Democracy in action

Our Adelante Parent Leaders and volunteer Promotoras hosted a Candidates Forum in Calistoga, in Spanish (with interpretation), on October 20th. Candidates for Supervisor, Mayor, and City Council answered questions including how they would address housing availability and rising rents, lack of affordable food in town, sports complexes for locals, wildfire impacts on farmworkers, equitable wages, and uses for the Calistoga Fairgrounds. After the forum, local residents had an opportunity to meet and talk with the candidates. Election day is coming on November 8th and your voice matters – don’t forget to cast your vote! Check out KQED’s Voter Guide and learn about the key races, available in both English and Spanish.


Día de los Muertos

We celebrated Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in St. Helena on Sunday with a special visit from La Catrina, musical performance by the St. Helena Community Band, singing by Jazmin Oro, and dancing by the Los Diablos Oaxaquenos Del Valle. Nimbus Arts displayed a beautiful Paloma Community Altar which was designed to show reverence for the Paloma, or Dove, and our loved ones who are no longer with us. Community organizations and families displayed photos, foods, flowers, and personal items on altars to honor the life, death, and memories of those who have passed.

Thank you to our amazing staff, volunteers, and generous sponsors who made this event possible: Alan Galbraith - Former Mayor, Jones Family Vineyards - Elaine and Rick Jones, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, The Doctors Company, Damian Maldonado Memorial Foundation, Westamerica Bank, City of St. Helena, and Napa Valley College Upper Valley Campus.
