LinkAges Timebank members and members of the Palo Alto community enjoyed visits from Palo Alto Perry, the fuzzy official "Neighborhood Ambassador of Palo Alto," and his real-life counterparts, Barron Park donkeys Pericles and Niner, as well as a summer picnic during the Timebank launch party in Bol Park on June 18.

LinkAges TimeBank is a "community-based service exchange network where members give and receive help, learn new skills and share hobbies and interests," according to its website. Members earn hours by providing services and can use those hours to receive services in return.
