ATTENTION ALL SDOIA MEMBERS !
Remember that our Ambassador of Happiness, Louise is now gone from us and we will drink a toast to her. Remember what she always said - Be kind to someone today and that kindness will return back to you in many ways...Stay well and please join us August 8th...
Sixteen months ago, March 2020, we had our last SDOIA meeting of the Cesare Battisti Lodge in Petaluma. As we look ahead to this coming August 8th, a Sunday at 2PM in the afternoon, we will be having our first post pandemic meeting and early dinner at our new location in Rohnert Park, just a hop north of Petaluma. We are meeting at 5099 Snyder Lane in the Club House of the Rancho Grande Modular Home Park. Limited parking inside the grounds but ample parking is across the street in the school parking lot, A short walk across Snyder at the traffic light. We normally hosted 45 to 60 people but with this new location, day and time our count is way over 100. We asked for Advance Reservations Only and got them. It will be bitter sweet as we have lost some valuable members but on the other hand, we have 16 people waiting to join our lodge. I think the new location, day and time had a lot to do with the new people wanting to join. I am so grateful as it puts our lodge in a good light with the Grand Lodge and our new President Barbara Wiesniewski. When this first meeting is over, we will plan on an installation and welcome ceremony for all the new members possibly towards the end of this year. I hope this finds you all well and hungry for Ed’s Italian BBQ Chicken...See you August 8th. 2PM, open seating so don’t be late.
We had been told that our dinner/meetings must be canceled until further notice. Due to the rise in Covid in Sonoma county we need to halt all events. Cases have risen among un-vaccinated people and that made it spread very fast.
Stay tuned for a notice that we can resume, hopefully by the end of this year.
