Slow Food Sonoma Valley
and The Sonoma Valley Grange
December 8, 2014
4th Annual Holiday Celebration
We recently changed our business meetings to the third Monday of each month. 6pm is our official start time, but come early to share ideas and learn about our agenda. These meetings are short (usually no more than an hour), friendly, and are a great way to help shape what it is we do. Come have your voice heard!
The Sonoma Valley Grange hall will not be available for rental after Tuesday, November 4, 2014, through the end of the year.
As summer is winding down, the celebration of the transition to fall is about to begin! Join us for our Whole Hog Fall Feast on the Autumn Equinox, September 21! We will, as always, be featuring delicious and healthy locally sourced food and drink for our guests culinary enjoyment. Music will accompany this FunRaising event to ring in the harvest season and help us move our renovation project forward!
Tickets on sale at Reader’s Books and Pharmaca, or call me, Seth, at 707.934.7332
Rentals are the monetary lifeblood of the Sonoma Valley Grange. Without rental income we cannot maintain the building. Without the building, we can’t serve the community, as is our mission. We have done a lot lately to try to make the rental process more efficient for all concerned. Unfortunately, these efforts have increased our overhead expenses. So, in order to assure that rental business operates to the benefit of the Grange, and therefore to the benefit of the entire community, we have had to raise the rate for a 24 hour rental to $570. We feel that this is still a good deal in this area, where meeting space is so pricey.
