On Jan 9, 2019, the first anniversary of the "1/9 Debris Flow" of 2018, thousands of Montecito neighbors and friends
gathered at Lower Manning Park to commemorate the tragic losses of people and property.

MERRAG volunteers provided radio communications at all eight park-and-ride lots,
coordinated from the Communications Van staged at Montecito Union School.
