Thursday afternoon, August 24, 2017
Thanks to members Roberta Dixon and Jim Duckworth, our Volunteer Appreciation event will be a Wine and Cheese Tasting party held on the grounds of their lovely home.
Recently, Roberta told us: “We have asked our longtime friend Greg Berruto to lead our wine tasting event. Greg has been working in the wine industry in Sonoma for the past 15 years. He is a great wine educator, enjoys helping people learn about wines and is looking forward to making the party a fun experience for all our terrific volunteers.”
Novato Village needs a Volunteer Coordinator! If you’re interested in finding out more about what's involved, please contact Jean Gunn at email@example.com. We hear it all the time from members --- our volunteers are amazing people --- and we want to keep that volunteer connection strong.
