Avenidas is working on a $12 million capital campaign to expand programming for seniors at its 450 Bryant historic location.
I suggested, during oral communications of an unusual off-site and progressive public hearing and study session that a much simpler way to add 33 percent usable space for programming would be to open the center on Saturdays and Sundays. I said the same thing in 2010 at Council retreat at Birdland.
Upstairs there is a Palo Alto Hall of Fame worth checking out. My mom and I took a class on historic figures there in 2011 (William Penn and more, I have notes, and drawings I will try to swede in).
Julie Roche, a Paly grad who helped fund-raise a similar project in Mountain View leads the charge.
