Monthly Luncheon

Westgate Branch 125 meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at the Three Flames Restaurant.

    1547 Meridian Ave., San Jose, CA 95126

    

Executive Board Meeting 10:00AM

Fellowship Hour 11:00AM - Lunch at noon

 


June Speaker:

Mr. Steve Blank will speak on: "The Secret History of Silicon Valley"

Popular belief holds that roots of “Silicon Valley” can be traced to a rather non-descript building located at 391 San Antonio Road in Mountain View. That building was the site of Shockley Semiconductor, where William Shockley and a team of very talented engineers developed the very first silicon based semiconductor in 1956.

Today, there is a sign placed in the front of that building that commemorates that building and the work that occurred there as a key event that led to the start of Silicon Valley.  However, that’s not the accurate story surrounding the start of “Silicon Valley", Mr. Blank will present the "Real Story" at the June luncheon. 

 

May Luncheon:

Four veterans were honored with beautiful handmade quilts provided by the "Quilts of Valor" Foundation (QOVF).

 

Speaking on behalf the the QOVF was Jerilyn Lightfoot who provided the history on the  organization, how each quilt is handmade, and described the dedication of the all volunteer woman & men who sew these "one-of- a -kind quilt". Since 2003, QOVF has become a national roots community service effort, connecting the home-front with our warriors and veterans. "QOV's are stitched with love, prayers, and healing thoughts".The QOV are awarded as a tangible token of appreciation that unequivocally says, "Thank you for your service, sacrifice, and valor". Over 117,500 quilts have been awarded to date. 

Honored at the luncheon were: Jack Feineman, Ed Linn, Bob Ramirez, and Joe Vargas. Each received a personalized lap-sized quilt and it's associated documents.
