Thanks Marilyn. Thanks Jim. And thank you Tom, Lisa and Bruce. What a wonderful way to remember the walks that Marilyn and Jim took along the arroyo, and how much Marilyn loved walking, nature, parks, her family and her town. What a wonderful thing for you to do for Pleasanton. Thank you.

A spirited heart. I can remember Tom and Lisa in the same way during our school days. Thank you very much for your families generosity.

Thanks to the Kane Family for their generous donation to our city with this wonderful gift. The trail is beautiful and with it's connection to the Bernal Creek Trail, it's a great start to the master planned park we'll have down the road. I was fortunate to speak with Marilyn years ago about her ideas about the Bernal Community Park and what her family have done here is a wonderful tribute to her legacy. Thanks so much!

The Kane family is part of some of my best memories of Pleasanton. Mrs. Kane's spirit will continue to live and grow with us as we walk the beautiful trail and sit on the soon-to-be-dedicated benches.
