On October 2, Kate and Jeff Haas at Echo Valley Farm hosted Puente’s Second Annual Afternoon Thank You Party to recognize Puente volunteers and supporters. Nearly 175 participants attended the event. Pescadero resident, Janet Murphy, received the 2nd Annual Ray A. Nelson Award in recognition of her decades long-work with farm and nursery workers and their families. Barbara Turner received a Volunteer Recognition Award in recognition of her decades long-work as an ESL Teacher and mentor.
Thanks to all of those that support Puente throughout the year. And special thanks to the local farmers and producers for providing local and delicious food for the meal: Special thanks to our local farmers and producers: Harley Farms, Del Sur Farm, Addwater Farm, Flygirl Farm, Farmhouse Frosting and Buttercup Cakes, Markegard Family Grass-Fed , Echo Valley Farm, and Glaze Catering.
