Nancy Macy of the Redwood Mountain Faire presented President Linda with the proceeds of being one of the top Grant Groups providing volunteers at the Faire.  Overall parking management was added this year on top of the Internal Traffic Control that we have provided over the past few years and this yielded a huge boost to our fund raising for the year.
