A recent Foster City Patch article covered the exciting news.  Below is a quote from Larry Ivich, General Manager of Hillsdale Shopping Center –

“Hillsdale Shopping Center plans to upgrade our facilities so that we can continue to offer the best amenities and the most vibrant shopping experience on the Mid-Peninsula,” …

“The renovation of the existing shopping center will provide a more transit friendly facility that will connect to Bay Meadows and the new Caltrain station,” he said.

Mark your calendars for Thursday, March 21 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm as the San Francisco Giants’ World Series Trophy comes to San Mateo.  Fans can take pictures and have the opportunity to have their picture taken with both the 2012 and 2010 trophies.  The tour helps fans have access to the viewing of the trophies as well as benefiting the Junior Giants baseball program.

Location: San Mateo City Hall, 330 W. 20th Ave. San Mateo

The official site of the SF Giants sums up the tour quite well:

This will be the second public trophy tour held in the past three years and will feature both the 2012 and 2010 trophies. The focus of the San Francisco World Championship Trophy Tour presented by Bank of America is to share the trophies with Giants fans in Junior Giants communities throughout northern California.

“It was really important to us this time, given a second opportunity, to create a trophy tour which allowed us to connect with our fans as well as the more than 20,000 kids who participate in our Junior Giants baseball program,” said Larry Baer, Giants president and chief operating officer.

The organization is working in partnership with their Junior Giants Leagues throughout northern California to create public viewing opportunities in the following cities throughout the months of January, February and March. Fans will have the chance to both have their photo taken with the trophies and support their local Junior Giants Baseball League.

Sounds like fun for all you sports fans out there!

Spring Forward and Welcome Spring to Foster City

March 9th, 2013

 

newstart04

Spring is in the air; the temperature is warming up and nature is starting to wake up from its winter slumber. Tomorrow morning is the beginning of Daylight Saving Time and you know the drill: Spring forward, fall back.

Early Sunday morning, we will lose an hour when daylight saving time 2013 begins at 2:00 a.m., which immediately becomes 3:00 a.m..  But for those of you about to mourn the loss of that precious hour of sleep, take comfort in the fact that longer and warmer days are just around the corner.

Background. Daylight Saving Time was designed to give more light during summertime hours, and is widely seen as an energy savings measure. Started in 1918, the concept of Daylight Saving Time actually has a much older origin, with the original idea being credited to Benjamin Franklin.

Spring and Easter will be here soon so we have compiled a short list to make your housing decorating fun & easy.
