San Carlos: A City of Volunteerism
San Carlos has many wonderful things about it. It’s difficult to point to a single place or event that sums up the San Carlos experience. In my humble opinion, it is the residents who allow San Carlos to shine. I have always said that San Carlos stands out because of the thousands of citizens who volunteer their time and ingenuity each year. Hometown Days, Concert in the Park, Christmas Tree Lane, the Art & Wine Festival, Walk-A-Jog, San Carlos Educational Foundation, the Parks and Recreation Foundation and countless other events and organizations do not just suddenly happen. They are the product of recognizing a need, acting on it, and bringing it to life.
For me, San Carlos Treasure Hunters was a worthwhile contribution. We’ve had 850 families go through SCTH over the last five years and are looking forward to this year’s event in October. Our first event did not get off the ground easily. We initially tried to get it through the Parks and Recreation Department, but the City of San Carlos was unable to help us due to a variety of legal road blocks. We tried to get help from other community organizations, which ultimately proved to be difficult as well. At the end of the day, I quickly realized that the only way SCTH was going to get off the ground was to simply do it myself….and that’s exactly what ended up happening.
