The Association presents programs, free and open to everyone, seven times a year. They are typically held on the first Sunday of the month, October through May, at 2 p.m. Because of construction surrounding the Lucie Stern Community Center and Junior Museum this year, meetings will be held in convenient locations in Palo Alto including the Palo Alto Art Center and the Mitchell Park Community Center. Be sure to check the latest edition of the Tall Tree for each month's location.

The programs are videotaped. DVDs of the programs are available at the Cubberley Center, Room K-7. To check one out please see our historian the History Desk.

See our programs on Channel 30. The programs are broadcast on Community Channel 30, on the program "Heritage". You can view them Wednesdays at 8 p.m., Thursdays at 10 a.m., and Saturdays at 1 p.m . Check the Media Center schedule at for additional times and streaming video availability.
