We are well into Spring here in San Leandro already despite the gopher’s seeing his shadow this year. Vibrant colored flowers are blooming everywhere. St. Patrick’s Day and Easter are just around the corner. And it’s that time of year already to remind everyone that Daylight Savings Time starts on the morning of Sunday, March 11th at 2:00 am.
Clocks go ahead by one hour and unfortunately we all lose an hour of precious sleep. Spring makes us think of outdoor activities and we’ve got a couple sweet recommendations for you. Get an early start on the 2018 East Bay Trails Challenge and get yourself a commemorative pin if you complete them all by December 31st! Chabot Park has reopened after an 18-month closure. Definitely a neighborhood favorite. Spring means cleaning so join your friends and neighbors for a friendly Community Cleanup Day in San Leandro on Saturday, March 11th. The exercise will do you good.
