Special thanks are in order for Interwest Consulting Group who donated the food and to CalWater/West Valley Construction for lending us the BBQ to cook for that many people. Thank you to the Atherton Library for hosting a booth and bringing the imagination playground which is always a hit among the kids... and to the Atherton Disaster and Preparedness Team (ADAPT) for hosting a booth and engaging residents in disaster prep. And as always to CHP for landing the bringing the highlight of the event, landing their emergency helicopter in the Park for children to sit in and take pictures.
While community members socialized with other community members, children were able to play in jumpy houses, have their faces painted, get balloons and take tours of the fire engines and police cars that were parked at the event. Reddy Fox was out in full force dancing to the music provided by Kimbrough Salas and the children enjoyed giving the Fox high fives and hugs. Over 300 community members showed up for the event, and everyone had the opportunity to meet their local police officers and fire fighters. Thank you to everyone who made this annual event a success.
