Block Action Team (BAT) #35 held a Sunday afternoon Block Party on their cul-de-sac. Funded by a City of Los Altos Community and Emergency Preparedness Grant, BAT Co-Leaders Nicole Frees, Celia Chue, and Ed Yu handed out gas valve shut off wrenches, enjoyed refreshments with 20+ neighbors, and announced the neighborhood representative they will send to Los Altos CERT Training in October.
Los Altos Community Foundation BAT Program Manager Nadja Jackson attended the block party to thank the leaders for their volunteer service and encourage continued neighborhood involvement in staying connected, caring for each other, and preparing for the future.
“We have a whole series of block parties planned for this spring and summer, each with their own themes,” explained BAT Co-leader Ed Yu. “Nicole, Celia and I have been having fun doing the planning, and the newer families were really excited for the opportunity to meet their neighbors!”
Since 2013, we’ve trained nearly 300 BAT Leaders trained and there are over 2,500 Los Altos households who are part of Block Action Teams!
