That's "Piers Dairy" !!!
Edmond Piers, one of the sons of the owner, took his son and I on a delivery trip in his Milk truck when we were youngsters. I remember him giving me an ice cream bar while in the truck just as he stepped out to deliver milk to a house behind Stanford University. Little did I realize that the man standing in the driveway conversing with him was none other than the one President of the the United States, Herbert Hoover, who came over to the truck to say "hello" to us.
Special times in Palo Alto.
There were many.
Topping my list of a favorite was David Packard. So many others also deserving of praise..
The early movements in our town was like no other. We were so fortunate to be living in a time among the greatest minds and explosion of technology~ and we still are all hopeful the future will bring more~

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.
