Oktoberfest is right around the corner
Our next special event is the Oktoberfest and will be held on Friday, Oct. 14, sponsored by the El Dorado Senior Support Council and the Placerville Nutrition Lunch Program. It will be held in the El Dorado Hills Community Services District gym on Harvard Way. Doors open at 10:30 a.m., entertainment is at 11 and lunch is served at noon.
