Menlo Park school childen hand out May Baskets

In a tradition that goes back many years, children from a local Menlo Park school delivered handmade May baskets to the surrounding neighborhood yesterday. Those who grew up many years ago in Menlo may recall the annual Dad’s Club Barbecue at Hillview School (when it was a K-8) that occurred near May Day and included maypole dances. For trivia fans, May Day is a public holiday in Europe, India and China, where it’s associated with workers’ rights as well as garlands and festivals.
