You are invited to the celebration of a traditional Latin American holiday that combines pre-Colombian festivals and indigenous traditions with European rituals for honoring the dead. It is celebrated every year at this same time as Halloween and the Christian holy days of All Saints Day and All Souls Day.
In homes, families arrange “ofrendas” or altars. Tables are covered with fruit, flowers, vegetables, bread, candy, candles, incense, photos of the deceased, papel picado (paper cut-outs) represent the sky. Marigold petals are sprinkled to create a path for the spirits to follow on their return.
Please feel free to bring photos of those who have passed over, along with mementos and flowers.
The hall will be open for the honoring of “Dia de los Angelitos” (remembering children who have died) on Tuesday, Nov 1 from Noon-10pm. The BCC will have Pozole and Mexican chocolate available for purchase in the kitchen.
On Wednesday Nov. 2, Dia de los Muertos”, the BCC will be open from noon to 10pm. This day is not a sad time, but one rather of remembering and rejoicing. Musicians are welcome.
Please join us for any or all of the celebration you can. To volunteer: watch over the altar or bake some sweets for the BCC to sell which will help cover the cost of the altar, please call 868-2128 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Plutocracy”, a new musical show by Bolinas composer Dale Polissar,
will premier Friday, Oct. 21, 8 p.m., at the Bolinas Community Center.
Debuting as a “semi-staged concert performance” with five singers and
a narrator, “Plutocracy” imagines what happens when the head of a global
oil corporation dies and, to everyone’s surprise, leaves control of the company
to his young hippy poet son–with a powerful CEO uncle determined to stop
Polissar’s previous musical satirizing the George Bush administration,
“By George, It’s War!”, got standing ovations here and at the Throckmorton
Theater in Mill Valley. Continue reading

Elect To Laugh: 2016 with Will Durst is a brand- new, hysterical, one- man show stalking the presidential election cycle like white on rice. Ably assisted by his trusty overhead projector, this hilarious 80 minute production reflects Durst’s outraged and outrageous sensibilities, accessing the topical through the jugular, as current as Bernie Sanders’ lead staffer’s latest tweet.
Winston Churchill called the American political process a circus wrapped inside a game show covered in poisonous weasel glitter. Well, he should have. And both sides of the partisan aisle can’t help but agree that the 2016 election season has spawned one of the most fertile, febrile and fecund campaigns in history. For mocking and scoffing and taunting purposes, that is. As a source for comedic material it has been an embarrassment of riches. Lush like a tropical rain forest. A cornucopia of delights. Like slam- dunking from a step- ladder. Continue reading

Duxbury Reef Bioblitz: Saturday June 11th, 9 am – 1 pm
In support of the Snapshot Cal Coast initiative, an effort to take a “snapshot” of biodiversity along the entire California Coast during June 4-12, join the California Academy of Sciences for a grassroots, smartphone-powered bioblitz to catalogue every living species we can find at the Duxbury Reef tide pools on Saturday, June 11th!
A bioblitz is an intensive one-day study of biodiversity in a specific location. We’ll look for starfish, crabs, octopus, sea slugs, shorebirds, fish, barnacles, anything!
People of all ages and skill levels are welcome! You bring your curiosity, a smart phone with the iNaturalist app downloaded (or digital camera), and tons of enthusiasm. The Cal Academy will rally some scientists and folks who know the area. Together we’ll make some science! You don’t need to be an expert on tidepool creatures, you just need to observe carefully and take good enough photos with iNaturalist so someone else can identify what you found!
The fun happens during the low tide on Saturday, June 11, starting at 9 am. We’ll explore the reef and document everything we can find for a few hours, then we’ll all come back together at the Bolinas Community Center to upload our observations, see what everyone else found, and get help with IDs.
Find out more information and register for the bioblitz here: https://www.inaturalist.org/
Please join us for a special screening of ‘Screenagers’. Written, produced and directed by two local Fairfax parents, this film explores the impact of screen time on kids AND offers solutions on how we can help our kids find balance. Since launching in January 2016, the film has received non-stop national press – NPR, Good Morning America, ABC 7 News, Dr. Oz, Huffington Post, etc. etc.
We would like to offer the film at no cost to families and community members. We highly encourage parents to view this film with their children (ages 10 and up), tweens, and teens. (This film is even for parents of smaller children – they, too, might one day be influenced by older siblings, video games, social media and ‘screen time’). The recommended ages for viewing are 10 and up.
We hope to spark a community conversation about how to collectively raise our children in a world of snapchatting, instagramming, YouTube, video games, etc. etc. As an added bonus, the Bolinas-Stinson School Foundation has generously provided funds for the Producer of the film, Lisa Tabb, to attend the screening and moderate a post screening discussion. This is an event you won’t want to miss! Continue reading
