Another fabulous endeavor by members of the community resulted in a day of frolic and fun at the Morgan Hill Community and Cultural Center on Saturday, May 15.
The fifth annual Art ala Carte and Children’s Safety Fair, with a theme of “Art Around the World,”attracted nearly 2,000 young people and their families. There were 15 different art stations, 10 different information booths, music in the amphitheater provided by “Trio Oro” and a bicycle rodeo all sponsored through a collaborative effort by the City of Morgan Hill Recreation and Community Services Division, the Police Department and First 5 of Santa Clara County.
The event was made possible by several community groups and businesses that deserve a big thank you for volunteering to work at the art stations and for donating money and supplies to the free event. The many contributors were the Rotary Club, Abbott Laboratories, South Valley Developers, Specialized Bikes, Dr. Bas Wafelbakker, Johnson Lumber Ace Hardware, Marie Calendars, Jim Richards, manager of Baskin Robbins Cochrane location, Coyote Valley Sporting Clays, Go Kids, Wildlife Education and Rehabilitation Center, Antoine Faris, the Masons, Nob Hill Foods, Jamba Juice, Bill Tykol, Temple Emmanuel, Steve Tate, Sweet Retreats and the City of Morgan Hill.
I also would like to thank the committee members who spent months planning the event. They include Nancy Domnauer, Phyllis Dieter, Laura Brunton, Debbie Whittenberg, Chiquy Schoenduve, Rodney Reno, Megan Toeniskoetter, Riva Truillo, Karen Lengsfield, Lisa Ramirez, Aja Ochoa, Jan Martin, Mary Chamberlain, Cathy Boettcher and Angela Moore.
Morgan Hill is a great place to live and play because of all of you.
