The VWC’s Annual Meeting featured delightful music (thanks to Peter Young, Ti Lamb, Rick Edny and Sam Sternlight), delicious food (potluck!), fascinating updates on many VWC projects and programs, and enlightening talks by our elected representatives including State Assembly Member Mark Stone, Supervisor Bruce McPherson, Leslie Villegas, Field Representative for State Senator Bill Monning, and a thoughtful note from Anna Eshoo read by VWC VP Amanda Robinson.
Many aspects of the VWC’s activities have been covered in our e-Newsletter and are on the website, but a couple new things stood out. Michele Estrin-Gelblum is helping lead a strong renewed interest in Disaster Preparedness throughout the SLV. Tying into the CERT program, which has a strong program in Felton thanks to the leadership of Felton Fire, the goal is to have neighbors and neighborhoods come together to formalize support for one another if an earthquake or other disaster isolates them from the outside world. Watch for more information in the coming months.
Education Committee Chair, Roz Alley, announced the exciting rejuvenation of the SLV Education Foundation which will focus on raising funds to provide high tech equipment to SLV students. And the exciting improvements made by recipients of the VWC’s Community Grant Program were highlighted to much applause.
