Happy Friday!

One of our dedicated volunteers, Jim DeCecco, was awarded PG&E’s Solar Schools Inspirational Educator Award! This week, Jim was able to throw the first pitch at a San Francisco Giants game and get a special tour of the ballpark with students.

Congratulations to Jim, and thanks for all of his hard work bringing bicycle safety and awareness to his students at Oceano Elementary, and throughout SLO County!
