Celebrating the Chavez virtue: “Determination”
Culture & Season
Thank you to all the dog walkers who have been helping by keeping their dogs on a leash. The Memorial Solar Calendar site is located in the “on-leash” section of the park. This is particularly important when there are a lot of people, dogs and excitement in the center circle. It makes for a more orderly and enjoyable experience for all in attendance. You are some of our biggest supporters.
Those of you who have been there in the past know that we regularly review four virtues of Cesar Chavez which are metaphorically associated with the four cardinal directions. Tolerance is also one of those virtues. And it is a good one to be reminded of as we learn to be with one another harmoniously in a special space and moment.
