Pacifica Safe After Fire

Friday, July 19, 2013

We at Pacifica are incredibly grateful for the fire fighters who worked tirelessly this afternoon to contain the fire on our property and surrounding area. Our structures are all safe with no damage because of your efforts. We can not thank you enough. You are true heroes.

Bill Kennedy 
Programs like The Caterpillar truly depend on the generously donated time and talents of our volunteers. Everyone at Pacifica Garden and The Caterpillar would like to thank one of our greatest helpers, Bill Kennedy, who passed away last month. Bill was instrumental in making The Caterpillar what it is today. He built tons of circuit boards used in the learning stations, all of the wooden shelves and benches in the new Caterpillar trailer, many bird and bat cages, and countless other projects. We would like to thank Bill for all he did to make science education available to our schools and offer our thoughts and prayers to his family.
