*Project Roadmap Special Announcement*
It is with great sadness that the Project Roadmap team shares the news of the passing of one of its founding members, George Flores. George touched the lives of thousands of students with his passion for science and his enrichment excursions to Costa Rica and Hawaii, programs he called "Volcano Kids." In honor of Mr. Flores and all that he has given back to our community, the family has designated Project Roadmap for memorial contributions. If you would like to make a donation in George's honor, please select the following PayPal donation option:
If donating by check, please designate the Morgan Hill Community Foundation in the payee line with Project Roadmap listed in the notes section. Checks may be mailed to MHCF Attn. Project Roadmap, P.O. Box 1974,
Morgan Hill, CA, 95038.
