Get an ‘Everyone Welcome’ Lawn Sign

The holidays are a wonderful and heartwarming time of year to reconnect to what truly matters – love, togetherness, friends, family, community and giving. In the true spirit of the holidays, the Santa Clara Community Organization is giving away ‘Everyone Welcome’ lawn signs. We feel that having these signs sprinkled throughout our Santa Clara community will foster and sustain a neighborhood environment that is diverse, inclusive, safe, and welcoming.

If you would like to get a sign and visibly welcome all, please email the Social Justice Committee at sjc@santaclaracommunity.org .

Wendover work party is a big success

The sun brought out an energetic group of volunteers to spread and rake chips throughout the park. By the end of the party, several muddy sections of path were covered with fresh chips and some new paths were created.

Thank you to all who participated. If you are not familiar with this somewhat hidden park, you should visit it at 4655 Wendover St, 97404 Map/Directi0ns .
