The Petaluma Active 20-30 Club is building a mini-library at the COTS Family Emergency Shelter. We are looking to build a good selection of books to promote reading and encourage parents to read with their kids. The goal is to get books suitable for all ages including teenagers. Each year the club will monitor the library and refresh the stock of books.
Ways to help:
**Copperfields is partnering with the Petaluma Active 20-30 Club has set up a special table that has books that have been discounted 30% during the weekend of the Midterm Convention. Please visit the store and purchase a book to donate!
- Purchase a new book from Copperfields Book Store (140 Kentucky St. - ½ block walk from Hotel Petaluma where convention is located)

Dining: Friday Night and Sunday Morning will be self-pay and there are many options in Downtown Petaluma. Saturday Lunch will be provided (Taco Bar by El Roy's) immediately following the Business Meeting, and Saturday Dinner is also provided in the Hotel Ballroom. If anyone wishes to eat breakfast prior to the business meeting you are on your own as well.
Airport Transportation: Self-pay - Airport Express (http://airportexpressinc.com/schedules.php) runs from SFO, OAK or STS (Santa Rosa) to downtown Petaluma, members of our club will be available to shuttle registrants from the shuttle drop-off to the hotel. If anyone is flying into the Santa Rosa airport, they are encouraged to contact members of #50, #1029 and/or #205 for transport (if you need contact info for a ride from that direction, let me know and I can look into getting it set up for you).
The hotel allows us to provide our own alcohol for the meeting/dinner, which we will include in the registration cost. This does mean you are free to BYOB as well.
On the Saturday night we're going to have the hotel ballroom converted to a casual drinking game/OK-if-you-don't-want-to-drink game room for the duration of the evening with games such as Cornhole, Dominoes, 1-4-24, Balderdash, Jenga and more. You are welcome to bring your own games as well or teach people a new drinking game.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Petaluma Convention Chair, Greg Carl at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you out here this weekend!
