erty. Increasingly, more home- bound seniors are receiving a hot meal (and daily secu- rity check) every day from our Meals on Wheels program. The number of seniors, families and individuals in Petaluma who are “food insecure” is astonish- ing.

Our event was a tremendous success last year – over 450 individuals and 30 companies hosted pottery bowl painting parties, to create hundreds of bowls for the event. It’s that time again, we are asking you to host a pottery bowl paint- ing party for your friends or colleagues. We will bring the bisque-fired pottery bowls and the glazes to your business or home for you to paint and then donate to the sale. Our Execu- tive Director will join you and your guests to share about PPSC and our programs. All of the bowls from your party will be fired by our partner studio and then auctioned at the 1,000 Petaluma Bowls event in No- vember. Here is where the fun starts;

you and your friends invite others to come to the event and buy yours or anyone else’s bowl. We want it to be a fun way to share with each other while helping us fill the bowls of so many hungry people in Petaluma. The event will be on Friday, November 23rd at Hotel Peta- luma. We hope to have 1,000 handmade pottery bowls for this event. There will be great food, entertainment and a lot of really great pottery created by some of the Bay Area’s best clay and glass artists and stu- dios, and by people in our com- munity. Now imagine 1,000 smiling faces. With the sale of each bowl at our event, we will be able to expand our programs to better support these families and individuals.

If you want to host a party, please pick a date, (or two), in October or November and email us at 1000PetalumaBowls@ We will send you a draft invite to share with your friends. Please call if you have questions.

Hi Paul, I am submitting the following “quiptoons,” by my late father Robert E. Whit- field, Sr., for publication. Thanks for considering his original quotations! ~Joanne Whitfield of Sonoma County.

“The difference between a plus and a minus is one more stroke.”

“The stars shine brightest during the darkest hours.” -- “Just because life is a puzzle, you need not go to pieces.”

“Happiness is a form of optimism.”

“Mud thrown is ground lost.” ”Summon your wits before you throw fits.”

“To belittle is to be little.” ”There are two times in partic- ular when not to give anyone advice; one is when they really need it, and the second is when they don’t need it.” ”There is far more honor in writing one classic than in reading a hundred.” ”Fill the days full to be fulfilled.”

”Who won’t take a chance seldom has one.”

”Kindness is a good teacher.” ”You can never be more suc- cessful than ‘being yourself.’” ”Unlock your heart and throw away the key.”

“Don’t let the other guy’s ‘beef’ get you into a stew.” “The ‘live wire’ is loaded with what’s current.”

P.S. I enjoyed the current issue, especially the great article on talking too much, being excited and curious about life!

Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom. Francis Bacon
