From: domainremoved <Jennifer>
Date: Wed, 23 Mar 2016 22:35:18 -0700

Dear Menlo Park Officials,

I apologize for having to do this, but the date of the Laurel Walk and
Wheel to School event has been changed to *May 4th*. I am sorry for any
inconvenience this may cause and I hope that we will be able to work
together to make this new day a success.

Thank you for your understanding and your ongoing support.

Very sincerely,
Jen Wolosin
