KATIE FLECK

COMMUNITY LIASON

We moved into Petaluma on Butter and Eggs Day in 2013, and have enjoyed the small town community ever since! We enjoy hiking and going to the beach as a family. The Petaluma Mothers’ Club has provided so many wonderful opportunities to connect with other families and give back to the community. My favorite tip: if you enjoy going to the park or on a hike, always feel free to post about it in the playgroup year to see what other friends you can meet.
