In February the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence from the Russian River Order will talk with us about their organization and the many projects they have planned for this year.  The Sisters are an amazing gift to the west county community and they do a tremendous amount of fund raising for many valuable non-profits in Sonoma County.   We'll also talk with Dr. Tim Seelig who is the conductor of the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus.  The Chorus is celebrating its 40th birthday this year and are planning a trip through the south this fall to educate, inform, and entertain.  Dr. Seelig is a wonderful addition to the Chorus and you won't want to miss our conversation with him.
