Our vision is to understand and appreciate the unique history of Kentfield, Greenbrae and surrounding areas, and honor the individuals, groups and businesses that have made significant contributions to our community.
KGHS wishes you a HAPPY 2022!
The theme of “Return, Reconnect, Revitalize” will be the focus of the next steps for KGHS in the upcoming year. We are discussing long-term planning for the organization. Covid seems to have put the brakes on again but we hope that a January hibernation will bring an invigorated spring.
