Donated items included a variety of snacks, candy, teas, hot cocoa, personal items, toiletries, books, stationery, games, etc. Working together, packages were filled & shipped to all parts of the world.

#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: “Jeff Speakman's Kenpo / Wu Academy Sebastopol

My son had been dealing with a school which started to decline when the head instructor decided to expand and lost many of his adult students. Luckily, one day we drove by this studio and my son was captivated by the Mixed Martial Arts demonstration hosted by the Studio CO-OP. My son has once again learned to defend himself, enjoys karate, and has gained self confidence and friends. The atmosphere is friendly and warm. If you want your child to thrive, this is the school for you. Also, the Adult classes are amazing.

Re: “Jeff Speakman's Kenpo / Wu Academy Sebastopol

Probably the highest quality martial arts training facility in all of northern California. You would never think it was so huge from the outside windows, but I was blown away when I say the second classroom and full gym. Also the instructors from each program are really nice, inviting, and flexible.
