WELCOME TO INFO MOUNTAIN VIEW No one could ever complain that there’s nothing to do in Mountain View — unless they haven’t started perusing this year’s Info Mountain View.

outdoors & recreation | 14

Michelle Le

In one handy volume, both longtime residents and newcomers can find out quickly what’s going on in their community. Looking to sign up your child for scouts or soccer? Or perhaps a place to volunteer if you’ve got a passion for gardening? Or maybe just a place to learn how to samba? Whatever your age, organizations listed here offer activities to improve your mental or physical health. Some might want to work out at the Y, others just might prefer to drop in for a friendly senior lunch — or both. From the physical (think basketball and volleyball) to the cerebral (lecture series or a night at the theater), Info can inspire an adventure — or maybe just a new interest. To contact a member of the Mountain View City Council or for information on boards and commissions, turn to the Public Officials section.

If you’ve got content suggestions for next year, please email editor@ mv-voice.com. We appreciate your feedback.

In addition to the thousands of listings inside, you can visit www. mv-voice.com and find even more. Online you’ll also find information about our surrounding communities, including Palo Alto, Stanford and Menlo Park, as well as others in our region.
