Law enforcement professional Sheriff Greg Munks spent six years serving as sheriff of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. While in the position, Sheriff Greg Munks performed community outreach with events such as the North Fair Oaks Community Festival.
For 12 years, the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office has hosted the North Fair Oaks Community Festival. This popular annual event runs for a single day every August and delights more than 30,000 citizens with a variety of activities. Rides, food and beverages, arts and crafts, and live entertainment are among the attractions at this celebration. Moreover, it contains an hour-long parade.
Proceeds from the North Fair Oaks Community Festival go towards numerous programs established by the sheriff’s office. The Queen of the Festival scholarship provides money to five young women who are entering college but require financial assistance. Children benefit from the funding given to the Sheriff’s Activities League, which runs after-school and summer programs featuring athletics and arts and crafts. The North Fair Oaks Community Festival also supports S.T.A.R. Camp. Another yearly tradition, S.T.A.R. Camp involves personnel taking youths who are disadvantaged on a weeklong camping trip at YMCA Camp Loma Mar.
