We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of force of nature (and force for good), Janet Caslow. We first met Janet back in 2012 when she was a partner instrumental in starting the tradition of Community Gardening Day, our biggest annual volunteer event. Since then, she joined Recreation and Parks staff as volunteer coordinator for the department, where she continued to bring stakeholders together to accomplish tremendous things.

No idea was too big. Her enthusiasm was infectious, as well as her laugh. She is gone far too soon, and she will be missed terribly. We extend to her family and all those close to her our deepest sympathies.
