The Association presents programs, free and open to everyone, seven times a year. They are held on the first Sunday of the month, October through December and February through May, at 2 p.m. at the Lucie Stern Community Center, 1305 Middlefield Road , Palo Alto. The programs feature talks on topics relevant to local history. The topics vary - from a program on Eichler homes or a history of the origins of Silicon Valley to a talk by the author of a biography of the novelist Kathleen Norris. Our annual banquet, with speaker, is held in early June.

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.
