Georgia Otterson was welcomed by Tunnel Skilled Nursing and Rehab Center Administrator/Golden Gate Chapter member Starry Hang during a recent visit.

Redwood Empire chapter members welcomed Scott Kiepen with Hooper Lundy & Bookman during the December meeting

Here's two of our CAHF crew (from the Redwood Empire and Golden Gate chapters, plus CAHF staff from Sacramento) taking in a ballgame at AT&T Park Friday, July 13. Giants beat the A's, but a good time was had by all. 

Special thanks to our generous sponsors: U.S. Foods, Singlepoint Insurance Services, LTC Consulting, PharMerica, Affirma Rehabilitation, Suncrest Hospice, Hanson Bridgett, Integro, Burger Rehabilitation, Prevent - A Fire & Safety Consulting Firmand Royal Ambulance.        

We had a great time at this year's RAP session with CDPH on May 24. Pictured here: Redwood Empire CAHF chapter officers Cheryl Cole, Treasurer; Michael Raffee, Education & Associate Chair and Georgia Otterson, President; Dana Forney, CDPH District Manager 1 and staff. 

On December 7, Redwood Empire CAHF Chapter Treasurer Cheryl Cole presented a check for $2,000 on behalf of its members to Sean Anderson, Manager of the Windsor Redwood Credit Union.

The Redwood Credit Union will ensure 100% of this donation find its way to victims of the destructive October firestorms in Sonoma, Lake, Napa, and Mendocino Counties.

It was a very moving time for the chapter and the community at large, but also an opportunity to express hope in future rebuilding efforts in the region.
