BAYWOOD COFFEE SOCIALS TO RESTART! SATURDAY, MAY 6, 9AM-11AM BAY TREE PARK, 150 DARTMOUTH ROAD
Due to the heavy rains and winds, we are going to wait until May to end "winter break" and restart our Baywood Coffee Socials. The first Coffee Social will be Saturday, May 6, 9am-11am, in Bay Tree Park at 150 Dartmouth Road. We hope to hold future Coffees at other nearby locations like Borel Park, the green in front of Aragon High School and even St. John's Cemetary! Please share your ideas about where we can meet so that all of our Baywood neighborhood can easily join in. These Coffee Socials have turned into a regular neighborhood event since we started them in late 2021. It's such a great way to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. Starbucks coffee and Draegers treats make the walk worthwhile. Corn Hole has become a favorite game for kids at the Coffees. So many great dogs drop by that we wonder whether we really are holding Dog Socials in disguise:-) This is what neighborhoods should be about! Thanks to the generosity of our neighbors who have signed up as BNA members and payed membership dues so that we can put on events like our Baywood Coffee Socials. Everyone is always welcome, but joining our association at https://www.baywoodneighborhood.org/become-a-member-now make future events like this possible. Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 6th, 9am-11am, for the return of Baywood Coffee Socials at Bay Tree Park. Bring your dogs, kids, bikes, scooters and sense of adventure...we hope to see you there!
SAN MATEO CITY GOVERNMENT UPDATES
ATTEND SPECIAL MEETING THIS SATURDAY, MARCH 25, 10AM, ON WHAT YOU WANT IN OUR NEXT SAN MATEO CITY MANAGER
The City is getting ready to start looking for San Mateo’s next City Manager and you’re invited to help!
Join a community meeting THIS Saturday, March 25 from 10 a.m. to noon at the San Mateo Senior Center, 2645 Alameda de las Pulgas.
Tell the City what qualities you think our next City Manager should have. There also will be an online survey for anyone interested in sharing their thoughts.
The City Manager is one of the most critical roles in San Mateo. They are the person responsible for the day-to-day operations of the City...from storm response to managing our budget to ensuring our safety and keeping our parks and downtown vital. The City Manager oversees 10 departments and staff, from Public Works to the Police Department to the Library to Parks and Recreation. Our current City Manager, Drew Corbett, is set to retire in July, so the City is starting the recruitment process for this important position now.
Please make an effort to stop by the Beresford Senior Center this Saturday to share your opinions. Tell all your San Mateo neighbors about this meeting and bring a few with you. The person who is appointed our next San Mateo City Manager will have a direct impact on your life, so make sure your voice is heard!
Survey details will be posted soon so stay tuned.
WE'RE ALL GROWING GILLS BUT DON'T LET YOUR GUARD DOWN...STORMS AND WIND CONTINUE!
