The Buzz from Around the Bend

The Glen Ellen Historical Society is still looking for a home for its growing collection of archives and artifacts. The space would ideally be 200 square feet and must have climate controls for preservation purposes. Have an idea to help them out? Email the Public Information Officer at [email protected] On Jan. 12 it was discovered that someone had kicked in the door of the current location of the Glen Ellen Historical Society archives at Jack London Village. As far as can be told the only item taken was the cashbox, which is kept empty. Increased vandalism and pilfering at the Village since the shutdown has resulted in increased police surveillance, which has proven to be very effective.

Interested in keeping up on the latest regarding the SDC transition? Eldridge for All has recently updated their website at The county SDC Planning Advisory Team website can be found at in the PRMD section. On Saturday, Feb. 27, Captain Gary Johnson of the Sonoma Valley Fire and Rescue Station 5 will be teaching another online All-Hazards Health and Safety Awareness with Basic Fireline Safety. This training is suitable for anyone and is made possible through the efforts of the HALTER Project. Sonoma Valley residents can waive the course fee and attend for free 10 a.m. to 1p.m. To register, visit the TLAR/training tabs. I’m planning to take this course—will I “see” you there?

On that theme, the Glen Ellen Forum’s next monthly meeting will focus on community preparedness with Glen Ellen’s own Julie Atwood (creator of the HALTER Project) as the main presenter. The meeting will be held via Zoom on Monday, Feb. 1 at 6:30 p.m. Links to meetings are up at and will be promoted on the Facebook page.
