This time of year there are many ways to help and care for those less fortunate than we are. The San Francisco Rescue Mission has dropped off a food collection barrel in the office.
Canned foods, cereals, rice, pastas and paper goods would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

The Running Gags Season Finale
Our final cross-country race was yesterday and all of our runners did a great job! It should be noted that Alexander Kiss and Cate Kreutzen each finished third in their races. Way to go Cate, Alexander and all Running Gags!
It was a great cross-country season. The kids really worked hard, got fitter and ran better by the end of the year! It was my pleasure being their coach! They were a great group! Let’s do it again next year.
