April 3 – “The Laguna de Santa Rosa: History, Mystery, and International Fame,” Dr. Dianne Smith

In 2011, the ancient Laguna de Santa Rosa was declared a Wetland of International Importance by the Ramsar Commission. Yet, many Oakmont residents are unaware that their homes are located in an internationally recognized wetland complex and watershed. Dr. Dianne Smith is the Vice President of the Laguna de Santa Rosa Board, an experienced field anthropologist, and an award winning academic lecturer.

April 10 – “My 30-Year Friendship with Charles ‘Peanuts’ Schulz,” Dean James

Local golf pro Dean James became friends with Santa Rosa’s celebrated cartoonist “Sparky” Schulz some 33 years ago. He will share some of his memories, experiences and photos of the man many of us recognize through his strips, his philanthropy and his love of golf as among the greatest of all time.
