From the messy desk of Amanda Eichstaedt…
Plum trees are busting out with pink and white blossoms all over West Marin. If you keep your eyes peeled you will also see daffodils, fritillaria, and LOTS of weeds growing after the ample rain. Regardless of how you feel about daylight saving, we did spring forward early Sunday morning. Daylight Saving has an interesting history, and there are folks lobbying to end it. I don’t have strong feelings about changing the clocks, do you?
Thank you to the growing list of local folks who have chosen to donate their vehicles to support KWMR! Within the past two months six vehicles have been donated. If you are interested in learning more about this program, click HERE. Car donations are a great way to remove an old clunker from your life and support local radio!
Congratulations to Socorro Romo! Assemblyman Marc Levine has named her North Bay Woman of the Year! So deserved. Also, congratulations to Martha Proctor, and Rebecca and Carlos Porrata who were honored on Saturday at the Dance Palace Community Awards ceremony for their dedication to West Marin.
