NOTE: OAS IS MEETING IN LIVERMORE!
Come and join us for our annual holiday cookie exchange and more! Once again as in years’ past, we are inviting members to bring ten of their favorite photo images slides to share. Please have your photos on a flash drive.
This fun-filled evening first begins with a short presentation on the John Muir Land Trust’s (JMLT) current campaign to preserve and permanently protect Almond Ranch, a 281-acre open space land south of downtown Martinez.
After this special visual treat, and our members’ photos, our traditional annual holiday Cookie Exchange will follow as we socialize. If you would like to bring a plate of cookies and copies of your recipe, it would be great. However, all are welcome to attend whether you bring delicious cookies or not. There are always plenty of cookies to go around!
Our speakers from JMLT are Krista Vossekuil and Hannah Hodgson. Krista has worked for various Bay Area nonprofits over a decade and currently works as Associate Director of Development and Communications with JMLT where she oversees institutional giving, community engagement, and supports individual giving as well as marketing efforts. Krista graduated from the University of California, Davis with a Bachelor’s Degrees in English and Political Science, and a minor in Women and Gender Studies. She lives in Martinez and in her spare time enjoys birding, hiking, and spending quality time with friends.
Hannah Hodgson spearheads JMLT’s community programs: connecting people with natural habitats, and inspiring people to become ambassadors to protect open spaces. Hannah graduated from U.C. Santa Cruz with a B.A. in Community Studies with a focus in Economic Justice and a certificate in Experiential Leadership. A Martinez native, she first fell in love with nature in the oak grasslands and continues to live on a small Martinez horse ranch with her family.
