Find Waldo to win prizes
It’s an age-old question, one that Morgan Hill residents will try to answer.
Throughout July, BookSmart continues the tradition of hosting a month-long event known as Find Waldo Local, during which kids can crawl over town looking for small figurines of everybody’s favorite candy-striped adventurer to earn prizes.
Twenty Morgan Hill businesses have agreed to welcome Waldo (or at least a six-inches-tall representation of him) into their shops, and then hide him anywhere within the public space of the business. Carrying their FWL “passports,” would-be Waldo hunters can then collect stamps from each business—provided they can actually find him.
Find Waldo Local runs through July 31.

Gilroy High vaccine site closes
With three out of four Santa Clara County residents ages 12 and older fully vaccinated against Covid-19, the Gilroy High School vaccination site closed on July 7.
Appointments will now take place at Valley Health Center Gilroy.
Santa Clara County’s mass vaccination sites have been closing in recent weeks as demand for the vaccine has dropped. According to county data, 82 percent of those eligible in the county have received at least a first dose of the vaccine, while 76 percent are fully inoculated.
Officials estimate the Gilroy High site has administered nearly 53,000 vaccines since it opened in February.
