Spirit of Sonoma Awarded to Joe Pelanconi
The Annual Spirit of Sonoma County Award luncheon was held December 9th at the DoubleTree hotel in Rohnert Park. Joe Pelanconi was this year's winner from Geyserville.
This luncheon honors those who contribute to the economic development and enhancement of the communities in which they live, work and conduct business. They are nominated by the various Sonoma County Chambers of Commerce and non-profit groups.
In Joe's own words, he is one of the "Little-Shots", not a one of the "Big Shots", that do a little bit behind the scenes. We think he underestimates himself. But he is right that there are a lot of "Little-Shots" in our community that make things happen in many ways. We are proud that Joe Pelanconi is our winner of the Spirit of Sonoma Award for 2016.
The luncheon was attended by Joe and Sue Pelanconi, our Chamber President, Danielle Alexander and her husband, Scott, as well as past Spirit of Sonoma winners Joel and Kathy Zunino, Ron and Cosette Scheiber, and a group of other freinds, family and supporters. Congratulations Joe!
Collecting Rusty Junk
If you were at the Chamber Dinner in December, you heard that artist Bryan Tedrick has agreed to work on a sculpture that will STAY in the sculpture garden area south of Geyserville. We all loved the coyote and Sir Snort, so there has been much excitement about a new sculpture just for Geyserville.
To accomplish this goal, he will need approximately 6 tons of rusted metal. He is particularly fond of old farm equipment and tools. If you would like to contribute to this great project, please email a photo of your "junk" to Victoria Heiges at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will forward on to Bryan for approval. Any contributions from the community will reduce the end cost for the community. Thank you in advance!
