Looking for fun or a way to make a difference? Here are five things you can do today:
• Dr. Kimberly Allison is the director of Seattle's Breast Pathology at University of Washington Medical Center, where she specializes in breast cancer diagnosis. She diagnosed breast cancer in so many others, but never expected to find it in her own body.
Allison is scheduled to visit Marin Cancer Institute Wednesday, 5:30-7:30 p.m., to discuss her own story of discovery and determination as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Allison is in a unique position as she shares her experiences as a patient and doctor in her autobiography Red Sunshine.
• The weekly farmers market returns to the Town Center, noon to 5 p.m. every Wednesday. Find fresh fruits and vegetables, along with flowers and prepared dishes.
• Looking for a seasonal job with the holidays fast approaching? Well, local retailers are looking for you! Several businesses at The Village will have applications handy in a hiring fair Wednesday, 3-6 p.m., in the main concourse.
• Did you enjoy The Fast and The Furious? Love watching those car chase scenes? Well, get up close to the real action when drifting returns to the area at Sonoma's Infineon Raceway. More than 40 racers will perform simultaneous donuts in the raceway’s main paddock area. This will serve as tune-up for the official attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Record in the Most Cars Performing Donuts Simultaneously category. The current world record is 57 cars. The official attempt at the record will take place during the opening night of the 2012 Sonoma Drift season in March.
• The College of Marin Department of Athletics and the Circle of Champions are honored to present a celebration of the career of Coach Cal Riemcke and the entry of his name into the College of Marin Athletic Hall of Fame. Tickets are $49 each. The evening includes dinner at San Rafael Joe's.
