Teen Scouts help the Mill Valley Masketeers by cutting hundreds of t-shirts to make ear ties. Led by local Mill Valley citizen Lee Budish, people from around the community came together like the Scouts, to donate fabric, cut, sew and deliver over 14,000 masks to those in need.
Our SCBWI Region ended the year with a terrific Faire and Holiday Mixer on Dec. 6th! Over 85 members and non-members joined us to learn all about our region and the opportunities, plus we had the greatest food brought by all! The Oakland Library was a wonderful midpoint location for our celebration. Everyone loved the time to ask questions, meet members and the advisory board (leadership volunteers) for our region, and chat it up with all their colleagues and friends. What a terrific celebration.
Without missing a beat, we launched into 2015 with a YA Bootcamp Intensive to be held on 1/10, which is sold out, and a Creative Retreat in Muir Beach on 2/27 (also sold out), plus our Napa County meeting on 1/31 on “Building Character” with YA Author Katherine Longshore (registration now open).
