Clarification: This location is not definite yet, say organizers. There are still building safetyRead More standards and food delivery and safety guidelines that need to be met.

What about the abandoned Theater behind Oliver's Market? I think Oliver's already donates to NOAHRead More but that would make it much more convenient for them to partner with NOAH.

A nomination for Person of the Year comes in from Chet Laws, who writes: "Jennifer MillerRead More Wiltermood is deserving of this recognition. Her tireless efforts on both the PTA and RP's 50th Anniversary Celebration are worthy of receiving The Person of The Year award." Do you have someone in mind? Please add a comment to this article!

And another: -Jen is an excellent choice, and very deserving of this recognition. I also thinkRead More little Callie would make an excellent choice for person of the year. She brought the community together and cultivated a place within our community and hearts that few (if any) Rohnert Park residents have ever achieved. She opened the doors for discussions about how to keep our children safe. She brought about discussions of distracted driving, and made all of us aware of the dangers of texting and driving. In a few short years of life she touched every single family and individual in our community, and affected a positive change from a terrible tragedy. Callie moved something in all of us and will have a lasting impact on our community. Her sweet life was cut too short and left a hole in all of us, while binding us together in a new awareness. She left behind a heart broken father who publicly acknowedge he would in time forgive the teen driver for Callie, and allow our community to heal from this tragedy. We discovered how strong we were and how we could come together for one of our own. Callie taught us so much of peace, togetherness, community, forgiveness, strength and to remember to love our family's everyday.

Jennifer has received a lot of support for this nomination - for all she does for the community.Read More Here are a few comments, via a Facebook group dedicated to CRUPSD: -Jennifer Miller Wiltermood is a tireless advocate for our community; especially for our children! -What I like most about Jen is that even though she is so involved, and knows so much about what happens in our community, she never makes her fellow volunteers feel like they are less involved or important than she is. In fact, she pulls people in with her appreciative nature. She is the ultimate in team players. She really deserves to be recognized!

It is all about making a difference in the life of a senior. We're finding that the generousity ofRead More our volunteers not only affect the senior, but their family, their neighbors, and the community at large.

Thank you for your comments Catherine and Cade. Cade, I'm so glad you told us that — Rev.Read More Tharpe said so many of his former students have been volunteers through the years. What a great person.

Something about food eating contests seems strange to me in this economy, where more and moreRead More children and adults aren't able to get enough to eat. Can't we come up with something more appropriate to the times? Competing over how much food we can stuff in our mouths seems so unconsciously American.
Jake Mackenzie October 10, 2011 at 01:57 pm

This was all in "fun" so everyone lighten up. We went brought our 1934 car and reallyRead More enjoyed ourselves. Its good to get out and just have a good time once in awhile and not have to spend a fortune.

It's sad the city can't do something on their own. Either remove the crosswalk or improve it'sRead More conditions. How hard can it be?
