Uploaded: Jul 3, 2013
As trees are trimmed in my neighborhood, I wonder what is going on in City Hall and at the School District Office.

Support local journalism.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 26 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $7 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
