FUN THINGS TO DO IN ROSEVILLE CA AREA
Can you BELIEVE how many interesting and autumn fun things to do in Roseville CA and the surrounding area???? And be aware – Some, including registration deadlines are THIS WEEK – EARLY THIS WEEK – so check them all out and don’t miss out on the fun YOU are interested in. 😁 And if you didn’t get this in time to see them – be sure to remember to check my Facebook page – @RosevilleCaliforniaJoys OR friend me on Facebook – KayeSwainRE – as those I am able to update faster and easier. 😊
There are all sorts of fun things going on all around our area. And that includes our great farms in South Placer County. The photo above is just a few of the things I spotted on their Instagram page. Click the page to go there and then click each photo for details of what they are sharing.

Plus an FYI for next month (which is only 2 days away), they are also announcing, “Oct 21 MONSTER TRUCK BASH + F4s”. Now, I’ll be honest, I am not quite sure what that means but monster + Halloween sounds fun. I’m guessing it’s big trucks like on the kids show Blaze, which is more my speed and only when my grandkids are over. 🤣
PS If you’d like to see one of their past races…

Interesting News for Those of Us Living in Roseville CA Area
Roseville Parkway Update
Coolness – here’s an interesting news article with more information about the Roseville Parkway Update!
Quiet News! Pickle Ball Is Breaking the Sound Barrier?
Well, not really. But apparently because pickle ball is so popular, if you are playing too close to homes, the noise can be a bother. So now, USA Pickle Ball is announcing a new QUIET category for pickle ball equipment. Sounds good to me. Tho happily, all the parks I’ve played at in Roseville have been far enough from homes, I don’t think it’s an issue. Even if they are only across the street. But maybe if it’s a place with many courts and competitions? 😁 https://usapickleball.org/news/usa-pickleball-announces-quiet-category-for-pickleball-products/
Happier Flying News May Be Coming Soon for Delta and United
I am a total Southwest Airlines fan. They were wonderfully flexible for me when I was a frequent flyer but also caring for my sweet senior mom – if I needed to cancel at the last minute, I could. They flew to almost all the places I needed to go. And they were budget friendly. MY needs have changed but all that is still true for them! Now that I’ve given them a happy hoorah, I have a couple more to share for two other airlines.
United is in the news because of settling a recent lawsuit and as a result, they have agreed to “add a filter to the booking tool on its website to help consumers find flights on which the plane can more easily accommodate their wheelchairs. The cargo doors on some planes are too small to easily get a motorized wheelchair in the belly of the plane. The airline also agreed to refund the fare difference if a passenger has to take a more expensive flight to accommodate their wheelchair.” Having cared for various boomers and seniors in my family who did travel using wheel chairs, I applaud United for this positive change.
Delta was mentioned in the Minneapolis Business Journal (NO, I am NOT moving to Minneapolis – it’s connected to my subscription to the Sacramento Business Journal 😁), which stated, “Two weeks after Delta Air Lines Inc. made [DRAMATIC] changes to its SkyMiles program and said it would limit access to its SkyClub lounges [BIG TIME] — both of which drew [HUGELY] fierce criticism from customers — the airline’s CEO said the moves may have been too drastic. [YOU THINK!!!!???!?!?!?!?] They are expected to make changes to their changes in the next few weeks. Click here to read another article on it with more details. And YES – the semi-snarkey commenets in the [ ] were mine. All of this just makes me appreciate Southwest even MORE!!!! 😁 They aren’t perfect. Neither am I. But I do enjoy flying with them from and to Sacramento International Airport, have been blessed many times by their great employees, and HIGHLY recommend them – as you can tell by clicking here.

Roseville Train Depot Emergency Siren Test
This Monday October 2, 2023 at 12 pm – the Union Pacific Railroad will be testing their emergency notification siren. Nearby residents may hear the siren.

Nationwide Test of the Emergency Alert System
TWO days after our Roseville emergency alert test, on Wednesday October 4, 2023, FEMA is having their OWN test – only this is for the entire United States.
“FEMA and FCC to conduct nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System October 4,” per The City of Roseville CA website! They shared that, “On Wednesday, October 4 at approximately 11:20 a.m. PST, FEMA in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System and Wireless Emergency Alerts. The test will be initiated using FEMA’s Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) and directed to all consumer cell phones as well as through radio and television broadcasters, cable systems, satellite radio, television providers, and wireline video providers. If your mobile phone is on and within range of an active cell tower from a participating wireless provider, you should receive the test message. The test is anticipated to last approximately one minute and is accompanied by a unique tone and vibration. The message on your mobile should appear “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.” For more info, visit the FEMA website.
