The Parks Department intends to replace the chain gate at Bol Park on Laguna near the crosswalk coming from Laguna Court with a large metal gate.  Eventually, they will replace all the chain gates including the one on Laguna near the creek and the one on Robles Ridge.

Less obtrusive alternatives like a arm gate or folding or collapsible bollards have been suggested, but we don’t think they will consider them.  Below are pictures of the proposed gate and examples of the other options mentioned.

If you have any suggestions or concerns about the city plan please contact the BPA Board and/or the Parks Department.  They are moving quickly and want to install the 1st gate by the end of August. The official announcement was published August 1st

The upcoming, long standing, bimonthly senior lunch will be on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at the Corner Bakery at 1:00 PM.

Corner Bakery is at 3375 El Camino Real on the corner of Fernando with plenty of parking space either in front or behind the restaurant.

The Corner Bakery is cafeteria style. Each of us pays for our own lunch selection at the counter. They will deliver our order to the table. The prices are modest, no tips involved, and we even get a senior discount. If you want to look at the menu in advance, go towww.cornerbakerycafe.com. There are printed menus available when we come in.

The sandwiches are rather large, so a Combo of half sandwich with salad or cup of soup is also good. Tossed salads are large and most of us have discovered that the smaller size, Cafe, is generous and just right.

Although not required, just show up is OK, it would be good to know number of us likely to arrange tables. Please reply to pklausm@mac.com or leave me a message at 650 303 6893 anytime.

For anyone needing a ride it can be arranged.

Hoping to see many there. The interactions are always fun and interesting. Peter K. Mueller
