Cazadero Communications - March 2017


Cazadero Communications - March 2017

by Natasha Pehrson

It is currently not raining as I look out of the windows of my cozy cyber hut. As you all know we have received more than our share of rainfall so far this season – over 80” so far and more is predicted for the next few days. The prospect of crumbling hillsides and large trees dancing in the windy storms is very disquieting and I hope that you are all safe! In between the raindrops you may enjoy a tasty cup of coffee at Gold Coast in Duncans Mills or cross the road to Mr. Trombly’s Teas and Table shops for soothing teas and tempting decor items. Both the Duncans Mills and Cazadero General Stores offer daily groceries and many locally produced specialty items, such as wines, body products and organic meats. Raymond’s Bakery continues its Friday Pizza and Music Nights.

To volunteer at the lovely Sky Garden contact Cathy at The Cazadero Community Club resumes monthly meetings and I believe that the next will be on March 14th-7 p.m. at Firehall #1. Join your neighbors in planning great events which benefit the entrée community.

In March the 8th graders  at Montgomery Elementary School begin the process to learning more about El Molino High School. On March 1st they will visit  the high school and also on the 1st or the 9th they will be able to register. Contact the school office for specific details. The school will be on their Spring break from March 20th thru the 24th and will be back to school on Monday, March 27th.

Please join the Russian River Historical Society at the Rainbow Cattle Company on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at 6pm for Give Back Tuesday.

There will be a myriad of fabulous raffle prizes and a delicious dinner provided by Chef Paul of San Francisco Fire House Pasta for only $5.00 to help support the continued efforts to protect, preserve and present the unique history of the Russian River area. Check their website at

Are you ready for an emergency? If not and you are interested, the Russian River Fire Protection District has a program called Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) that is trained to help if and when an emergency occurs and is looking for people to join them.  the goal of the program is to be prepared to help your family, neighbors and community if and when the need occurs. It is the goal that each neighborhood would have trained members.   New training classes are scheduled for March 18 & 19 and again March 23 & 26 from 9:00am to 4:00pm This training is open to all persons interested in helping their community. please contact Marilyn Fox at
