Annual Program Events

Picture1Fourth of July Parade Reserved Seating for Seniors – We start taking reservations the beginning of June for seating on the Plaza. Along with Kiwanis of Sonoma Plaza we set up 175 seats west of the bandstand for this beloved annual Sonoma event. Seating fills up early so please call the front desk to make your reservation as soon as we’ve posted the announcement.

Holiday Dinners – Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners for Sonoma Valley seniors age 55 and above who would otherwise be alone. Volunteers help prepare and serve our traditional dinners on the actual holiday. With the help of Kiwanis of Sonoma Plaza we also deliver meals to those who are home-bound and unable to attend the celebration. We announce registration start dates in the October newsletter and in the local papers. Call early to reserve your space. Local businesses and individuals in the community rally around these events by providing food, wine, donations, and entertainment. It also takes many volunteers to make these dinners possible, including: professional chefs and interested community members who help with decorating, shopping, food prep, serving, set up, clean up, and driving seniors to and from the dinner. If you’re interested in volunteering on, or the week of the holiday, please contact Marissa no more than 30 days prior to the holiday.

Volunteer Appreciation Celebration – For those who help carry out our mission and generously volunteer their time and talents.
