As a community mourns the passing of an incredible individual, it gives us all time to reflect on what we can do to make our community a better place… something that Al Mazza did on a daily basis. Being at the funeral yesterday gave me time to think about what an amazing community we have here in Sonoma Valley. Our community… our children – it’s what we are all here for. Al Mazza gave of himself to make this community a better place and it’s worth taking the time to think about what we can each do as individuals to build a stronger community. Maybe this means volunteering in a classroom or reading a book to a child, or taking a moment to help out at the Boys and Girls Club. Maybe it means becoming a mentor or maybe it means joining our Teacher Support Network. Follow your passion, give to your community, make Al proud.
