City Officials Honor BPWA’ s Twenty Years of Dedicated Stewardship of Berkeley’s Paths
To mark our 20th anniversary, Berkeley mayor Jess Arreguin and the City Council honored BPWA on May 1, 2018  with an official proclamation in praise of our two decades of public service. Council Members Susan Wengraf and Sophie Hahn read the beautifully worded text aloud into the record.  
   Describing the city’s paths as “living reminders of Berkeley’s early days,” the proclamation declares that “Berkeley’s magical pathways offer leafy garden corridors, stairways, and greatly appreciated shortcuts … [and] also provide important routes of evacuation in case of emergencies … " 
   The document concludes with this tribute:  “All of the Path Wanderers Association’s inclusive activities build community and keep residents in touch with the natural beauty of our great city.”        
   We couldn't have said it better ourselves!
