There were many smiles and laughter during our first annual Pumpkin Carving Contest! Participants were judged on their creativity, craftsmanship and work space neatness. Patrick and Evan won first place, sharing the $20 cash prize.
Lizzie was recognized for having the scariest pumpkin, Joey the most traditional, Veronica the most whimsical, Evan the most sentimental and Matt the most detailed.
Thank you to everyone who participated, carvers and spectators! Also thank you to the Farm Committee for hosting and buying the supplies.
Farm Day was a flurry of activity: A group of interesting, energetic and goal-oriented young people volunteered from Tech Soup and Terry’s Pioneer Group also made it out. We completed our entire task list and also enjoyed playing games, listening to music and hanging out. Thanks for joining us!

|Support for Families of Children with Disabilities & San Francisco Recreation and Parks present:|
Festival of arts & recreation for kids with disabilities or special health care needs
Saturday, May 2, 2015
Heart melting yet rejuvenating, plucky yet ephemeral, Addie Liechty and her band of six combine folk, blues and bluegrass influences to create a show that engages the audience to clap, sway, and often ruminate over the honest and exposed lyrics. They combine guitar, fiddle, banjo, upright bass, light percussion and thickly layered harmonic vocals to create a sound all their own that never fails to charm the audience into willful submission and to feel like their heart strings have been pleasantly tugged.
Founded by Angela Dorantes and Avilee Goodwin, Steppin’ Out Dance Studio began in 1995, evolving out of the historic Betty May Dance Studios. “Throughout our history we have strived to offer the young people of the neighborhood a place to learn dance techniques, improve grace, poise, self-esteem, and gain performing experience without a competitive atmosphere. We give children and young adults an outlet to express themselves freely through dance.”
Proud to flaunt their Golden State roots, Seconds On End follow in the footsteps of all the great California rock groups gone by. Fusing elements from varying genres, 60’s psychedelic rock to funk, reggae and everything in between, they create a sound that is wholly their own. SOE have been wowing crowds in Norcal and beyond with their organic, groove-oriented jams
