Thinking Local First this holiday shopping season
Our "Shop Sonoma Valley" promotion is in full swing, encouraging Valley residents to Think Local First for their shopping needs during the holiday season and throughout the year.  View the Shop Sonoma video to learn more about the many ways that residents and the entire community benefit; search for local specials on facebook using the #shopsonoma hashtag; and look for a City proclamation naming the Thanksgiving weekend as "SHOP SONOMA DAYS".   Our Chamber members are ready to help make gift shopping a pleasure with unique gifts and a friendly smile... then give yourself the gift of a glass of local wine or a great meal with friends to celebrate the season.

The Chamber and the City of Sonoma are teaming up to host Santa for a special visit on Friday, December 6.  Join us at City Hall at 5 p.m. for hot chocolate and some special entertainment.  Santa arrives on the antique fire engine at 5:30 p.m. to greet the kids, and afterward families can head over to the Sebastiani Theatre for a special showing of "Frozen".

One of the best ways to "Think Local First" this holiday season is to support those in need. 
This year is the first year that Sonoma’s nonprofits will be coordinating with Sonoma Valley F.I.S.H. to ensure that the neediest in the community will experience the joys of the season through a holiday giving program to families and those with no family.  For details on the Adopt A Family Program visit fishadoptafamily.org.  To learn more, contact Cathy Gorham at Rabobank at 933-3090.
