The next meeting of the San Carlos Area Council (SCAC) will be held on Wednesday, May 2, at 6 p.m. in the San Carlos Branch Library 7265 Jackson Drive.
Our guest speaker will be Darnisha Hunter from Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s office. If you have questions you would like her to address, please email them to me no later than April 26.
To find out if street work is scheduled for your area, visit streets.sandiego.gov. Our city has made many miles of street repairs in the past fiscal year, but why does it seem those repairs need to be repaired all too soon afterward?
Be a permanent part of Patriot history and support our school’s new stadium with the Patrick Henry High School Stadium Brick Project, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Grantville-Allied Gardens. Patrick Henry High School (PHHS) is completing brick walkways in the new stadium areas. Did you or a family member attend PHHS? This is a wonderful way to pay tribute to them and the school. For more information, please contact John at PatrickHenryBricks@alliedgardenskiwanis.org.
Prom is in June and I am pleased that due to the great outpouring of donations in the past few years, there are dresses and men’s clothing available. Also, PHHS has a thrift store on campus and they are looking for everyday school clothes, supplies and personal care products to be donated. If you would like to contact me for a list of what is acceptable school clothes (colors, no logos other than sports, etc.) I will be happy to email the list to you.
