Wonderful story! Let's bring clods back!
I also miss the great ice cream store we use to have in Town and Country
Shopping center. I don't remember the name, but it was a eat in kind of place, with great hot fudge sundaes and fantastic lemonade, made out of real lemons. My children and I would always stop there for a drink before or after the Stanford Football games.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
