#THANKFUL FAIR OAKS I am thankful for my family and the ability to serve the Fair Oaks Community each and every day.

Especially during this year's COVID crisis, my husband and I feel so grateful that we live in Fair Oaks. Within minutes of walking out of our front door, we can be in nature. On any given day, we can decompress by watching not only the river flowing, fish jumping, turtles basking on a sunny log, deer grazing, turkeys wandering, buzzards warming their wings in the tree tops, and maybe even catching a glimpse of a lone coyote. It's also a perfect way to visit (from a distance!) with neighbors along the way!

CHELSEY ADAMS - FORPD STAFF My name is Alisha Koehn and I am the teacher for the FORPD preschool program. Through all the changes we saw this year, as a community and as individuals, I am beyond grateful that I was able to continue doing what I love. Being able to provide the children of our community a safe place to learn, play, and grow in a time of such uncertainty is more than I could ever hope for. I am thankful for the parents that trust us, our brave participants, and our team that continue to make this all possible.

LINDA MEEKER The UCCE Master Gardeners of Sacramento County are thankful for community members who enjoy tending to their gardens and landscapes. Our annual Harvest Day educational event was transformed from an all-day event at the Fair Oaks Horticulture Center into a ‘forever’ virtual experience. We are thankful for the opportunity to create 29 short videos about topics of interest to the Fair Oaks community. Please pour a cup of warm cider, sit back, and enjoy a virtual Harvest Day experience. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClm9vPOH__UWg0 Lwlp5vVNQ/videos. Thank you, Fair Oaks for inspiring us to have fun creating educational videos.

ALISHA KOEHN FORPD PRESCHOOL TEACHER Fair Oaks recreation programs have connected me with some of the most special people in my life and led to some of the most meaningful relationships I have today. I am so thankful to be a part of this community!

SCOTT HACKMAN FOLAX PRESIDENT

Fair Oaks Lacrosse is very thankful for our partnership with the Fair Oaks Recreation & Park District because it is the main reason we can bring lacrosse to the youth locally. We are also thankful for the flexibility and understanding from our parents during this COVID-19 pandemic.

The health of my friends and family, and the bonding that has brought us closer. Grateful for the support and encouragement of my family and extra time to spend with them. The simple joys of cooking, being outdoors and hanging with my animals. They will definitely be in shock when I go back to working in the office. Poor things! :) I am grateful for my amazing Rec team and our entire staff, their resilient spirit and creativity amaze and inspire me. I realize every day that I am lucky to have a talented, positive, forward-thinking team working on behalf of the District. I'm thankful to be employed and work in a profession that is still challenging me daily and helping me to grow and learn. I'm thankful for my peers and the support and encouragement they provide daily!

This year I am thankful for the things we normally take for granted. Time with family, health, food, shelter, ability to work, and just the gift of life. It’s easy to look at this year as one of the worst in a long time, and while there have been a lot of downs this year has brought all of us, we can all agree that we all have the power to come back stronger. We all have the ability to come together for the greater good. This incredible community and many others all around the world are so valuable! For that, I am truly thankful!

MARY CATTOLICA FORPD STAFF The Fair Oaks Racquet Club members during 2020 have been very thankful to the Fair Oaks Recreation & Park District for opening the Miller park tennis courts. Once COVID-19 rules allowed the courts to be available, not only the public but the members of FORC have enjoyed some social time and exercise through tennis. Attach is a group photo of the Fair Oaks Racquet Club members taken February 2019--when reservations were allowed. One of the many times before COVID-19 the club members enjoyed the use of the tennis courts....social gathering along with a robust round of tennis.

TERRIE O'DONNELL FORC COMMUNICATOR I am thankful for family and friends and a job that allows me to serve the community.

KATY COSS - FORPD RECREATION SUPERINTENDENT Thankful for the voters of Fair Oaks and their support of the Fair Oaks Recreation and Park District. A major project that was completed this year using Measure J funds was the replacement of the playground surface areas at Phoenix Park, Little Phoenix, Fair Oaks Park, Miller Park, Montview Park and Fair Oaks Preschool. Thanks for keeping kids safe while they play!

I am thankful that the people I care about have all been able to stay safe and healthy during this pandemic.

DAVE KNIGHTON - FORPD STAFF I am thankful for adventure, planned and unplanned, near and far. Thankful for time, resiliency, laughter, and life lessons. Thankful for family and those considered "family."

I am so grateful that my husband and I and our family members are still healthy. We still have a roof over our head and food on the table. Our “COVID Club” made up of a few neighbors who gather on a driveway, 6 feet apart, every couple of weeks has made it all bearable. I’m thankful for Zoom and FaceTime that allow me to see and talk to my daughter and granddaughters and to a group of high school friends who have become so close as we support one another through these challenging times

JEANNE KELLER

SABRINA BERNARDO - FORPD STAFF Meristem is grateful for our community connections to local businesses and organizations that work with young adults on the autism spectrum. For example, since Meristem's humble beginnings in Fair Oaks six years ago, the Fair Oaks Recreation & Park District has been a vital partner. Countless members of the FOPD team have been connected to us through a wide range of projects -- each time helping our students build their confidence, work skills and community connection. We are grateful to our friends at the FOPD and organizations like them as we celebrate the growth of our students who've found their strength and courage in the community projects we've shared. We are grateful for our communtiy. www.meristem.pro

We are so thankful for the FORPD Preschool Program. Miss Alisha, Miss Shama, Miss Chelsea and Miss Delaney are amazing teachers and we are so thankful for their hard work and love they have for the children and the program. In the wake of a tumultuous year, the program has provided an educational outlet and a sense of normalcy that has been much needed in our household. My oldest son went through the program a couple years ago and we were just as impressed then as we are now. Thank you so much to the staff of the FORPD Preschool program for providing an educational and fun program for our youth. We are so very thankful for you all!

JENNIFER BLEATH I am thankful for a positive network of family, friends, and co-workers. Through the challenging times of 2020, I have formed a stronger bond with those close to me and have become more appreciative of the relationships in my life.
