*What Happened to Access to Adventure? Due to those pesky “circumstances beyond our control*” Access to Adventure will be taking a sabbatical in 2014 but will be back in 2015. In its place, Support for Families will be holding this low-key Old Fashioned Spring Picnic! *The Golden Gate Park Bandshell and other appropriate locations for the event were taken by other organizations.
