Downtown Santa Rosa Pedestrian-Friendly Zones

Downtown Santa Rosa has closed three blocks of Fourth Street to create a downtown promenade that will allow businesses to use sidewalk and street parking areas to seat customers outdoors.  

The extended room for shoppers, diners and strollers is meant to create harmony between two opposing forces: The desire to have a thriving business-rich corridor along Fourth Street near Old Courthouse Square and the responsibility to help curb the spread of COVID-19, which is believed to be more prone to spread indoors than outside.

Become a Child Advocate. Give the Gift of Time and Friendship!

At CASA of Sonoma County, we help foster children heal so they can live happier, safer lives. Our CASA volunteers – Court Appointed Special Advocates – make sure foster kids don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service systems or languish in unsupportive foster homes. CASA volunteers stay with children until their court case is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home.

 

We invite our community to give the gift of time and friendship to a child in foster care. Juvenile court officials have identified an additional 75 youth who need advocates and CASA is appealing to Sonoma County residents to volunteer. If you care and have about 10 hours a month to spend, being a CASA can be a very gratifying work. A CASA is a powerful voice in a child’s life. Executive Director, Millie Gilson, states that there are approximately 187 volunteers, and hopes to recruit another 35 with the next training.

 

The Fall Volunteer Training, is scheduled to take place on the following dates: Thursday, October 8th, from 9:30-12:30, and continues on Thursday, October 15th and Friday, October 16th , from 9:00-1:00. CASA will provide this training via an online format. For more information and to sign up for the CASA training, contact Millie Gilson at 707-565-6375 or info@sonomacasa.org.

 

Working together, we can end abuse and neglect so that every foster child has a chance to thrive.

Museum of Sonoma County (Virtual) Conversations with Artist Mercedes Dorame

The Museum is pleased to present artist Mercedes Dorame in conversation with Art Curator and Museum Executive Director, Jeff Nathanson, on Wednesday, September 23. This virtual program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Landscape: Awe to Activism."About her art, L.A. based artist Mercedes Dorame writes, "My work explores the construction of culture and ceremony as outcomes of the need to tie one's existence to the land. My heritage as a member of the Tongva tribe in Los Angeles connects me deeply to the landscape of California." Dorame creates what she describes as "humble ceremonial interventions" and installations in the landscape to explore the problems of living in a place that her Native American tribe no longer has access to.These ceremonial interventions are documented by her photographs. She explains that her tribe has no federal recognition, no reservation land, and therefore, no gathering place. By working in landscapes where she has an ancestral connection, Dorame engages in ideas of authenticity, ceremony, and community. Registration is limited. To ensure an enjoyable viewing experience for all, we ask that microphones remain muted and questions be asked in the chat section only.For assistance in registering or to submit questions for Mercedes in advance, please contact Jon Del Buono, programs@museumsc.org.

Santa Rosa Symphony Streams Redesigned Fall Concerts from Weill Hall, Green Music Center

The Santa Rosa Symphony,  with government approval for private recording sessions, will perform, record and stream its redesigned Fall concerts, making them safely accessible online for subscribers, patrons and new audiences around the globe. In early October, November and December, on the Green Music Center's Weill Hall stage, a socially-distanced subset of the orchestra and Music Director Francesco Lecce-Chong will record three concerts to replace the originally planned live concerts. SRS @ Home Virtual Fall Concert Series will be streamed live on YouTube on October 11, November 15 and December 13 at 3:00 PM. Additional performances by soloists are reserved exclusively for SRS subscribers.

 

Working with Diversified Stages, a professional video production company, and implementing approved health and safety protocols, the Symphony is recording concert events that will include close-ups and a variety of angles of the musicians performing, along with a virtual peek backstage, short interviews, commentary, a post-concert Q & A with the Music Director and more.
