ASKED AROUND TOWN
How do you tend to make friends in town?
inside your Pleasanton Weekly
Jim Korhummel Business owner I coached my daughter’s soccer team for about 10 years and became lifelong friends with so many of her teammates’ parents. Even though the team no longer exists and the girls have all gone their separate ways, many of us parents have remained the best of friends.

Vic Ahaev Business owner Like a lot of people, I’ve made so many friends through my children’s sports and other activities. When you spend a lot of time on the sidelines or in the audience supporting your kids together, it creates a really tight bond.
Dot French Realtor I’ve made most of my friends in town through my husband because he has lived here for years and I only moved here recently in order to be with him. I must say, he has great taste in friends! I’ve met such nice people in the short time I’ve been here.
Alex Ahaev Daycare provider I often make new friends just by talking to people wherever I go in town and being friendly. I find that when I’m friendly, most people are friendly back. One of my favorite places to make new friends is at the dog park because anyone who goes there necessarily has a common interest with me — dogs — so we immediately have something to talk about.

Contractor I’ve made most of my local friends through my children. Even when the children have grown apart, I’ve remained friends with their parents. We talk about the kids occasionally, but our friendships are now independent of the kids and have been for many years now. —Compiled by Nancy Lewis and Jenny Lyness Have a Streetwise question?
