San Mateo County supervisor to host ‘District 5 Together Fair’
DALY CITY — New San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa is inviting the public to a cultural and resource fair called “District 5 Together” this Saturday, March 18.
Canepa represents Daly City, Brisbane, Colma and parts of South San Francisco and San Bruno.
“The fair will be a great opportunity to bring our diverse community together to learn more about each other and the many services the county provides,” said Canepa in a press release.
There will be dozens of agencies with information tables at the fair to provide those attending information on finding work, how to prepare for disasters, housing assistance and how to maintain a healthy and safe community.
There will also be music, dancing and food honoring District 5’s unique cultures. It will be held at Jefferson High School, the center of life for many Daly City residents.
Jefferson students will play a prominent role at the event as the school’s drumline will provide entertainment with various school clubs also providing exceptional food.
“While the fair is about fun it’s also about education. It’s an opportunity to provide north county residents the tools to help better their lives. It’s an opportunity for me to learn more about my constituents’ needs and also reassure them that I and my staff are here to listen and help,” Canepa states further.
There will be Peruvian, Burmese, Filipino, Chinese, Polynesian and Irish dance performed at the fair.
The fair is from11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, March 18, Jefferson High School Theater, 6996 Mission St., Daly City. RSVP via firstname.lastname@example.org or (650) 363-4247.
Hope to see you there as we celebrate our first of many “District 5 Together” events.
David J. Canepa represents District 5 on the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors and is the former mayor of Daly City.
