PAHS staff and board members joined a large group of our dedicated volunteers the evening of Wednesday, May 31, at the Garden Court Hotel in downtown Palo Alto to honor these volunteers’ contributions to our organization. Volunteers who have participated in PAHS’ educational programs as well as at PAHS events were celebrated lavishly at the hotel’s beautiful central patio. Also in attendance were some of PAHS’ canine volunteers—service dogs who have visited educational sites.
The fare included soft drinks, wonderful vegan treats, and five kinds of vegan cakes. The conversation flowed, and everyone had a chance to pet the canine attendees. PAHS thanks the staff of the Garden Court, in particular Jeffery Phillips and Jesse Bresnahan who planned and executed this wonderful gathering, and all our fantastic volunteers, without whom our programs and events would be so much poorer.
