Willow Glen Children's Theatre Celebrates 30 Years

The Willow Glen Children’s Theatre has been shaping local youth for 30 years. To celebrate this milestone, a Gala was held on February 3, at Vin Santo Ristorante in downtown Willow Glen. This program was started by Gavin Coffing, a long-time employee of the Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services (PRNS) who retired from the City in 2004. Gavin then became a volunteer and continued as the director. 14 years later, he continues to volunteer his time. At the Gala, Councilmember Dev Davis presented him a commendation from the City on behalf of Mayor Liccardo and the City Council. He also received a certificate of commendation from PRNS for 50 years of service as an employee and volunteer. In support of the longtime partnership of Willow Glen Children's Theatre and the City of San José, Bekah Hill, supervisor of Willow Glen Community Center, received the Willow Glen Children’s Theater Presidents Award. For more information, please contact Neil Rufino, PRNS Deputy Director, 408-535-3572.
