What's New At The Red Victorian B&B
By Amy Stephenson - Published on April 22, 2014.
What's been happening at The Red Victorian B&B since founder Sami Sunchild passed away last year? Turns out, a lot.
The new manager of Sunchild's Peaceful World Foundation and various projects is Heidi Majano. She's been busy going out into the community and using feedback to come up with new programming for the space that honors the foundation that Sami set up back in 1977.
Those new programs include a Going Green event series for kids, which takes place on select Saturdays. So far, kids have learned about planting beans, touched on the concepts of environmental conservation and enjoyed a celebration for the Spring Equinox with traditional music from Oaxaca.
As for grown-up events, you can catch a tango dance class every Sunday. The beginners class goes from 2pm-3pm, and the more advanced Milonguita class takes place from 3pm-6pm. The classes are $10 each.
Heidi has also opened up the Peaceful World Conversations to the public. It's a sort of roundtable designed to "nurture the ability to listen to other points of view" and examine how one's own life and travels affects "the achievement of the kind of world we want for everybody." You can catch those from 9pm-10:30am on Sunday mornings.
They say they've got "big plans" for the coming year, so we'll keep an eye on them. In the meantime, stop in yourself for some peace and love.
Last week the Planning Commission unanimously approved the demolition and redevelopment of 240-250 Church Street, which previously housed 24-hour diner Sparky's, and continues to house decade-old bakery Thorough Bread and Pastry.
