July 28 --- "The Hidden Garden Steps: From Vision to Reality"
Although open only since December 2013, the Hidden Garden Steps (on 16th Avenue between Kirkham and Lawton) have joined the 16th Avenue Tiled Steps (on Moraga between 15th and 16th avenues) as a neighborhood landmark, attracting visitors from around the world. Learn from the organizers and artists how it happened, a four-year odyssey from vision to reality.
July 30 - Special Meeting: 6:30 PM Hall of Flowers/County Fair Building.
We pleased to welcome Assemblyman Phil Ting to a community forum co-sponsored by SHARP and Golden Gate Heights Neighborhood Association. This will not be a campaign event, but you are free to bring materials related to state legislation. The forum will last up to one hour, with approximately 15-20 minutes for Assem. Ting to give us a state update and speak on legislation, with the remainder devoted to questions. You may prepare some questions in advance.
August 25 - Ananda Joy Hart is a person you should meet. She is a lawyer who speaks like an ordinary person, except she isn't ordinary. She is the dynamic Managing Director of City Youth Now (cityyouthnow.org), an organization that has been helping kids in San Francisco's juvenile justice and foster care systems since 1950. CYN is a low-overhead, get-it-done organization based at Juvenile Hall on Woodside Avenue, just around the corner from our neighborhood. Ananda will describe some of CYN's many programs, with an emphasis on the impact they have had on particular kids. If you're inclined to think do-gooders don't do much good, you'll think differently after you've heard from Ananda.
