Mill Valley Memorial Day Parade

Monday, May 30, 10:30 a.m.Mill Valley Parade with classic truck and people sitting and standing near the truck

I hope to see you at the Mill Valley Memorial Day Parade! I’ll be riding with Maggie Lang, Emergency Preparedness Coordinator with Mill Valley Fire Department, and Michelle Goddard-Terrell, Marin Disaster Council Mill Valley Emergency Preparedness Commission. We look forward to gathering together in-person after two years of virtual parades.  This year’s theme is " Mill Valley Salutes Memorial Day." The Veterans Ceremony at Lytton Square (in front of the Depot Cafe) begins a 9:45 a.m. and the parade starts at 10:30 a.m. just before Old Mill Park. It will feature a Color Guard, a dog march (with trophies given for Best Dog), the Redwood Drum Corps, a veteran float, and more. This year, the parade will also focus on the war in Ukraine, and honor those who lost their lives fighting for freedom around the world. A portion of the parade registration and sponsorship proceeds will go to humanitarian aid in Ukraine. There will also be a KIDDO After Parade Party at the Mill Valley Recreation Center, which begins at noon with live music, food, and carnival.



Join the Marin County Participatory Budgeting Committee

Thursday, June 2, 6 p.m.Join the participatory budgeting committee. Applications are open now through June 19th

The County of Marin is making $2.5 million available, and YOU decide how it will be spent. This new way of making decisions about publicly funded projects is called Participatory Budgeting, a democratic process in which community members decide how to spend part of a public budget. It gives community members real power to make decisions over real money.

County of Marin Gun Buy Back ProgramMarin to Host Gun Buy-Back Event

Saturday, June 4, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

The recent tragic events across the country involving guns weigh heavily on our hearts. While these tragic incidents occurred many miles away from Marin County, we need to continue to work together, be vigilant, listen and provide support to each other.  Marin County’s effort to enhance safety in the community includes the goal of collecting and disposing of unwanted and unneeded firearms. On June 4, the Marin County District Attorney’s Office, the City of San Rafael, and local law enforcement agencies are conducting a gun buy-back event at the sheriff’s headquarters in San Rafael. The collaborating agencies are working to help reduce gun violence, the risk of accidental discharges, domestic violence, suicide, and gun theft by encouraging people to voluntarily turn in or sell guns they no longer want in their homes. All guns collected will be destroyed.
