Marilyn can be found ringside in the livestock area supporting local youth exhibitors. She is a fierce advocate for local 4-H and FFA members, encourag- ing everyone “to head down to the livestock area and introduce yourself to at least one young person showing, it will be give you hope for the future of agri- culture in Sonoma County.” Marilyn has even found a way to use her skills as a suc- cessful business woman to give back to the local community.

Hi Upbeat! My father and mother deliver your Upbeat Times each month. They are Paul and Cookie Schaffer. They asked us to take a picture of my kids in hopes of you publishing it. Upbeat Times visited Rincon Valley Little League (RVLL) in Santa Rosa with Colin and Abigail Lopez this past July 2018. RVLL has been a part of our lives for 8 years. We have spent endless weekends playing ball, supporting each other on the field, and making lifelong friends. It’s a beautiful baseball park that is a staple of our community. There are many gen- erations of Santa Rosa families who have had the privilege of playing here. Our family is one of them and it’s been amazing watching our kids grow up here!! ~ Courtney and Marc Lopez
