As our community arrives at the 2-year anniversary of the 2017 North Bay Fires on October 8th, we are reminded about our vulnerabilities, our struggles to recover, and our continued need for resiliency. Fire and emergency services have been elevated issues over the past two years. They deserve our attention, our respect, and our support. As fire departments countywide are grappling with how to best serve their communities, the local Fire Protection District Boards of Directors in Graton, Gold Ridge and Occidental have decided to take matters into their own hands by placing funding measures on the ballot for a special election this November 5th.

By now you probably know all about measure F. Most likely you have already decided if you will support it or not, I WILL BE, but if for some reason you are not familiar with it, here are some highlights.

There was some confusion asking if both renters and property owners pay. To clear that up it is only property owners who will pay the tax to fund Measure F.

Mark your calendars for the Graton Community Club’s Fall Flower Show - October 11th and 12th Friday and Saturday. Three benches made by local artists have been installed in the Graton Green.  Each is really different and a work of art.  The bench by Thomas Kolonuzs-Partee is totally covered in nickels.  It sits under the old water tower.   Another is  a beautiful bench by Chris Cheek as a memorial to his wife, Ellen Kaplan Cheek.  Ellen was a member of the Graton Green Group Board of Directors and our treasurer.  We miss her daily. The third bench, by Cricket Seagull, is a work of beauty all in ceramic pieces.
