By Linda Williams

The next Oakmont Cal Alumni Club Dinner will be Aug. 24, at 5 p.m., at the Wild Oak Saddle Club.

The speaker will be local writer and editor at large for the Kenwood Press, Tracy Salcedo. Her presentation will center on her work as a community activist focused on the transformation of the Sonoma Developmental Center.

As a writer and editor, Salcedo is the author of more than 25 guidebooks to destinations in California and Colorado. Her guidebook Hiking Lassen Volcanic National Park won the 2020 National Book Award for Outdoor Adventure Guidebooks.

The cost of the dinner is $50 for members of the Cal Alumni Club and their guests. If you are not a member of the Cal Alumni Club, the cost is $60. Non-Cal Alumni can join as a “Friend of Cal.”

Dues are $20 per year per household. Donations to the Cal Alumni Club scholarship program, which benefits Santa Rosa Junior College students who transfer to Cal (UC Berkeley), and also support the Cal Alumni Association scholarship programs, are also welcome!

Cocktails begin at 5 p.m. and are included in the price. The dinner will feature seared salmon, roasted potatoes, roasted vegetables, and garden salad. Dessert is a lemon bar with whipped cream. There will also be wine on the tables.

Reservations and payment must be received by Friday, Aug. 19. Call Linda Williams at (707) 322-6272 for reservations and payment information.
