WELCOME TO INFO MENLO Editor’s note Welcome to the 16th annual Info Menlo resource guide, published by The Almanac. Michelle Le

outdoors & recreation | 19

This book contains a treasure trove of useful information on everything from schools and parks to health clinics and senior services. This book provides contact information for public services such as police, libraries and fire departments for each of the four municipalities it covers — Atherton, Menlo Park, Portola Valley and Woodside. Sections include the arts, community services, outdoors and recreation, activities for children, schools and government services. Much more information is available online, at www.AlmanacNews.com under “Community resources.â€? Extensive information online is also available about our surrounding communities, including Stanford, Palo Alto and Mountain View. Our cover photo this year — Tour de Menlo participants in the 65mile course racing down CaĂąada Road with a view of Crystal Springs Reservoir — was shot by Almanac Photographer Michelle Le.
