My heart goes out to the high school graduates who won't be able to experience a normal graduation. For the last eight years I volunteered at the Grad Night in Rohnert Park and feel bad I won't be doing that this year. What is so frustrating is that there are gatherings of one hundred starting this weekend. I believe in karma and because of what the graduates are going through something awesome will happen to them very soon.
One of my favorite people in Rohnert Park is Mickey Zeldes. She is the face of the Rohnert Park Animal Shelter. (http://rpanimalshelter.org/adopt) During this crazy quarantine period of our lives senior citizens have been adopting cats and dogs from the animal shelter. Thank you Rohnert Park for adopting animals so they have a forever home. Call Mickey at 707 584 1582 if you are interested in adopting. You will be happy when you do. Stay in touch on their facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/rpanimalshelter for current news!
Stray Alert - Female chihuahua (20-0327) was found wandering loose in Rancho Verde MHP on RP Expressway today (5/30). Sadly she’s not wearing a collar or a chip. Surely someone is missing her? Please call the RP Shelter, 707 584-1582, if you know who she belongs to. Although they are not open to the public right now, there is staff working.
• Wear masks.
• No sharing of items or supplies.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces between uses.
• Develop a schedulle for increased routine cleaning and disinfection.
• All belongings separated into individual cubbies or labeled containers.
• No sharing electronic devices, toys, games or learning aids.
• Desks should be 6 feet apart and all facing the same direction.
• One child per seat on school buses and skip rows between riders.
• Install sneeze guards or portitions where 6 feet apart won't work.
• One-way routes in hallways.
• Tape on sidewalks and walls to ensure kids stay 6 feet apart.
• Physical barriers or screens between sinks in bathrooms.
• Only prepackaged boxes or bags of food instead of hot lunch.
• Kids eat lunch in classrooms.
• No more field trips.
• Same children stay with the same staff all day.
• No switching groups or teachers.
• Limit volunteers and visitors.
• Daily health and temperture checks.
I agree with most of this except no hot lunches. What about the families that rely on schools to feed their kids a hot lunch.
For those of you who love live theater, I feel your pain. Spreckels is the place to go in Rohnert Park. For those of you lucky enough to have gone to New York to see shows on Broadway, you will love to know you can see your favorite Broadway actors on shows on television.
As you can tell, movies and live theater are my passion, which is why I also write the Film Review column in the CALENDAR section of the Gazette. You can go online to find my recommendations for films to watch since we can’t go to plays! Hopefully we will be able to see live theater sooner than later!
There are two Mexican restaurants I want to mention that will deliver to you hungry Rohnert Park residents through Doordash. The first is Mi Pueblo. Their chicken fajitas is to die for. Just call 707 792 4380 and it should get to you in 30 minutes. The other is Mi Ranchito. The carne asada dish is amazing. Call 707 795 7600 to order and again, it should only take 30 minutes to get to you. Remember to tip your delivery person, often that is all they make.
