Hundreds Clean Up Bay Under Summer Skies

Bay

Apologies to those who are suffering through frigid temperatures back east, but the Martin Luther King Day of Service event I participated in yesterday in Richmond, California, with my girlfriend Nanette and her kids Lee and Elena, could not have been in a more idyllic setting. The skies were achingly blue, the sun warm and shimmering on the bay, the backdrop of the Bay Bridge and the San Francisco skyline spectacular, and the several hundred volunteers who picked up trash, chopped down clumps of invasive fennel and pampas grass, and planted native seedlings all in high spirits.

"Our new president asked us to serve," said one volunteer, "and here we are!"
