Granada Community Services District (GCSD) and Parks!

The Granada Community Services District (GCSD), formerly the Granada Sanitary District, gained park and recreation jurisdiction on October 1, 2014, for the unincorporated areas of El Granada, Miramar and Princeton (i.e. the “GCSD Community”) by a positive vote of 60% of the voters in the District. This reorganization allows the district to provide parks and recreation services in addition to the sewer, solid waste and recycling services it currently provides to over 2,500 residences and businesses in the District as well as the northern portion of the City of Half Moon Bay.

The parks and recreation function is funded by utilizing a portion of GCSD’s share of property tax revenues, not from sewer charges. GCSD’s goal is to provide parks and recreation services that benefit the GCSD community, with a commitment to robust neighborhood outreach on new projects.

Bedtime Stories ~ How the Grinch Stole Christmas

PODCAST. Ho! Ho! Ho! How the Grinch Stole Christmas was written by Dr. Seuss and published in 1957 by Random House. It’s read by Michelle Dragony with Grinchliest Gusto.  Listen from any device!

If you like this story you may want to go buy the book at a local coastal bookstore!

How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is a children’s story by Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel written in rhymed verse with illustrations by the author. It follows the Grinch, a grouchy, solitary creature who attempts to put an end to Christmas by stealing Christmas-themed items from the homes of the nearby town Whoville on Christmas Eve. Despite his efforts, Whoville’s inhabitants still celebrate the holiday, so the Grinch returns everything that he stole and is the guest of honor at the Whos’ Christmas dinner. ~ Wikipedia
