Flag-raising signals start of Portola Valley 50th anniversary party
Emily Coffee, 3, kisses her mom Brook's hand while holding her sister Grace's hand during the "Raise the Flag" celebration commemorating Portola Valley's 50th anniversary. A resident for the past 5 years, Brook Coffee says she came to the event to "come together as a community." She moved here to "be in a rural area, be closer to nature and have my children raised outdoors to form a deep appreciation and connection to it." The event took place at the Historic Schoolhouse building at the Town Center on Jan. 16, 2014. (Photo by Michelle Le/The Almanac.)
