A generous donation from a Pleasanton couple brings the game of chess to downtown Pleasanton. Knut and Joan Ojermark had noticed the chess table between the Museum on Main and Blue Agave Restaurant in the 600 block of Main Street had long sat vacant. Knut Ojermark, who enjoys playing chess, wanted to make the game accessible to anyone who wanted to play. Ojermark has donated two sets of chess pieces to Blue Agave and the Museum on Main Street.
Chess pieces can be picked up from the Museum on Main Street located at 603 Main Street Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and from Blue Agave located at 625 Main Street from 11:30 a.m. -2:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
A name, telephone number and some form of deposit is required to receive the chess pieces. For questions, call Knut Ojermark (925) 922-3785.
