At our August 24, 2023 Membership Meeting, Vencent Valenzuela gave a presentation on the American Red Cross. We are all familiar with the Red Cross but I don't think most of us knew the variety or number of services they provide: Disaster; Biomedical; International; Training; and Services to the Armed Forces. The speaker's presentation is summarized on our Helpful Information tab. Click on American Red Cross presentation to go there.


The purpose for which this organization is formed is to promote and protect the welfare and interests of Sonoma County retired employees in all ways compatible with the public interest.

The methods for attaining these objectives shall be to monitor all actions at federal, state and county levels that might affect our members; join and/or support other organizations formed for similar purposes; create and foster favorable public sentiment; support legislation and/or local resolutions deemed beneficial and oppose those deemed detrimental to the interests of its members or sound government; and disseminate pertinent information to members.

The Association may also perform such other acts and provide such benefits and services as are consistent with its primary purpose.

Your SCARE Board of Directors sincerely hopes that this web site will add a new dimension to our communications with members. In addition to being able to post general information that members can access at any time, it allows us to post urgent news that occurs between our newsletters and General Membership Meetings. We also hope that it will give you a new and easier way to communicate with the Board. We welcome your comments and suggestions!
