November Election


The Secretary of State will begin mailing absentee ballots today. For those who feel more comfortable dropping off their ballots personally, Deva Marie Proto, County Clerk and Registrar of Voters, advised that beginning October 6, there will be ballot boxes available 24/7 at the Rincon Valley Library and Kenwood Fire Station. On election day, November 3, you can still drop your ballot off from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. 

If you wish to vote in person, the Berger Center will be the single polling place in Oakmont. The poll will be open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. October 31 through November 2 and from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on November 3. 

You can track your ballot this year at Where’sMyBallot.com: when your ballot was sent to you by your local elections office, when it is received back from you and processed. 

Emergency Prep


How a house is designed, where it is built, materials used in its construction, landscaping and access all influence survivability during a wildfire.

In this presentation, we will provide information on how to make a home much easier to defend and improve its chances of surviving a wildfire with or without direct firefighting intervention.

Hardening a home to withstand wildland fire exposure does not have to be costly, but it does require an understanding of the exposures your home will experience when threatened by a wildfire. This webinar on wildfire resiliency will increase your understanding of the exposures your home face when threatened by a wildfire and will focus on home hardening projects that will reduce your wildfire risks.

The presentation will be will be at least one hour long and will be a combination of live a presentation and a PowerPoint slide presentation with at least 15 minutes for Q&A.  Join at

Gisela Zebroski 
The Berlin Airlift 

Imagine you and your family are in 1948 Berlin and are struggling to find food after Stalin has blockaded supply routes. Suddenly a mini-parachute from “the enemy” lands in front of you. Daily the Allies dropped 12,941 tons of food and supplies to the people of West Berlin. And then there was Col. Hal Halvorsen in the US Air Force who, with no authorization from his superiors, dropped over 23 tons of candy into East Berlin that helped to create enormous goodwill on both sides of the war. 

Speaker presentations are being pre-recorded and posted on the website http://oakmontsundaysymposium.org. After viewing, join in for a live Q&A at 11 a.m. on the date of the speaker’s talk. No password or specialized software is required to view.
