What’s coming? The Woodland/Davis Surface Water Project. A foregone conclusion that we will have treated water pumped from the Sacramento River in unison with our neighbors to the north, which will replace both cities reliance on supposedly deteriorating well water. It’s certainly questionable if other viable options have been considered. Our water rates will now be some of the highest in the State of California. Regardless, treated water will be coming to Davis and Woodland.
What’s going? Merryhill School, a private school in South Davis serving students from pre kindergarten through 6th grade will be closing in the summer. Low enrollment plus the buildings lease coming to an end, precipitated the announcement. Davis is home to several other private schools including St. James School, the Davis Waldorf School, Grace Valley Christian Academy and Peregrine School.
Coming to a church near you. The Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter of Davis (IRWS) is a community based-effort enabling member congregations to provide cold-weather shelter and hospitality on a rotating basis to persons who are homeless in the Davis community.The spirit of the program is to provide a bridge between those with shelter and those without. The goal is to provide shelter in the physical, emotional and spiritual sense of the word. To do so, the aim to serve, not to help nor fix. Helping implies that they put themselves above the person receiving the help, and fixing implies the other person is broken. Instead, they strive to see the wholeness in the other person, to trust and to collaborate with that wholeness. University Covenant Church will proudly participate for the period between February 17th through March 2nd. Visit their website ucov.com to sign up and participate.
