Interest Leads to Passion
The Petaluma Women in Business (WIB) breakfast is a popular monthly event, with networking and a no-host breakfast, and speaker Lyndi Brown sharing how interest leads to passion.
Brown will share how she recognizes opportunity, starts with engagement, breaks new ground, and practices creating balance. In 1985, Brown was hired by the Chamber of Commerce to direct a tourism program, funded by the City of Petaluma, to inform the outside world that Petaluma was truly a special place. What Timemagazine once called a “dusty cow town” soon became known as a “Victorian riverfront town” as cited by Associated Press.
Her current passion is for Village Network of Petaluma, where volunteers and members ages 50+ grow, laugh and rely on each other as they take on the future. Village members are revolutinizing how we think and feel about the opportunities and new interests of the second half of life.
She has led fundraising efforts for SRJC’s Petaluma Campus and Petaluma Arts Center. She was named Rear Admiral of the Petaluma Navy, Petaluma’s Good Egg and Grand Marshal of the Penngrove Celebration Parade. Brown is a columnist for Sonoma County Gazette and a volunteer with Penngrove Social Firemen.
The meeting is open to all. For information, contact Petaluma Area Chamber of Commerce at 762-2785.
