What we're about

We are an all-age group, though a lot of us are Boomers. Originally, our focus was on exploring Santa Clara Valley/Valley of the Heart's Delight/Silicon Valley/ -- visiting local history museums, touring historic neighborhoods, walking and hiking all around the county, and gathering weekly for California History Movie Night.

Since we've seen about everything there is in The Valley of the Heart's Delight over the 9 years since the group started, we now tend to go further afield to get to know the towns and counties around us -- San Francisco, Oakland, Alameda, Danville, Walnut Creek, and more.

We have three big favors to ask of members: please don't sign up if you aren't sure you will show up absent an emergency; PLEASE READ EVENT DESCRIPTIONS CAREFULLY for your own good, so you know what to bring and what to expect, and please make a donation from time to time to organizers to help with Meetup costs.

California History Movie Night

Online event

A delightful evening sharing glimpses of aspects of California history; sometimes laughing, sometimes mourning, always learning. Historic homes, Rose Parade, Sunnyvale's Settlers, Water Wars, Japanese Internment camps, racial issues, Native American stories, Lost Theme Parks, towns you never thought about. Usually, at least once a week we find ourselves wide-mouthed, "Golllyyyy, Sargent Carter, I never thought about that."
