The Bird Rock Community Council recently presented a check for $5,700 from the proceeds of the Community Cookbook to Bird Rock Elementary’s Parents Committee.

The funds have been earmarked for buildings and grounds improvement projects, including an art piece honoring retired BRE staff members who have dedicated their careers to the neighborhood’s children and in honor of BRE’s 60th anniversary. It will mark the establishment of the BRE Historical Gallery.
