Butter & Eggs Day 4.20

Unfortunately, we will not be entering a float in the parade this year. However, it's one of the most fun days of the year, and a great way to spread the word about MLNB. Head down to the parade wearing your MLNB gear and spread awareness! We hope you run into other teammates throughout the day.

Common Ground Events

Common Ground Society serves families who have loved ones with any sort of unique need while also educating the community on how to be inclusive.

What makes CGS unique is that they provide support to families who receive any life changing diagnosis for their child. Their group of almost 1,000 members has varying diagnoses from common diagnoses like Down Syndrome, Autism, and birth complications to more rare diagnoses like Cornelia De Lange and Fragile X Syndrome. There is no specific diagnosis a person must have in order to belong, all are welcome at CGS. This is special because often families who have more rare diagnosis are left feeling isolated with little to no local resources. CGS offers a community for all families so no one is left feeling scared and alone.

One of the ways they support their families and build community is through monthly meetups, find a meetup that meets your needs and attend!

Miracle March Magic

Boy was it fun to level up our basketball skills and compete in a scrimmage at Miracle March Magic. Although the basketball was fun, we think our favorite part was the dance party finale.

Inclusion Festival 5.11

Check out the Inclusion Festival after our games on May 11th!

The Inclusion Festival is a musical festival for people with disabilities, their families, friends, and allies. A day of music, dancing, and art with sensory sensitive spaces and accommodations. Let’s celebrate our unique differences while bringing people together as a community.

While many concert venues, theaters, and art studios have physical access for individuals with disabilities, they are not yet equipped to accommodate sensory or atypical sensitivities. The Inclusion Festival firmly believe that everyone has the right to access education, the arts, and community events, regardless of ability. Their mission is to share a community arts and musical experience that provides a safe and engaging space for education, resources, and celebration!

Homer's Highlights

Meet Alex, and Of Course, Ondre!

Alex, often seen zipping around with his iPod Shuffle playing tunes of reggae and bluegrass, started his journey as a city kid, residing in San Francisco until he was six. Now, at 29 years old, he resides in Petaluma, where he is not only an avid volunteer and dedicated employee but also a well-known community member with an impressive social calendar.

Before diving too far into Alex’s story, it’s crucial we mention his fur-sibling and Canine Companions service dog, Ondre. Over the past 8 years, Ondre has become a cherished member of the family, playing a crucial role in helping Alex build social connections and engage in various activities. Ondre has even gained his own fan club, and whenever Alex shows up without him, colleagues, acquaintances, and even employees at Peet’s, Safeway and Trader Joe’s (whom Alex has befriended) eagerly inquire about Ondre's whereabouts. Ondre is Alex’s second service dog. 

Living at home with his mom, Mary Ann and dad, Art, and  Ondre, Alex has been involved in community volunteering since he was 12 years old. He's been seen delivering meals and holiday treat bags to senior citizens, helping out at local nonprofit farms, and working with his mom and dog, Ondre at Canine Companions special events. Not only does Alex contribute as a volunteer, but he also holds a paid job with O.A.D.S., where he dedicates five days a week to cleaning up local parks. Thank you, Alex, for your valuable contributions to our community!

In his leisure time, Alex enjoys staying active with impressive swimming abilities, achieving a personal record of 200 meters in one stretch. He's also an avid biker, often leaving his aides in the dust due to his need for speed. Additionally, Alex practices batting with Ondre ready to assist in rounding the bases. Furthermore, Alex takes part in the Seawolf Fit program at Sonoma State University, where he refines his other fitness skills. He also enjoys attending Celebrations, an interfaith holiday program for young adults with disabilities and their families. 


One of the things we love most about Alex is his go with the flow mindset, a characteristic not always associated with an autism diagnosis. Nevertheless, Alex is always up to trying new restaurants, a change in schedule, or batting in a new spot in the line up. As November approaches, Alex is gearing up to celebrate the big 3-0! With Alex's passion for trains—having ridden the Skunk Train at least 20 times—Alex’s family is considering yet another fun train trip to celebrate the big day. We know he’s happiest when he’s surrounded by community, family and friends. We can't wait to have you back on the field, Alex!
