On Friday, May 19, 2017,Mary Geong and her intrepid band of volunteers successfully got 180 Oakland public school transitional kindergarten and kindergarten students off their buses, into Children’s Fairyland, fed, and back on the buses. No children were lost or went hungry!  As the pictures attest, the order of the day was smiles all around.

Great thanks go to Fairyland Executive Director (and fellow Rotarian) CJ Hirschfield and her staff, especially Vicky and Cindy. Thanks also goes to Philanthropic Ventures Foundation, whichprovided significant financial support for the bus transportation. We could not do these field trips without their generous support.

Anyone who would like a day in the sun watching happy children should consider volunteering on a KinderPrep field trip nextyear. KinderPrep also provides many other opportunities to volunteer and support these wonderful children.  Contact Peter Sherris at psherris@mac.com.
