State of the Cities event slated Friday
The Los Altos Chamber of Commerce has scheduled a virtual State of the Cities event 11 a.m. Friday.
Los Altos Mayor Jan Pepper and Los Altos Hills Mayor Michelle Wu will discuss past accomplishments and city council priorities for the year.
Registration for the event, a fundraiser for the Chamber and small businesses, is $50. Registrants will receive a $20 gift card redeemable at local businesses.
After consulting with past winners, the Chamber decided this year’s event will not include a Walter and Marie Singer Award presentation recognizing an outstanding local merchant. The Chamber plans to resume the award next year.

LAH set to host July 4 ‘caravan’
Due to COVID-19 concerns, this year’s Los Altos Hills Independence Day will be a slightly muted affair compared to past iterations, featuring a “caravan” of participants instead of the regular parade, according to organizers.
The caravan, launching 10 a.m. July 4 from town hall, 26379 W. Fremont Road, is limited to representatives from the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office, the Santa Clara County Fire Department, 10-15 classic cars and city council members driving the route.
From town hall, the procession will travel down West Fremont Road and complete a large circle with right turns onto Robleda, Purissima and Arastradero roads before ending at town hall. Residents are encouraged to walk to the nearest street or drive to Purissima Park, 27500 Purissima Road, or Gardner Bullis School, 25890 Fremont Road, to enjoy the festivities.
