On Sunday, December 6th, we had our famous pancake breakfast at our local SVGrange Hall. Many neighbors came out for a great, organic and tasty meal, saw old friends, made new ones, and checked out our progress on the Hall! It had been 10 months since our last public event and we were so looking forward to seeing our great Sonoma Valley community.
Now that the new bathrooms are finished, and the wood floor has been sanded and refinished, come see the great new renovated building and have a great time at the same time!
