WELCOME TO PARKPOINT SONOMA

Hello, members!

If you haven’t seen me around the club, there’s a good reason! Almost three months ago, I broke my femur bone and twisted my knee going into the garden. I had no idea soft tissue would take longer to heal than my fractured leg. But one thing I know, I sure appreciate all the balance work Kim does in her classes. That really helped me with standing on one leg—almost felt like I was a flamingo at times!

We had a wonderful 30th anniversary party at Ramekins a few weeks ago. It was fun celebrating, drinking Sonoma wines, eating delectable nibbles, and kicking up our heels to Time Bandits dance band! Members could not stop moving!

If you missed out on that party, we have another event planned for Friday, September 6, here at the club! Come on down and check out the beautiful bird photos taken in the Ecuadorean Cloud Forest and the Brazilian Atlantic Forest by Stephanie Arnow. We will also be serving wine and nibbles while enjoying the art and our special guests.

Presenters

  • 5:30pm: Wildlife & Conservation Expert Burr Heneman & Nossa Terra Founder Stephanie Arnow
  • 6pm: Meg Beeler of Sonoma Mountain Preservation

Summer is over, with the kids back in school, but as always our nice weather continues. We have extended our evening aqua classes with Ryan through Wednesday, October 23! That’s Mondays and Wednesdays from 6–7pm. Ryan is also continuing his Wednesday 5:15–5:45pm 30-minute HIIT Swimming class that is for all levels including beginner!

Enjoy the end of summer and the beginning of our cooler fall. See you in the Club!
