Party Down for Firefighters
If there is one thing Sonoma County residents appreciate, it’s local firefighters. Just look around at the thank-you signs still nailed to telephone phones and planted in yards for proof. For those who wish to support these public servants, there is the 39th Annual Bodega Fire Big Event BBQ. Planned for August 4 in downtown Bodega, the day starts with a short parade at 10:30 a.m., followed by chicken or tri-tip barbecue and live music. The Bohemian Ukelele Group will play 11–11:30 a.m.; Used Goods, 11:30 a.m.–2 p.m.; and the Blue Rock Country Club, 2:30–5:30 p.m. There will also be crafts, raffles, and a silent auction. Admission is free; the barbecue is $10–$15.
