Join us at Pasta Pomodoro!
Pasta Pomodoro is going to be partnering with us Tuesday the 25th and Wednesday the 26th from their open hours of 11am until 9pm. Print a copy of the flier, show it to your server at the Vallejo Pasta Pomodoro and 20% of the bill goes to The Arc-Solano! Wednesday wine is discounted, so is not included in the promotion, but Tuesday it is!  Print the flier found at this link and bring it in! And 'like' us at and share our posts there as well, if you would.  Thanks, all, and we hope to see you there!

Consumer Frank Gillette at The North Bay Regional Center Annual Meeting

   Consumer Frank Gillette telling his life story  at the North Bay Regional Center Annual Meeting about how he turned his life around. After years of trouble, brushes with institutionalization, encounters with the law, and more, Frank has gotten his life on course and has been a part of the Excel group at The Arc-Solano for three months, a measure of sustained self-improvement over the last year.
Annual Meeting, Tuesday, June 18:

The Arc-Solano's Annual Meeting for Members is Tuesday, June 18, 2013 at 7:30. 
We appreciate the Members' constant support and continued interest in the services and events of The Arc-Solano.  The Board of Directors has reviewed The Arc-Solano By-Laws and is attaching updates in the By-Law Language for the Members' consideration.  Two-thirds majority vote of Members attending the Annual Meeting is required to approve these By-Law changes.

As many of you know, Gerry Forcier retired after a 38 year career at the helm of The Arc-Solano.  His many efforts toward achieving our mission are greatly appreciated! He is missed!

The Annual Meeting will also be an opportunity for you to meet Mike Huckins, The Arc-Solano's new Executive Director.  Please join us in welcoming Mike at the Annual Meeting.  There will also be a new show of art from the Art@Arc artists for your enjoyment.
