As part of the commemoration of the upcoming 100th anniversary of the Women’s Suffrage movement, the Santa Clara County Office of Women’s Policy (OWP) will offer $75,000 in mini-grants to Santa Clara County residents who want to organize their communities to promote civic engagement and participatory democracy in honor of the legacy created by the women who fought for the 19th amendment. Deadline: February 28, 2020.​

In March 2020, Gilroy will celebrate a major milestone, the 150th anniversary of its incorporation as a city, also known as Gilroy's Sesquicentennial. This milestone event will be celebrated with fun community activities including a Gilroy 150 Chamber Mixer on March 12th and a Gilroy 150 Family Fun Day on March 14th. Santa Clara County’s southernmost city, Gilroy is the southern gateway to Silicon Valley, and for many people: a hidden gem of family-friendly parks and trails, tree-lined streets, and small-town feel. Gilroy is probably best known for its rich history in agriculture and moniker "Garlic Capital of the World." But Gilroy is also located in the heart of the Santa Clara Valley Wine region and Wine Trail. Watching the Gilroy community come together in the aftermath of the 2019 Garlic Festival shooting proves that this community is #GilroyStrong. https://yourvoice.cityofgilroy.org/150th_celebration

Call for Makers – Open! Showcase your talent at the Gilroy Maker’s Faire 2020 on Saturday May 2nd at the Gilroy Library. They will be accepting applications until March 1.
