Oakmont Sunday Symposium


As we close out the first half of our 2020-2021 Season, The Oakmont Sunday Symposium Board would like to reflect back on the challenges and opportunities we experienced as well as to give thanks for the support of our community and our volunteers. We have an exciting line up for part two of our season beginning on January 10, 2021.

We kicked off our 2020-2021 season of Oakmont lectures still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic by continuing to offer pre-recorded lectures from top-notch speakers, albeit on Zoom. Each Sunday morning Oakmonters took to Zoom to “see each other” and to ask questions during a Q&A session with the speaker. All of these presentations are available for viewing on our website. A vast array of topics from Suffragettes, election issues, the Berlin AirLift, Dreams, Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery and Beethoven inspired and informed our audience.

We wish to thank our audience for your continued support – we are accepting donations through the Oakmont Community Foundation earmarked for OSS to cover our costs in securing these online speakers. Please visit their website for more details: http://www.oakmontcommunityfoundation.com/donor-information.html

Beginning on January 10, we will return to our previously scheduled time of 10:30 AM each Sunday – you won’t want to miss out so stay tuned via our website, the OVA E-blast and Nextdoor postings or join our email list for current info: http://oakmontsundaysymposium.org/contact-us.html

Stay safe, stay well, stay informed!
