Take the LEAP, and get ENGAGED

According to Irish tradition, women may only propose marriage once every four years, on February 29th. But since the purpose of this blog is to inform you of timely information and make known to you any upcoming events taking place in the community, here are some other ways you can get engaged:

The public is welcome to attend the Community Emergency Volunteer’s (CEVs) quarterly meeting, taking place this coming Tuesday between 7:00 – 9:00 PM at the Brisbane Fire Station – 3445 Bayshore Blvd. Come and hear about the threat of wildland fire to Brisbane, from the perspectives of Battalion Chief Kevin Park, of North County Fire Authority, Capt. Scott Ferguson, and your fellow Brisbane resident and CEV (for the past 18 years and going strong) Lois Tiano, who experienced the Southern California fires firsthand while on vacation in San Diego. See how her training allowed her to feel equipped and ready to volunteer her help in a potentially dangerous situation. For more info, contact Elizabeth at

City Council meetings are another way for you to get engaged, as well be informed of the things going on in your community. Amongst the items on this Monday’s (3/3) meeting agenda are: the proposed tree replacements and enhancements in the Community Park and the area commonly referred to as Schroeder Field (intersection of Old County/Bayshore/Tunnel Ave.) and a presentation of the drawing set for the proposed Sierra Point Biotech Project.

Civic engagement is a choice…so make it YOURS today and get engaged!
