Kids, parents and Old Mission Peninsula residents gathered at the infamous “sledding hill” at Old Mission Peninsula School on Friday, Feb. 1, for the school’s annual cardboard sled race.
Kids of all ages crafted their creative sleds out of cardboard, duct tape, and whatever else was handy, as folks looked on to see who made it down the hill in record time (or maybe just made it down the hill at all!).

Even the Peninsula Fire Department took a turn on the sledding hill, with Chief Fred Gilstorff giving them a good sendoff. After the race, everyone enjoyed a tasty potluck at the school.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers like the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and magazines like Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So of course, I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the Old Mission Peninsula.
