Last year’s event was canceled by stormy weather, but celebrants this year just moved indoors to dodge a drizzle

The West Sacramento Chamber of Commerce threw its annual holiday party at city hall on Friday evening.

With a bit of moisture in the air, the party moved from the city hall front lawn to the indoor “galleria.”

Attendees included many eager youngsters waiting for a confidential word with Santa, who was scheduled to arrive by fire truck part-way into the party.

There were refreshments, and Christmas carols.

Thieves hit West Sac rowing club, local store makes donation

FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — NOV 27, 2013 —

By Steve Marschke
News-Ledger Editor

The River City Rowing Club was hit by burglars two weeks ago.

On Nov. 11, reports club president Bill Naddy, members discovered somebody had taken some equipment stored outside the boathouse at the Port of West Sacramento. The loss included a pair of motors used to drive boats for coaches.

“They took our older two-stroke outboards and three batteries,” said Naddy. “Since our newer electric-start motors are locked and bolted to the launches, they couldn’t get those, and they just cut the battery wires and took the batteries.”

The loss was about $2,000, said Naddy. But the blow was softened by help from a Harbor Boulevard auto parts store.

“The local NAPA store donated new batteries to us,” said Naddy.

The club has diverted some of its fundraising proceeds to replace the stolen, older motors with newer ones. The club needs a lot of coaches’ launches – and motors – because of the numbers of people it puts on the water. River City Rowing Club currently has about 120 members on its high school team (they come from various schools in the region) and about 170 adult members.

At about the same time as the boat club theft, the nearby training facility for the West Sacramento Fire Department also experienced a theft, said Naddy. Taken were some roll-up doors used for firefighter training.
