THANK YOU Ray and Drew!! The summer fest, 4th of July parade, winter lights and community spirit are what brought our family to Menlo Park and brings us together as a community (sorely needed post pandemic and in divisive times). It was a huge loss to see them cancelled. Thank you very much for reviving these festive celebrations.

"Vice Mayor Jen Wolosin said that she would like to see the city eventually establish individual events for various faiths, instead of conglomerating them with preexisting religious celebrations."

Which reminds me. Long ago we rented a room at the Rec Center on behalf of friends to conduct a 'bris', a ritual circumcision. They were MP residents and heart surgeon at Stanford.
A good time was had by all. - Except one.
