Eggstravaganza 2012 - A Main Event
Sunday April 1st, 2012 dawned bright and sunny,much to the relief of the RSCA Board of Directorswho, for the first time in memory, had to postpone theAnnual Eggstravaganza Egg Hunt for one day due to aheavy spring rainstorm. The grass at Marlin Park wasstill wet, but that did not deter the hundreds of childrenand their parents who anxiously awaited the arrivalof the Easter Bunny. Our RSCA Eggstravaganza“Egg Marshall” – Sue Nix – was able to hold the littleones at bay until a moment before the clock struck 1:00 pm and thehunt was off! Areas of Marlin Park were cordoned off for various agegroups, and children scampered everywhere, looking for those elusivegolden eggs, which meant a special prize for the finders. Many thanksto our RSCA Board Members for their help, as well as to the RWC PDCadets who aided in our fingerprinting booth, and our local Station 20RWC FD who brought a big red fire engine. And of course, to theEaster Bunny, wet paws and all, for entertaining children and adults of all ages.

Shores History Now at the Library 
For our 40th Anniversary Celebration back in 2010, RSCA puttogether a “history” of Redwood Shores in many pictures andnewspaper articles dating back to the 1960s.That history will again be on display for the next few monthsat the Redwood Shores Library. If you missed it in 2010,you should take some time to visit the library and browse throughthe history of our special community.Originally “unwanted and unloved”, the Shores is now one of the brightest & best places to live and work on the Peninsula!See how it happened and the work that went into transformingthis wonderful community we call home.
HELP (always) WANTED 
RSCA is entirely a volunteer organization. The list of thingsthat we “could” be doing – things we would like to be doing –continues to grow.If you have a specific interest in something in the Shores thatYOU would like to see improved, and you have 1-2 hours a weekto work with RSCA, let’s talk about how we might work together.RSCA can provide support and a platform for action that youmight not have as a single individual. You’ll also meet a lot of nicepeople who share your interest in keep the Shores a GREAT placeto live and raise a family.
No Feeding” Signs Going Up 
Shown below is a draft of the City’s new “no feeding” signs thatwill be going up in our parks and public areas. Shortly after that,you should be seeing similar signs on many private propertiesaround the Shores.Just a reminder that under California law, feeding wildlife is apunishable offense without regard to whether you are on public orprivate property.And feeding by humans can cause unintended harm to ANY of our local or migratory waterfowl or wildlife. Feeding by humanscan lead to under-nourishment by replacing the natural diet andlead to the spread of disease among the very animals you think youare “helping”. Feeding by humans can change natural behaviorand migratory patterns and lead to local overcrowding. Feedingby humans can lead to more aggressive behavior toward adultsAND children.PLEASE…let’s do our part to keep wildlife wild!
