Sightseeing and stories

Original post made by John Naber, another community, on Feb 15, 2010

Today was a recovery day, as we eased out of bed for an afternoon of sightseeing. The pleasant surprise was having lunch at USA House with Mike Eruzione. Mike was the Captain of the 1980 Miracle on ice hockey team, and he was in Vancouver a part of Vice President Biden’s delegation. He told us some great stories, including being in the Vice-Presidential caravan and being rear ended by a Royal Canadian escort vehicle. Figure skater Peggy Fleming and bobsledder Vonetta Flowers had to visit the hospital in case of internal injuries. They’re fine, but he joked with Vice President Biden that the State Department better have lots of insurance.

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.
