It has been suggested by many that at least two times a year we feast at the community dinner so as many of us can dine together as possible. So come to our first bobop at the community center Sunday January 18. Please RSVP now firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how many to cook for!
Also if you are keen to cook with us during the day starting around 2PM (or anytime between 2-6PM) please let me know. If you are down to make the community center a warm, home-like space to eat let me know. If you don’t mind helping clean up let me know.

OCEAN WELLNESS // 5 Gyres Stiv Wilson in Conversation with artists Judith Selby Lang & Richard Lang and Marine Debris researcher Kate Bimrose
Moderated by Bruce Bowser
5 Gyres is an ocean conservation non-profit dedicated to the elimination of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans. Gyres form in areas of the ocean where different currents unite in a spiral pattern, often trapping marine debris–much of it plastic. Of the five main gyres, the largest is known as the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch.” Located between California and Hawaii, it is estimated to be between 7-15 million square miles in size–that’s twice the size of the United States! Based on his many excursions to the gyres, 5 Gyres Associate Director Stiv Wilson will share insights on the immensity and global repercussions of marine debris in our oceans and possible solutions for a brighter future. He will be joined by artists Judith Selby Lang and Richard Lang and NOAA’s Gulf of the Farralones National Marine Sanctuary marine debris researcher Kate Bimrose who will share their local knowledge.
Mirta Guzman will have our BIG alter back!
Serving Pozole, Squash Soup and Hot Chocolate!
Sunday 11/2 8:30pm Common Voice Choir will be singing a few songs. Continue reading

Liz Grace: “I am screening three short films I made about my daughter Lily when she was ten, twenty and thirty. I have a rough cut of the fourth film dealing with Lily as she ages and turns fifty. Each film is about fifteen minutes. The first film is set entirely in Bolinas and the fourth has several scenes here.”
“The screening was made possible by a grant from the Stinson-Bolinas Community fund and is a fund raiser. No admission will be charged and anyone who wishes may make a donation. The show begins at seven and should last a little over an hour. The people who worked on the film will be here as will Lily and her brothers.”
