24th Annual Festival of Lights

Printer-friendly version

The rain coming down outside couldn't quell the joyful singing that was coming from inside the Community Center last Sunday.  For the 24th year in a row now, on the first Sunday in December, the City has celebrated what's known as the "Festival of Lights".  This event traditionally takes place at the Community Park, but for the last couple years, the event's been moved to the Community Center (located below the Library) due to rain.  Fortunately, the Library is close enough to the Community Park that there's not a huge damper put on the rest of the night's festivities.  

BDW Adult Voice led off the night with Jerry Sully's penned, "Edgar Renteria", a tribute to the SF Giants, sung to the tune of "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer".  Then, Distric Music Teacher Rob Johnson led the BES Choir in a medley of Christmas carols. 

Thomas Madrigal finished off with "I'll Be Home for Christmas" and then led the crowd in "Rockin' Round the Christmas Tree" -- he sure got them singing!

Much mingling, merrymaking, and munching took place inside the warmth of the Community Center, where Santa paid a visit...with at least 3 look-alikes standing by.

Thank you to Russ Carmick, Recreation Supervisor, who helped coordinate the event with the oversight of the Parks, Beaches, and Recreation Commissioners and the Community members whose participation gave the event a personal, Brisbane, touch!  And thank you also to the Public Works department who helped string lights on the tree earlier in the week!  It sure does sparkle...and lends more meaning to Brisbane being, truly, the City of Stars.

Council Appoints A New Mayor

Printer-friendly version

On Monday, December 6, 2010, the City Council shifted gears.  More specifically, they appointed Cyril G. "Cy" Bologoff as Mayor for November 2010 - November 2011 and Steven W. Waldo as Mayor Pro Tem.  Clarke Conway, who served as Mayor in 2010 was recognized for his accomplishments in the past year, among them supporting the designation of the Brisbane Roundhouse as a national resource, joining in on the Rebuilding Together Peninsula Project, and helping oversee the design and launch of the City's new website, which you are presently surfing on.

Pictured below are Cy presenting Clarke with a proclamation and Sheri Spediacci, City Clerk, swearing in Cy and Steve as they begin service in their new positions.

We thank former Mayor Conway for his service to the Brisbane Community and the way he skillfully facilitated the City Council meetings this past year, and look forward to the new year with Mayor Bologoff at the helm.
