Highlights: Spring Egg Hunt, Earth Day / EcoFest 2017, Home Energy Saving Kits from the Library
Connect With Pacifica This Week

I had the great pleasure of being one of the servers for the Senior Volunteer Recognition Dinner at the Community Center this past Wednesday.  Along with Mayor Pro Tem John Keener, Councilmembers Sue Digre and Deidre Martin, and a number of others who wanted to show their appreciation for the valuable services provided by our volunteers, we were all extremely impressed by all that is contributed by so many to make Pacifica a great community.  The number of hours contributed to the wide variety of activities supported by the Parks, Beaches & Recreation (PB&R) Department is truly remarkable.

PB&R is not slowing down.  As you can see below, this weekend it is overseeing two Spring egg hunt events. They will be taking place at 4pm on Friday the 14th at Fairmont Park and 10am on Saturday the 15th at Frontierland Park.  Don’t be late – the hunt shouldn’t last long!  Enjoy.

Please let me know if you have comments or questions, and  thank you for wanting to   Connect with Pacifica!
