Over fifty community volunteers, County of Yolo, Yolo Fire Protection District, Yolo Blacksmith, Yolo Market, Cache Creek High School, and dozens of generous businesses worked with the Friends and Yolo County Library to make this event special. Families spent the day enjoying music by the live band Souled Out and DJ Chris Rockwell who donated their services, learning about oil and battery recycling from Yolo County Integrated Waste Management, viewing antique fire engines from local fire districts and an antique garbage truck, and getting information about citizenship from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
Raffles prizes were donated by businesses and individuals with proceeds from the event going towards programs and services at the Yolo Branch Library, which serves the communities of Yolo, Zamora, Dunnigan and surrounding areas.
