Water began flowing down the Kings River from Pine Flat Reservoir this week, as pic- tured June 15 looking north from the Goodfellow Bridge on Annadale Avenue east of Sanger. The river recreation season is likely to be a limited one because of drought conditions limiting the amount of water being released from the reservoir.

The Sanger cham- ber's events calendar, like many cities, took a hard hit when the COV- ID-19 pandemic struck the region and country
in March 2020. Virtually
all of the city's annual events were postponed and canceled in the last year, including the 2020 chamber awards, 2021 Blossom Trail events, National Night Out, and the annual winter Toy- land parade.

The Sanger Chamber
continues to take infor- mation from interested booth vendors and is providing ticket infor- mation for the upcoming 2021 4th of July Spectac- ular, taking place at the 6:30 p.m. Sunday, July 4. The event returns this year at its traditional lo- cation, the Sanger High School practice fields located off Bethel Ave- nue west of the campus. Food, arts and crafts, a children's play area and entertainment are scheduled.
Pearson also said the chamber's planned event on Saturday, July 10, to honor Sanger native and Raiders coaching legend Tom Flores has been postponed to this fall, either early or mid September. The event in downtown Sanger will honor Flores and also show off the new mural located at the southwest corner of 7th and N streets. Pearson said the event also will be after Flores' August induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, so Sanger's "hometown hero" will have his clas- sic yellow Hall of Fame blazer.
For information on upcoming Sanger events, contact Pearson at the chamber at (559) 875-4575.
