The Giving Tree
Dear Friends of Forestville,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for remembering our children from the Sonoma County Family, Youth, and Children’s Family Maintenance Program (Child Protective Services). Many of the children we serve are homeless, live in poverty, and have been neglected and/ or abused. During the previous holiday seasons, the community members of Forestville have cheerfully come forward to participate in the Forestville Giving Tree Project to donate Christmas gifts for the children. On behalf of our families and agency social workers, I send thanks and gratitude to all of you, for your kindness and generosity to the children we serve. My sister, Celeste Reimann and I look forward to meeting with you at the Front Street Hair Studio this Holiday season to celebrate the Forestville Giving Tree Project. Please contact Celeste at 887-2556 for more information. Since 1998 your support has been a heartfelt welcome. If you would like to continue to help brighten a childs holiday, please come and choose an angel from the Giving Tree at 6681 Front Street in Forestville starting November 27th 2009. Deadline for Giving Tree gifts are December 23rd 2009. A new unwrapped toy or donations for Christmas Trees will also be appreciated. Thank You.

Nightingale Breads has been awarded several Gold Medals for their wood fired hearth breads in Sonoma County’s Annual Harvest Fair Competition.

The new bakery in Forestville, Nightingale Breads is all the buzz about town these days. Locals and tourists alike are spreading the word about the outstanding breads being made right in the heart of Forestville. Owner/baker Beth Thorp realized a dream when she opened Nightingale Breads a week before Christmas last year. The bakery is becoming exceedingly popular among the local towns’ people, chefs and food enthusiasts.

Baked fresh four days a week, the menu of European-style hearth breads is a classic sweet French baguette, a Sourdough Batard, a Seeded Multi Grain and a Rosemary Focaccia. Two types of sliced sandwich loaves are available daily as well. On Wednesdays a Rye bread is featured for rye lovers and on Saturdays an Epi baguette is a popular sale and unique at that! Local artisan cheeses, jams and vinegars are also available on the shelves.

Customers are planning their meals and celebrations around the bread. Most rave that they can’t get the bread out the door before they rip into it. Three Frenchmen who frequent the bakery say that the baguette (appropriately named Forestville French) is reminiscent of those they’ve eaten in France. Many people agree it is a new “jewel” of the county. Nightingale Breads invites you to come in and smell the aroma of freshly baked breads.
