On Oct. 7 the fair runs 10 a.m.-10 p.m. In addition to all the regular fair activities, the “Kids’ Night In” event at 7 p.m. gives parents a night out. “We do Kids’ Night In every year, with a jumpy house and a movie, so parents can go outside and enjoy the fair,” Shannon said. “We have a new band performing Saturday night, the Peelers, who play mashups and Top 40. It’s a free live concert, and we’ll have a dance floor set up.”. Raffles are a big draw at the country fair, since one is for a 2018 Jeep Compass Sport or $20,000 cash. Individual tickets are $100.

The juxtapositions and counterpoints in Weems’ work, and in the gallery installations, are remarkable. One wall is nearly filled with photographs of her family, a series begun in the 1970s to counteract reports that the black family was deteriorating. But then, just to the side is an image from her “Ain’t Jokin’ ” series: the stereotyped Aunt Jemima and Uncle Moses salt and pepper shakers on a kitchen counter. There is both anger and wit in Weems’ “Not Manet’s Type” series, with her image, like a model ready to pose, reflected in a dressing-table mirror. Manet, Picasso and de Kooning would have rejected her, or, she notes, she would have rejected them.
“We have students that have been hired at Capitol Honda, Stevens Creek Acura, Beshoff Mercedes, and two of our students work right here at Tesla in Fremont,” said teacher Sorin Neagu, “We have a very nice network, So, basically, this is their first job, right here in our garage.”, Some students go on to study engineering, others become automotive technicians and some pursue unrelated fields but still appreciate what they learned in the program, “I’m hoping I can work and be a technician and eventually get a business degree and open up my own business,” said Anthony Avalos, an 18-year-old San Jose senior in the program, who said he enjoys taking apart engines, “It’s kind of like a puzzle, You have to really use your brain when you’re doing embroidered ballet flats- size 40 (us 9.5) silk petit point uzbekistan boho festival needlepoint ethnic tribal folk suzani flora it, because you have to know where everything goes.”..
Yet EOYDC has remained a steadfast refuge for young people since 1978. Its beautiful, newly renovated building at 82nd Avenue and International is a beacon of light in the midst of hopelessness. You may have heard about the “school-to-prison pipeline.” Children — most of them minorities — get pushed out of public schools for disciplinary reasons and wind up in prison. EOYDC is running a different kind of pipeline — straight from some of the city’s most disenfranchised neighborhoods to college. There is a GED program to give youth a second chance at an education. The Pathway to College program prepares those in school for higher learning, takes young people on campus tours around the country and provides financial assistance to the college-bound. The annual scholarship fundraiser is Sunday.
