Dear Friends,


2014 has been a terrific year for History San Jos�! As we approach the New Year, I want to thank all of our Members, volunteers, donors and

Our 2014 Heritage Holiday Tea - a sold-out success for the fourth year in a row!
supporters. History Park, with 14 acres and 32 historic structures; the Collection Center with half a million artifacts; the Peralta Adobe-Fallon House Historic Site; thousands of school children, and with more than 100,000 visitors - it takes a small army to keep it all running!

So thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued and future support of this unique and wonderful Museum!


We have just one event left this year - the Children's Holiday Festival with our Member Appreciation Decadent Dessert Reception. Please join us tomorrowDecember 13, from noon to 4pm.


I'll see you there!
