oodside rocked on Saturday, May 7, starting with an early morning May Day Fun Run and pancake breakfast, followed by more traditions: a parade, Maypole dance, barbecue and carnival, all centered near and around the school. The theme of the 89th annual May Day Parade was Rockstar, but in reality it embraced music of all kinds as hundreds of people lined Woodside Road to watch participants walk, ride and roll by in everything from baby strollers to a two-story-tall

float filled with Brownies. The parade started at 10 a.m. in front of Woodside School with sheriff ’s deputies and then the grand marshals — Woodside music teachers Kara D’Ambrosio and Beth Dameron — waving to the crowd from an electric blue convertible on a sunny but temperate day. Dozens of groups participated in the parade, most of them throwing candy along the route, which led to Roberts Market and back. Woodside School alum and former See MAY DAY, page 19

TOWN OF PORTOLA VALLEY NOTICE OF A PUBLIC HEARING ON AMENDMENTS TO THE OPEN SPACE, RECREATION AND CONSERVATION ELEMENTS OF THE TOWN GENERAL PLAN AND APPROVAL OF PROPOSED NEGATIVE DECLARATION The Brownies’ two-story float is the largest in the parade’s history, according to Anne Schoebel, the master of ceremonies.

MAY DAY continued from page 17

parent Anne Schoebel emceed the parade again this year. Several Woodside-based groups involving horses added a hometown touch. Mounted Patrol members wore uniforms and carried flags, Woodside Vaulters showcased a handsome gray horse used in competition, and the National Center of Equine Facilitated Therapy led a miniature horse wearing a hot pink punk rocker wig. The Royal Court, made up of kindergarteners dressed in crowns and robes, rode in an antique fire truck with an entourage of students walking behind. The shiny red Engine 7 driven by the Woodside Fire Protection District firefighters looked brand new by comparison, whereas the Menlo Park Fire-

men’s Association red engine carrying the Woodside High School Alumni Association members looked to be somewhere in between. The Woodside High Marching Band played a number of tunes, with the school’s top awardwinning dance team performing right behind them. More music followed when Woodside School’s eighth-graders showed up in costume to sing two songs from the operetta, “Annie,” that they will be putting on June 2, 3 and 4. Eleven young girls twirled batons to taped music. Laura and Yolanda Russell, the mother/ daughter team that runs the Redwood City Twirlers, say they have participated in this parade at least 19 times. Their nephew/ grandson, Jeffrey Russell, played saxophone in the Woodside High Marching Band, just like his uncles did in past May Day

parades. The Los Trancos Woods Community Marching Band made its annual appearance with its usual cast of raggle-taggle colorful characters. Leader and trombone player Jim Harvey of Menlo Park said the group has paraded down Woodside Road probably 40 to 45 times. Farther back in the lineup, the Peninsula Volunteers featured The 515 Band playing rock-and-roll music on the back of a truck. Newcomers this year included a Rockstar energy drink truck accompanied by loud music and student dancers to help advertise the upcoming Woodside School Foundation’s Grand Auction on May 21, “Rockstar.” The Rockstar company is a community partner that has donated to the foundation. The same holds for Ferrari Maserati See MAY DAY, page 20

C O M M U N I T Y MAY DAY

Heather Green named ‘Citizen of Year’ Lu Hugdahl of Mountain View opened up a safe deposit box at a bank in Los Altos in November of 2006. Two years later she went to open her safe deposit box and was horrified to discover four or five rings and three necklaces missing. On a police report she estimated two of the rings were worth approximately $1,500.00, “one being a keepsake from a cherished friend who passed away”, as reported by the Los Altos Town Crier. Hugdahl was stunned.

A

t a ceremony held in the amphitheatre following the May Day Parade, Woodside School’s PTA recognized Heather Green as “Citizen of the Year” for all her volunteer efforts. Mrs. Green lives in Woodside and has two children at the school. For the past eight years she has run the recycling program on campus, collecting, sorting and cashing in bottles and cans to raise money for the music department. She has helped in classrooms, and supported the choir by sewing and cleaning its robes, and chaperoning field trips.

Silicon Valley, which had cars in the parade. Jeannette Heidrich came to watch with her husband and dog. “We’re local residents and we love coming to the parade, and have been for over 20 years since our children were younger.” Three generations of the Martin family of Woodside stood in one spot for the hour-long procession, clearly enjoying the other main source of entertainment — running into a stream of old friends. Standing with her parents, husband, and 8-month-old daughter, Woodside School alum Lisa Martin Murray beamed, “We’re just out to have fun outside.” Afterward, many people walked over to the school to see the thirdgraders perform a Maypole dance, and then stayed for food and games.

Serving on the Woodside School Foundation board for several years, she is currently Heather Green the secretary. Foundation president Sheree Shoch praised Ms. Green “for always doing behind-thescenes work; she’s an unsung hero.” The PTA presented Ms. Green with a rose tree, symbolic of her ecological volunteerism at the school. — Kate Daly

Locals capture honors at Tech Challenge Submitted by Shari Conrad, a parent volunteer for Encinal School

A

team of fifth-graders from Encinal School won second place for overall solution in a field of fifth- and six-graders at the 2011 Tech Challenge, held at the Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose on April 30. The challenge was to design and build a system to pick up plastic bottles from the ocean without harming fish and kelp. The three Encinal students worked for three months, creating a solution using materials such as a PVC pipe, vacuum tubing, duct tape, recycled cardboard, a reusable shopping bag and a handheld vacuum. “It was really cool to try out lots of ideas and then narrow in on the best ones,� said team member Alexander Takayama. Team member Aidan McKay added, “We learned a lot about the engineering design process.� On the day of the competition, the boys presented their solution and shared their design journal with a team of judges.

Support Local Business

In addition, they had five minutes to show their machine in action. Two minutes were allowed for setup, followed by three minutes to collect two 2-liter bottles and three bottle caps. The device met the design challenge and beat their best practice time by over 45 seconds. The challenge drew a record

number of participants: 263 teams and more than 1,200 students. “Three heads are better than one,� observed team member Kyle Conrad, “You can come up with a much better solution working with a team.� Visit thetech.org for more information. A
