Village Chat Feb. 15, 2018
Last month Jane Witkowski sent the following note and picture:
“When [on a] break from the emotional process of sifting through the remains of our property I pulled the Kenwood Press out from the car and sat in the sun for a moment. My husband and I got the giggles about the idea of taking a picture of me in front of the house with the Kenwood Press. Sometimes you have to stop crying and just have a good laugh.”
Thoughts of hope and love and thankfulness are still palpable in the air, and sometimes in the creek. Arthur Dawson snapped this picture from the Glen Ellen Bridge on Jan. 22.
The Kenwood School sixth grade class usually goes to the Marin Headlands in October for their week of Outdoor Education. The Spaghetti Feed last September was the final big fundraiser making it all possible. But you know what happened next… So the class finally had their trip the week of Feb. 5-9, which, if you remember, was an absolutely glorious sunny week all over the Bay Area. Their teacher, Sheila Morrissey, said she was proud of their stamina on the hikes and that they really had a great time.
And speaking of Kenwood School, mark your calendar for May 12, the Kenwood Education Foundation's annual party/fundraiser, Lights, Camera, Auction! This year's theme is the very appropriate, “Hello, Kenwood!” As the song says, “It's so nice to have you back where you belong. You're lookin' swell, Kenwood. I can tell, Kenwood, you're still glowin', you're still crowin', you're still goin' STRONG!” Early bird tickets are $75 up until April 15, so go online and order yours today. After that, they're $100 per person. Go to kef.schoolauction.net/lca2018. The party will be at Kenwood Farms & Garden, May 12, 4:30-10 p.m.
St. Patrick's Episcopal Church is hosting another Oakmont gathering for people interested in finding out more about the church and meeting the new rector, Doyle Dietz Allen. It's from 3 to 5 p.m. at Susan Boak's house. Call the church at 833-4228 for more information and to RSVP.
That's all for now. Thank you to everyone who sent in news and photos. It's easy to do - just email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 833-5155 and chat me up! - AQP
