Berkeley Stories is a monthly series featuring the extraordinary ordinary people all around us. The people that make Berkeley the unique place it is, and whose hands have touched our lives in unseen ways.
This month, meet Lisa Bullwinkel: Artist, art advocate, awarded 2016 Small Businesswoman of the Year, ex-Solano Stroll producer, and the woman who turned Fourth of July at the Berkeley Marina from a booze-fueled firework free-for all to an annual family-friendly celebration of community.
Let’s hear her story.
Send a little peace around the world. Help us fold 1,000 origami cranes to send to Japan in the spirit of peace and brotherhood. The Berkeley Public Library's Playreaders will read from the children's book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, and we will have the treat of beautiful koto music by Shirley Kazuyo Muramoto and friends. If you don't know how to fold, come join us anyway, we will have instructions and people to help teach you how.
