If you were not one of the 3,000 plus people that joined us for the first Pops in the Park concert June 2nd at McKinley Park, you missed a perfect Sacramento evening in one of our beautiful East Sac parks, with the funk sounds of The Nibblers. Buck Busfield and Bill Blake did an outstanding job as emcees and Claudia Bordin of the McKinley East Sacramento Neighborhood Association (MENA) presented the MENA Hero Award to Cecily Hastings and Lisa Schmidt of Friends of East Sacramento (FOES) for their dedication to the neighborhood and particularly efforts to save Clunie Community Center from closing.
