    Contact Dwight Shackelford, 707-763-1807
    tshack@silver-bayou.com if you have any questions.


    Some of you may not be aware that CFLFM has begun supporting a fragrance-free dance environment.

    Out of consideration for those who are allergic to scented products (and thereİis more than one person), we ask that you refrain from wearing them to the events we sponsor.

    At most of our events we make no attempt to monitor fragrance use. Instead, we rely on a spirit of cooperation, growing out of a recognition that we all share the air.

    However, certain designated events, particularly those held in Petaluma, will be labelled "Fragrance-Free". At these events, there will an expectation that people will be able to attend without a risk to their health. Knowing that most people still need to get used to this fragrance-free idea, and will sometimes forget, there will be no "cop at the door". However, complaints from other attendees will be taken into consideration. We're playing this by ear and want to keep everyone happy, but the eventual goal of the fragrance-free events is for them to be just that, 100% fragrance-free.

    To save any misuderstanding or inconvenience, please do not wear any scented products to an event labeled Fragrance Free. There are unscented versions of any personal hygiene product you might need, and some may be available at the event for your convenience. Thank you for your cooperation.
