Historic House Photos Exhibition: Nov. 1, 2017 to Jan. 10, 2018
Our Society member, photographer Gabriel Ibarra, will be showing his 6th Annual Historic Homes Photographic Exhibition from November 1, 2017 to January 10, 2018 at the Santa Clara Senior Center, 1303 Fremont Ave, Santa Clara; open Mon-Thurs 7-7pm, Fri 7-5pm, Sat 9-12 pm.
The Milpitas Historical Society’s yard sale at Kim Parker’s Last Word Ranch on October 7 was a great success, and earned the Society over $600. Enormous thanks is due to all the Society volunteers who donated items, set them up at the sale, staffed the tables, and helped with the cleanup afterwards, especially to Joe Ehardt, who donated the use of his truck and took the time to help a couple who bought a fancy TV screen to set it up and attach to their home system. He also took this photo of the sale, which appeared last week in the Milpitas Post, showing volunteers Joanne Souza, Barbara Bowman, Kraig Bunnell, Harriett McGuire, and Catherine Pelizzari.
