What’s Planned for the 4th!  

And a Real Estate Stat Update


It’s June already!  But before you know it, the 4th of July and all its festivities will be here! Enjoy all that June brings:  graduations, weddings, Father’s Day, end of school parties, and vacations, but take a moment to write a check and mail it in to donate to the fireworks for the 4th of July!


We did it last year and can do it again! Don and Norma are matching donations up to $5,000 to make the fireworks the most spectacular! Last year’s were increased by $10,000 worth of the best fireworks money can buy! If you were there last year, you know they were the best ever, so let’s see if we can match or even surpass it!  “Spectacular” was often heard to describe the fireworks down at College Park High School, seen from the school fields or nearby hills. People come from far and wide to enjoy the annual show. Live music adds drama and enjoyment. Food trucks and booths make it an easy way to relax and enjoy a picnic outdoors. 


Mail your check to: 4th of July Commission, PO Box 23272, Pleasant Hill, CA 94523


Real Estate Update:

2018’s real estate sales market has been robust, with fast sales being the norm as buyers hustle to get into a home, settle down, and enjoy life here in central Contra Costa County. With higher demand than inventory, everything gets looked at and, if priced well, sells fast, often with multiple offers bidding the price up, resulting in soaring real estate prices. Check out the comparison between this year and last year!
