Housing crunch effects pets
From State Assemblyman Brian Maienschein’s bulletin: Assembly Bill 1137 “State Financed Housing Companion Animals.” The high cost of housing in California affects families in a wide variety of negative ways. One lesser known but growing impact is to put families in a position of having to choose between keeping their household pet and keeping a roof over their head. Financial evictions have increased, and there is a lack of pet-friendly housing options.
Honoring Jay Wilson
Jay Wilson Day is Sept. 19 and at 10 a.m. in the Council Chambers (12th floor of the City Administration Building located at 202 C St.), Jay will receive a proclamation stating this is his day!
Jay has been a moving force in nearly all of the activities in the Navajo area for a few decades — he is the go-to guy; he is one of a kind and deserves special recognition. Never wanting to out-shine anyone else, he is humble but you will recognize him wherever anything special is happening in our area. He is a supernova!
San Carlos Garden
Yoga is coming to the garden. The garden will be hosting a free Sunset Yoga in the Garden series every Sunday throughout October. Participants can enjoy guided yoga from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
On Saturday, Nov. 11 from 1 to 3 p.m. the garden will have a Growing Connection Festival of Fun. This event is aimed to educate the community about the connection between food, health and nature. Research indicates that early positive experiences with food leads to healthier eating habits.
San Carlos Garden Open House is held each Saturday from 9 to 11 a.m. All visitors are welcome. Plots are still available to lease. Stop by our SCAC plot at C-2 where, thanks to Luciano Emanuele, our garden is thriving.
