  • Lost Hills Festival

    DHF youth in Lost Hills Prepared and frosted 700 cupcakes for a community activity for the Paramount Fall Festival on November 6, 2011. The Fall Festival was a  ribbon cutting and celebration of their newly renovated park and Community center. 

    Three of the moms did all the baking with the help of their children. The cupcakes were baked in the homes and the youth came together to prepare for the celebration. The activity was a success! All the children that came to the festival were able to decorate their own cupcake. We had 30 youth Vecino volunteers on Saturday and 18 volunteers hosting the activity on Sunday.

    Special guests included Gavin Newsom and Lynda Resnick.
