Sunday 2/26 3-6pm at 1935 Bohemian Hwy. in Occidental
Acclaimed Gypsy Jazz guitarist/composer Stephane Wrembel offers Guitar Workshop and Concert at O.C.A on Sunday, October 27.
Call it “Guitar Serendipity” or just coincidence, anyone who loves to play or hear the versatile instrument must make their way to Occidental Center for the Arts, the acoustically pleasing “home for all the arts”at Bohemian Highway and Graton Rd. to hear an outstanding variety of world- class guitar performances in October.
The First Valley Ford Antique Fair will be October 11, 12, 13, 14 at 14435, from 10a.m. to 4p.m. at 14380 and 14435 Hwy 1 in Valley Ford, and will feature American, European, and Asian antiques and curios. At the same time, Rocker Oysterfeller’s & The Valley Ford Hotel will celebrate Oktoberfest, transforming into a German biergarden for the entire weekend, offering a full German menu with German beer and Bavarian music. The postcard I received for this event had a really cool grouping of items, so check it out!
The deadline to submit vendor applications for the 28th Annual Holiday Crafts Faire is coming right up on September 20! Local artisans, do your thing at www.occidental-ca.org.
If you were to look at the Occidental Wastewater Treatment Plant system upgrade in terms of treated wastewater disposal, you’d praise the process and see it as a solution to a long-suffered problem with a deadline looming to fix a system that doesn’t meet environmental mandates.
But if you attended the June 20th Scoping Meeting, where the community was asked for comments that will be reviewed in the Draft Environmental Impact Report, you get a whole other side to this story.
So you may have heard that my comprehensive piece on the Occidental Community Center was accidentally omitted from June’s issue. Check it out on-line at www.SonomaCountyGazette.com. That will give you all the background information on what’s been happening in town, with the exception of the June 4 meeting, which seemed to air a lot of the frustration and distrust that a minority of the community seem to have for the County and its process.
