Saturdays with the Supervisor

Everyone (best for ages 14-Adult) is invited to have a conversation with the Recreation Supervisor Mark Duncanson as he ignites conversations with one prompts centered around arts and entertainment. These free events are designed as a dialogue and education in The City of Pleasanton’s Civic Arts Division that includes the recreation programs, events, facilities, and operations of the Firehouse Arts Center and Amador Theaters. Participants are encouraged to dive deep into the theme of each session and come with their questions.
