A look back…
In addition to the over 2200 registrations and hundreds of participants we have served safely in summer camps, in-person classes, and virtual learning this year, as well as the ways we have tried to bring the community together with our social media-driven events, holiday contests, chalk art, drive-in events, and the like, we have been heavily invested in serving the essential needs of our community.
Many on our team found themselves doing a little bit of everything here– helping seniors socially and essentially, aiding rent relief programs, supporting teachers, providing childcare, creating safe places to shelter in fire and cold, dispensing clean water for the homeless, supporting downtown dining, making sure our parks, open spaces, and programs were safe to operate under ever-changing State and Public Health guidelines, learning new operations and software processes, and the list goes on. And, we still found a way to open the most magical and spectacular playground on the Peninsula!
Please take a few minutes to take in all we have endured together over this past year encapsulated in this video from the State of the City Address this past Monday night. If you missed it or want to re-watch it, no problem, visit www.redwoodcity.org/stateofthecity.
The pandemic may not be over, but it has been a pleasure serving you. We look forward to the days where we can see you, and your whole faces, regularly, again.
