On June 24, 2009, at the meeting of the County Board of Supervisors awarded us a plaque honoring our neighborhood for our recent road cleanup. Clarence accepted the plaque and expressed our support of the County and gratitude for their help with disposing of the trash.
The plaque will be at Clarences's house. Here is what the fine print that you cannot read says:
WHEREAS, the Bohlman Road Neighborhood Association represents the homeowners and residents on Bohlman Road in the Santa Cruz Mountains above Saratoga; and
WHEREAS, the Association secured two fourteen-foot dump trailers and other equipment and supplies at its own expense; and
