Favorite place to eat: Mazatlan Cafe (125 N. Sacramento St.), because my friend and I have eaten there for 12 to 15 years every Friday night.
Favorite outing: Bird-watching to the far west out on Woodbridge Road. There’s a place where you can see the cranes, but it’s also great for water birds.
One thing not to miss: Lodi Lake is so unique and we are lucky we have it.
A secret outsiders don’t know: You can always find a place to park exactly in front of where you want to go.
Favorite place to browse or shop: I’m a gardener, so I think probably Weigum’s Lodi Nursery (401 N. Ham Lane) or Lowe’s Home Improvement (1389 S. Lower Sacramento Road).
Biggest AAUW contribution to Lodi: We depend upon the people of Lodi to fundraise so we can give middle school girls opportunities to go to science and math summer programs, where they go for a week. And we give scholarships to high school girls. We support women and girls not only in Lodi but nationally as well.
