It's time to celebrate the holidays and our amazing community on December 12th, at the beautiful Redwood Bowl—located within the homeland of the indigenous Chochenyo people! If you've been to one of our previous celebrations, you know it's filled with food, drink, merriment and reconnecting with old friends and meeting new ones. If you haven't been before, you're in for a treat.
The holiday party is for members only. If you need to renew or become a member you can do that here: https://rainbowsierrans.org/Join-Us
We will provide the main dishes along with some beverages. You can bring your favorite side dish, dessert, and/or beverage of your choice to share. We also ask that you bring your own plate, utensils and cup so we can keep our carbon footprint low.
Like all Rainbow Sierrans outings, camping trips and other events, this is only made possible by the generous spirit of our volunteers!
Please consider helping out in one of these areas:
