Presentation: History of Almaden Air Force Station

This popular lecture which has been given at Almaden Park sometimes is being presented at the Cupertino Historical Society.  It's a comfortable venue, with tables and chairs for seating.  Refreshments available.  [Perhaps we should take a couple of contributions this time.]

The Community Center is in a park, so if you are able to arrive earlier you can take a gentle exercise walk in the pleasant environs.

While admission is free, it's really nice to give the historical society a donation.
