Two for one
Two events to talk about, but only one photo since the batteries on my camera decided to die at an inconvenient moment. Thursday evening was the Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce mixer at Oak Meadow Park, featuring the Red Cross and several of the wineries that make their home in the Santa Cruz Mountains. It was a nice hometown crowd. Then Friday morning was the annual Women’s Equality Day Breakfast sponsored by the Santa Clara County Commission on the Status of Women. Lots of Los Gatos people there in and among the 600 guests. Not sure which gave off more energy – big pots of coffee for the 7 a.m. start time…. or the zesty performance of Folklorico Nacional Juvenil … or the high spirits of the women and men in the room celebrating the 86th anniversary of women winning the right to vote. It’s hard to believe that it took until 1920 for women to have the opportunity to participate in America’s democracy.
