Congrats To Farallone View Elementary School

Congrats To Farallone View Elementary School

A big CONGRATULATIONS goes out to my friends at Farallone View for being the FIRST benefactor of a program whereby I donate $1,000 to the LOCAL non-profit organization of the buyer or seller's choice (for every real estate transaction I participate in).

Last week I headed out to Farallone View Elementary School to give them the $1,000 check. A welcome crew consisting of Sara Bunkin (PTO Co-President), Katie Aschero (PTO Co-President), Lisa Phelan (Director of Communications), Christina Frediani (FV parent and active PTO member), and Cesar Gaytan (School Principal) came out to meet me. To my astonishment, they had put together a thoughtful care package for me containing tons of Farallone View swag and handwritten thank you cards from the kids!! The Beanie and Sweatshirt couldn't have come at a better time given this rain we've been having. Thank Guys!

It had been a few yeas since I had spent any meaningful time at FImage titlearallone View so I took the opportunity to walk around and snap a few photos. This stroll turned out to be a nostalgic, almost melancholic experience. My childhood and adolescence were rooted in Montara but these memories were becoming distant in some way. I walked quietly through the school and made my way to the northern end of LeConte Ave. As I looked down over the playground with the white sands of Montara beach and the beautiful Pacific Ocean in the background I was reminded that "this" is where I came from. I know that is a strange thing to say because I never really left the coast. I live in El Granada now which is still "here"  but Montara is different in a very special way. Those that live or have lived there know what I am talking about. Montara, cradled by a majestic mountain and flanked on 3 sides by miles of open space and an entire ocean is the "jewel of the coast".  Image titleIts only public school, Farallone View Elementary, is quite possibly the best neighborhood school you could ask for!  

I would like to extend a big thank you to the Farallone View children, Staff, and PTO for their warm hospitality. Let this be the first of many $1,000 checks they receive as a result of our program.
