Rohnert Park is celebrating their 50th anniversary with a parade, festival, fireworks and more on Saturday, September 15, 2012. For more details or to learn how to get involved visit

In the meantime you may want to check out a recent Sonoma County Library acquisition – Images of America: Rohnert Park by Tim Danisi and the Rohnert Park Historical Society.

Copies of the Rohnert Park Historical Society newsletter, known as the Rohnert Park Historian, dating from 2000-2002 are available Sonoma County History and Genealogy Library. Subjects mentioned in each newsletter have been entered into the Sonoma County History Index.  It was through the history index that I found a reference to the Steuben School (subject of my last post) in the January-March 2002 issue of the Rohnert Park Historian.

If anyone has more recent additions of the newsletter, we’d gladly accept them as a donation.
