colletteOur speaker this week is Collette Michaud, Founder, CEO & Creative Director of the Children’s Museum of Sonoma County. Years ago she drove up from Petaluma to The Flamingo to speak to this Rotary Club about her dream for the young children of Sonoma County. Our program was impressed, mostly because Collette did not pitch the club for donations to her non-profit idea. She answered our questions, thanked us, and went back to Petaluma. And went to work to build her dream into reality. She convinced some mothers & a few business owners to serve on a board. They incorporated in 2005. Interviews appeared in the local newspapers, and she shared her dream, generated some contributions, and never stopped working. If you don’t know what happened next, do not miss this Wednesday’s Rotary presentation and see what perseverance and patience can accomplish.
