Drought Awareness Tour
Bom Dia to Upper Noe
Festivities run from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. but Bom Dia Market is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and 10% of all purchases made all day go to support Upper Noe Recreation Center.
“Noe Valley Recreation Center is the heart of our community” says owner Madeline Theis. “We love seeing families on their way there, especially on Soccer Tots game days! We put together a special Soccer Tots snack pack for your athletes' next game to get them fueled and ready to play!”
Bom Dia means “Good day” in Portuguese. Come out, support new neighbors and old, and enjoy some delicious treats on Sunday, April 26. What a good day that will be.
Drought Awareness Tour
Currently, our lush garden of natives is in its element. The drought seems to affect them not a bit. Ladybug leader Joan Lionberger commented, "The Native Plant Garden is alive with butterflies and honey bees and flowers.” More than a half dozen species are in bloom from bright orange California Poppies to red Hummingbird Sage to lacey Sonoma White Yarrow. Come out and see this colorful collection along the Sanchez Street side of the building.
The tour is in conjunction with the quarterly Ladybug Gardener workday, from 9 a.m. to noon. Volunteers are appreciated. Says Joan, “We still have the Blue Bird Garden and the Native Plant Garden to work on. Just a little work and our park looks inviting to the kids, big and small. It is a great way to get to know the park and your neighbors.
So, play on!
