Silicon Valley Gives--May 6, 2014
On Tuesday, May 6, 2014, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of community foundations, Silicon Valley Community Foundation will raise money for local nonprofits through a single online donation platform called Silicon Valley Gives. This event will provide a great way to connect donors to the charitable causes they care about most and encourage them to take action. This 24-hour event will include non-profits in San Benito County, and the Historical Society is already on board. Click on the link below to read more about one of our projects, The Howard Harris Legacy.

Heritage Wall

Become a permanent part of San Benito County history by supporting the Heritage Wall.  By donating to this campaign, you will receive a plaque with the name of a loved one, your family name, or your personal name engraved in a piece of the original Dance Hall board to be permanently displayed in the soon to be rebuilt Dance Hall at the Historic Park.

For more information and to give, visit our Heritage Wall page.

This is a wonderful video showing a downtown parade circa 1942.  See if you can recognize many of the downtown buildings and landmarks.

Of course, if anyone out there has any additional information they would like to share about this parade, please let us know.
