Homemade Spaghetti Feed and Baked Goods Auction, was on Friday October 6, 2017! Thanks to all who attended and donated and bid on those scrumptious sweets!  Three $1000 scholarships were given to three wonderful Petaluma graduating high school girls.

Our annual all you can eat Spaghetti Feed and Dessert Auction takes place in early October. Check the website or ask one of our members for the 2009 date in late summer. Our members will be in the kitchen making the homemade sauce, boiling the noodles, tossing the salads, and dishing up some dessert. There will be wine, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages, along with coffee to go with dessert.

Remember to donate your favorite dessert to the auction and or bid on the other delightful donations. We thank you for joining us to raise money for three $1000 scholarships for three local senior girls!

 November 10th 2017 at 6:00 pm to 10:30pm

Hep Cats, Slick Chicks, and GIs, don your vintage togs and get ready to swing, sway and boogie to the big band sounds of the 1940s!

During WWII PWC members were asked by the commander of Hamilton Field Air Force Base if they would host USO dances at their club and provide their daughters as dance partners for some wholesome R&R for his troops. The PWC members were happy to comply. This inspired us to recreate this theme for our newest fundraiser. 1940s attire and WWII Uniforms are encouraged! Look for the vintage jeep marking the entrance to the party.

On the eve of the Veterans Day Parade in downtown Petaluma, the clubhouse will pulse to the rhythms of big band sounds provided by the highly sought after Swing Fever, with Brian Gould and Denise Perrier.

Clueless on the dance floor? Swing dance teacher Bill Gabbert, will show you how it’s done.

Also on the program are: The Stevens Sisters Act who will croon some close harmonies, LynAnn King singing songs from the Golden Era and the Liberty School singers who will open the show with Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.

Simple foods will harken back to the wartime atmosphere.
Enjoy an Aviator Cocktail in the Officers’ Lounge.
Not in a cocktail mood? Beer, wine or non-alcoholic beverages are served canteen style!

Special Attraction: On Display will be uniforms worn by General William Westmoreland, Fleet Admiral Wm Halsey (Flying Tiger) and Lt. General L.B. Puller WWII

All proceeds go to the PWC Restoration Fund to maintain the historic clubhouse.

As it has for over 100 years, the club continues with event rentals, membership events and community activities. The PWC is a 501(c)4 Non-Profit Social Club
