Re: “Petaluma Elks Lodge 901

On Saturday October 18, 2014, members and officers of the Petaluma Elks Lodge gave their time and efforts to again proudly support the annual "Walk to End Alzheimer's" event. Last year 901 made breakfast burritos which were an instant hit with all proceeds donated to the Alzheimer's Foundation. The foundation was so impressed with our success last year that they let us set up our station in a more visible location with better foot traffic. This paid off as we made and sold 40 breakfast burritos which raised $200 for the Alzheimer's Foundation. We will proudly be a part of this event in 2015.
Many thanks go to the following Elks for making this a successful event. Marilyn Bartow (Exalted Ruler) Don Broadbent, Ron Green, Rich Green, Dan Pastryk and Janice Pacciorini. You are all great examples of what Elks are all about.

Re: “Petaluma Elks Lodge 901

Petaluma Elks put the Freedom Grant to use by taking 7 Disabled Veterans out on the San Francisco Bay for a day of Sea Kayaking.
On Saturday, May 31 the Petaluma Elks hosted 7 disabled Veterans on an amazing day of Sea Kayaking on the open waters along the beautiful Sausalito Shoreline. The day started with the veterans meeting the Elk volunteers at the lodge and then boarding “Russ the Bus” and enjoying a light breakfast on the road to the San Francisco Bay. When they arrived they were met by our guides, Environmental Travel Companions, a non-profit company who specialize in open water kayaking for the disabled.
Once we unloaded, the Veterans gathered in a circle along the water front and were given a thorough orientation and then were provided with a safety meeting and a chance to get to know everyone. The goal for the days was to build community, escape from the pressures of everyday life and to learn a little more about ourselves. The guides outfitted each of us with all the gear needed for the day. Each Veteran was matched up with a guide or Elk member and after careful loading into the kayaks they pushed off into the harbor to start the journey. The group was instructed to stay close together to enjoy it with each kayak. The expedition began with the group effortlessly paddling down the beautiful Sausalito shoreline dotted with beautiful yachts, sailboats and friendly people along the shoreline waving and encouraging them. After a few hours, the group pushed their kayaks up on a private secluded beach to enjoy a handmade lunch provided by the Elks. The beach overlooked the San Francisco Bay Bridge, the shoreline dotted with tall buildings from the City, a clear shot of Alcatraz and the beautiful east bay hills in the background.
As we group launched off the beach to head back, they were treated to blue skies with a warm sun casting down on them surrounded by sparkling water and small sea lions popping their heads up out of the water and playing with the group, it was a just a perfect moment in time. The trip then headed back up the amazing shoreline while being aided with the tide coming in and the wind at their backs giving them a chance to sit back and enjoy each other’s company while peacefully gliding up the shoreline.
The trip lasted 4 hours in the water and it truly afforded the Veterans time away from their difficult lives, an opportunity to bond and build teamwork and community. At the end of the trip back on shore, the guides had the veterans go back into a circle and share what they enjoyed the most. After each had spoken, it was clear we reached our goals. It was just an incredible day. The Petaluma Elks can feel a little better for they have given these men who fought for our freedoms. Elks Care and Elks Share!

Re: “Petaluma Elks Lodge 901

#901 Elks Help to Feed
Petalumans in Need

Well that big red barrel in the lobby keeps filling up with much needed food for distribution by our local post of the Salvation Army. To date Petaluma #901 has donated a bit over 1,100 lbs of food.
Our local Salvation Army helps to feed between 100 and 150 families a week in Petaluma.

This year's “STAMP OUT HUNGER” campaign by the post office was on the decline for the second year in a row. The consolidation of postal routes and fewer postal carriers in the community is thought to be part of the cause. The Post office in the past years was able to help the Petaluma Salvation Army with nine months of the food needs for those Petalumans in need.

So when local service groups like ours can step up with a barrel or more a month it makes a BIG difference and is a great help.

So next time your at the market think about picking up an extra can of soup or vegetables and drop them in the red barrel at the lodge.

Also it has been talked about that this Holiday #901 would sponsor a kettle during the holidays. All that we need to do is get 4 folks together to man a kettle for two hours each. The kettle would have a sign showing that Petaluma #901 was the sponsor. For every team of four folks we can man additional kettles. One day is all they ask.

It’s a great way to give back to the community and let you feel the holiday spirit. One year I was ringing the bell and a man came up and opened his wallet and I could see he had a dollar and a five dollar bill in an old torn wallet. . He was dressed clean but you could tell he wasn't on top of the world. He reached in and placed the five dollar bill in the kettle. Sharing that when he was down and out he had went through the men’s Salvation Army program in Litton Springs north of Healdsburg and it had turned his life around. I cant tell you how much that meant to me to hear his story and to bring the true meaning of the holiday home to my heart.

Re: “Flipside Bar & Burger

I've come here to watch the Giants and it has been great. Sat at the bar and got wonderful service. The Tuesday special was deceptive. Thought my beers were $3 but they weren't. Taught me to double check while ordering. Other than that they were wonderful. Sara Anderson is a wonderful server!

Re: “Old Chicago Pizza

It's very good pizza. Lots of cheese on a deep dish. The Medium-sized mushroom and garlic is one of their best. Don't choose too many ingredients; usually one or two. Don't order a large - for some reason, they skimp on the ingredients on their large pizzas; and they're very expensive. Stick with the medium-size and you'll be pleased. I've been eating Old Chicago pizzas for over 30 years. Sometimes, you just have to have one! Like a burger attack... They take about 30 minutes to cook, it's deep-dish after all. A medium will set you back about $21.85 for about 6 pieces on a medium, and most people will only eat one or two pieces - they're big and thick.
