to sign-up as a vendor, to be a sponsor or even a parade entrant. Promote your business or club and have a great time in Fair Oaks!

Last but not least, we always need event day volunteers as this is a major community event.
You can find all of the details at our website and you can sign up to receive our e-newsletter by sending an email to or call our Executive Director- xtraordinaire, Kim Pitillo in the office at 916-967-2903.

Donate your coats to Lyon’s Coat Drive!

I’m excited to tell you about our annual coat drive. We hold it every year and gather gently used coats for local charitable organizations and shelters. The drive is held the entire month of October, with drop off locations at all 17 Lyon offices throughout Greater Sacramento. All donations from the community and Lyon agents and staff directly benefit area agencies.

Last year, Lyon agents and staff collected and donated 14,840 coats to 25 organizations. Each Lyon office designates specific organizations to receive the coats and delivers them. Some of these included: Elk Grove Coat Closet, STEAC, Kids coats to Mustard Seed and Adults to Wind, Powerhouse Ministries, Sacramento Food Bank, Sierra Family and Child Services.

So, gather up any gently used coats, and contact me if you would like to donate them!

Thank you for your generous support.
