Light Up the Shores 2014

Dress up your home and yard with lights, Santa, reindeer, snowmen and win prizes! Winning homes will be featured in The PILOT and on the web. If you would like to submit your holiday decorations for consideration and publication in The PILOT, we are asking that you take a photo of your home, apartment, condominium or townhome, and submit it to our Board of Directors for their official “judging” process. Of course, it’s best that this be a “nighttime” photo so we can see how brilliantly the lights and decorations shine in the darkness.

Submission Deadline:
December 17

Each photo should be emailed to “” with the resident’s name and street address, including apartment or unit number if applicable.

Your photos must be submitted no later than the end of the day Wednesday, December 17th, as our elves will be judging all applicants on Thursday, December 18. Sorry, no late applicants can be considered, as this is a lengthy process !

Halloween Walk 2014

Bring your kids in their Halloween costumes to Marlin Park on Saturday October 25th, 1:00 PM sharp for a spooky good time in the park.

Trick Or Treat

We’ll have treats for the little ones, so bring a goodie bag/bucket!

** Event Ends at 2:00pm **

And PARENTS, don’t forget your cameras for photo opportunities with the Good Witch.

Our local RWC Police will also be available to provide voluntary FINGERPRINTING for children of parents who might wish to have this record for identification. Because a child’s appearance can change in a short time, fingerprinting can be the best way to identify a lost child.

RSCA holds this event each year for Shores children elementary school age and under.

CAN YOU HELP?

The Redwood Shores Community Association needs some adult help for the Halloween Parade. The number of children in the Shores has increased dramatically in the past few years (really good schools and a great quality of life for families!) We could use a few more adult (young or old) “helpers” to look over the large numbers of children at this event. If you have the time and would help us on Saturday, October 25 from 12:00-2:00pm, email .

It’s easy work and lots of fun to watch our children enjoy their “dress-up” time in Marlin Park. Your help will be greatly appreciated!

Redwood Shores Levee Cleanup 2014

At the end of each August, your Redwood Shores Community Association has sponsored our Annual Levee Cleanup. To benefit the environment, the community bonds together to help beautify the nearly seven miles (yes, 7 miles!) of levee surrounding the Shores. And we need all the help we can get to cover those seven miles..

Date: Saturday, August 23
Time: 8:00 am til noon
Place: Mariner Park, Redwood Shores, CA 94065
(click here for a MAP)
Starters: Coffee, juice and bagels served at 8:00 am
Lunch: Barbeque for all hands at 11:30am
Crews: Qualifies as 4-hours of Community Service

The Shores Levee Cleanup is a fun community event. Residents and admirers of our beautiful Shores are all invited to join us in this very worthy annual event to help keep this neighborhood and wetland area clean. Volunteers will be assembled into teams and assigned cleanup areas.  Kids and parents, adults and seniors are all welcome and encouraged to get involved.  Family work groups handle their areas at their own pace; all help to keep these bountiful nature trails debris-free.

This is a great opportunity for Redwood City residents (and their friends) to enjoy a beautiful summer morning while experiencing a variety of birds and other wildlife. Volunteer and enjoy the splendor of our seven miles of shoreline, including incredible views of the bay.

We hope you will join us again this year; please bring gloves and wear good walking shoes… all pickup tools and trash bags will be provided.  Take pride in enhancing this important Redwood City resource, and join us Saturday, August 23, starting at 8am.

Lunch is on us! As a small ‘thank you’ to our volunteers, a barbeque is sponsored by our friends at the San Mateo Credit Union for all hands.  Barbeque will be served at 11:30am in Mariner Park.

  

Recology Systems Inc. provides the trash collection containers, and their assistance is gratefully acknowledged. Each year large amounts of trash are picked from the Redwood Shores Levee environment by our volunteers and removed by Recology Systems free of charge.  Every piece of trash that is eliminated is important!

For more information about this event, please contact Nina Boire at  .  

To acknowledge his faithful community service and leadership, this year’s cleanup is again dedicated to Pete Hughes. Pete organized this valued community initiative from the beginning and gained the continuing support of civic, business, and community leaders who support this public effort with their time and resources.
