Journey for Good

Calin Van Paris’ account of her Habitat for Humanity trip to Guatemala (Journey, April) captured my interest. She provided an excellent snapshot of the people, the country, the Western Highlands and the deep satisfaction that comes from volunteer service. We have visited the places she describes, including the women’s weaving co-op in San Juan la Laguna, where local women learn to make a living while also preserving their cultural heritage. The photographs were also captivating. One of the best articles I have read in your magazine. Thanks for running it. MADELINE KELLNER, NOVATO

In the Park

As a regular reader of Marin Magazine I enjoy hearing about local events, books and people. I was especially pleased with the beautiful spread by Kasia Pawlowska (Currents, “Local Fixtures,” April) on Art Contemporary Marin’s Parked Art program. This nonprofit organization has been working the past seven years to encourage contemporary art in Marin by means of exhibitions and other art events. An outdoor self-guided sculpture walk will open at Falkirk Cultural Center on May 25. CLAUDIA CHAPLINE, PRESIDENT/CO-FOUNDER, ART CONTEMPORARY MARIN

Corrections

In our April Conversation with Mark Laret we misstated a few facts. Here is the correct information: Mark Laret is the CEO of UCSF Health, an organization consistently ranked one of the top 10 hospitals in the U.S. by U.S. News and World Report. It is not one of the 10 largest medical facilities in the U.S. The UCSF hospitals have more than a million outpatient visits a year, not one million outpatients.

The man identified in April’s “Cooking With Beer” feature for Sessions restaurant was actually Fort Point Beer Company’s head brewer Mike Schnebeck, not chef Michael Bilger.
