Dear RROS Members-

We have recently received very short notice that we will no longer be able to meet each month at the Water Treatment Plant, on Llano Rd. The December meeting will be our last in that space. That notice put your board members into a frantic search for an alternative, and thankfully a great one is available. We will be welcome to meet in the hall of the First United Methodist Church on Montgomery Drive, in Santa Rosa. Many of you already know this as the monthly meeting place of Madrone Audubon. From our perspective, this move will be an improvement in many ways on the Water Treatment Plant. It is centrally located in the county, has very easy access (no more night driving on Llano Rd.), good parking, and lots of space and seating. There is also a kitchen available, which could make it easier on the cookie and coffee crew.

Like most changes, this one comes with a hitch. No Thursday nights are available. Our move will entail a switch to the second Wednesday night of each month, starting with the January 2015 meeting. We feel that this change should be put to a vote of the members, which will happen at the coming meeting, on 13th of this month (November). We hope very much to see this proposal accepted, as no other suitable venue has come up.

See you at the meeting!

Bill Doyle, Pres.
