ECR Community Cleaning Day

Saturday, February 27, 2021

Dear Family & Friends,

As you know, families have been moving from El Camino Real (ECR) to the newly open Safe Parking Space on Geng Road. As families move, the KSP and our community partner Kafenia decided to bring our community for a street cleaning day!

The goal of this day is to bring RV dwellers and other community members to interact, get to know each other, while lightly cleaning our almost empty street. This will be an outdoor, COVID Safe event. 

 

Please join us on 2/27/21 From 10:30 AM to 1 PM 

Sign up here to let us know you’re coming

Can’t make it?   

Please DONATE to help support the  RV families!

Parents and friends at Barron Park Elementary School invite everyone to participate in a Walk-a-Thon Scavenger Hunt — October 9-11 !

On October 9-11th, Barron Park Elementary School PTA is organizing a physically distant, Walk-a-Thon Scavenger Hunt weekend in the neighborhood!

Barron Park families, friends, and neighbors can help raise money for Barron Park Elementary School by walking steps while exploring for fun things in the neighborhood. The Barron Park classroom with the highest percentage of participants and steps walked will be awarded: 
THE FAMOUS GOLDEN SNEAKER! 🙂

How can YOU participate? – At https://barronpark.walkstarter.org there is a real-time overview of our classrooms’ participants. Please consider sponsoring a specific student or make a general donation to our school! Your donation is highly appreciated and tax-deductible!

– Download the Participation Package and print out a Barron Park Walk-a-Thon Bee. Put it up in your window – facing out, for anyone to see. These bees will add even more fun to the scavenger hunt!

– Print or save the scavenger hunt item list digitally to bring outside on your walk(s) the weekend of October 9-11. Enjoy the fun!!

WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER while physically distant and wearing masks, we can still have a fun time walking and exploring outdoors!

—Our school will directly benefit from the money raised by this event by purchasing school supplies, help with technology resources, funding school events, scholarships, and fulfill teacher grants!

During this time of shelter-in-place, Bol Park – and the donkey pasture with Perry and Jenny – has become a popular destination. The City of Palo Alto has posted signage cautioning against petting the donkeys and touching the gate as these are possible modes of exposure to the Coronavirus, but we do urge everyone to keep visiting!

With so many new visitors, we would like to ask regulars to help guide everyone on proper behavior at the pasture. Please DO step up and say something if you see something wrong! Here are a few reminders when you visit the pasture:

No feeding of anything! We feed the donkeys a balanced veterinarian-approved diet, and other foods may be dangerous, including especially apples or carrots, as Perry is missing teeth and may choke on food offered at the gate. Dozens of people come by every day, and if we allow random feeding, we would have no idea of what or how much the donkeys are eating. This was a problem for both Mickey and Niner in the past.

Do not pet and do not taunt them or throw stones to get their attention. This is their home. They will come and say hello if they wish but please respect their preference to stay away from the gate. You can see them “up close” on Sunday mornings, 10 to 11 a.m. at Bol Park.

Contact us if you see anything concerning (phone numbers posted in the pasture kiosk). We count on neighbors and passersby to alert us to any problems at the pasture as well as any injuries that you may notice.

Thank you for the love and caring and helping to keep the donkeys healthy and safe.

On behalf of Jenny Kiratli and all the donkey handlers

Keep Calm and Bray On!
