Bubb Park Mothers & Dogs Society
A Collection of Memories
2001 through 2021

Plus some Bubb School Events & Projects and Bagels & Babies Events and CPNA Events.

Here's your menu page for finding the memories of Bubb Park Potlucks. It's a sampling of the good times had by kids, dogs and families over the years. It's fun to see the appearance of new faces, and bring back images of friends who have moved on from Bubb Park, but whose memories will live on in our hearts. There are lots of other links to Bubb School activities too - just scroll down to the bottom. We adapted to the constraints of COVID-19 with some Cuesta Park neighborhood activites and have added those too.

For some background, BPMDS started back around 2000 from the association of dogs and kids who were regulars at Bubb Park. As it happens, you might know the dog's name, or the kid's name but maybe didn't connect with the parents names. Our founders included, Jenny Patterson with dog Kenai, Karen Price with dog McKinley, Wendy Yee with dog Niko, Vera Kark with dog Link and Rick Van Mell with dog Teak. So we started a list and passed it around. Then one day we thought about having a potluck in the park at the "Mushroom Tables" at the Barbara Street end of Bubb Park.

BPMDS regulars and new families are always welcome to join the fun. It's a great way to catch up with old friends and make new ones. It's all based on the simple premise that Bubb Park neighbors, their kids and dogs, are a fun community that just enjoys occasional opportunities to get together and hang out in Bubb Park over some food while the kids play. And, really, you don't have to have a dog or kids to join the fun! Ages 8 weeks to 80 years are often in attendance. Some pages below have lists of who attended, others just pictures and perhaps a paragraph or two about the event. The pictures below are the group shots from each year. See how many faces you can remember!

If you have questions, or would like to join the fun, you can try contacting Rick Van Mell, who put most of the pages together, at vanmells@ix.netcom.com.
