Symposium returns to Berger on Oct. 3 at 10:30 a.m.


The Oakmont Sunday Symposium (OSS) plans to resume meetings in Berger Center on Oct. 3 while continuing to make them available via Zoom. Although still concerned about the exposure of residents to COVID-19 in any indoor setting, the OSS board recognized that an increasing number of residents wish to attend Symposium lectures in person, said the board president, wearing a mask. Attendance at any indoor meeting in Oakmont facilities requires adherence to safety guidelines from Sonoma County and the Oakmont Village Association that currently include a mask requirement.

The speaker on Oct. 3 will be Heather Irwin, dining editor for the Press Democrat. She will provide an update on how restaurants are doing after a very difficult year and give some tips on all the local restaurants.

On Oct. 10, Oakmont’s own author Yvonne Horn will be talking about her recent book “100 Things to Do in Sonoma County Before You Die.” She will bring copies of her book and will be available for autographs and questions.

And don’t forget Ernie Rose’s Zoom-only program Sept. 26, at 10:30 a.m. He will share a documentary about life in San Quentin and will offer many insights into his long career making documentary films.
