April, 2019 - In This Issue:
From the Desk of Our Executive Director

If you have been reading our newsletters regularly, you know that spring ranks high as one of my favorite seasons of the year here at 4Cs of Alameda County. After the rush of the holidays and new year, and the plethora of (much needed) rain winter brings, spring's sunnier days and colorful blooms remind me that 4Cs of Alameda County's Free Children's Faire is just around the corner! While we have been behind the scenes preparing for months, be sure to mark your own calendars for May 18th from 10am-1pm for the Children's Faire. This year we are gearing up for a day of fun with a few new additions to the popular event. You can see what we have in store for the Children's Faire on our Facebook Event Page and, as always, you can find me at the welcome table as you enter. Be sure to say "hi" and, if your family is one of the first 100 to join us, I'll have an extra special gift for you!
Be well,
Renee S. Herzfeld
Executive Director
