It is nice to see the Peery foundation recognized. They have been mostly silent partners in a wide variety of public/private works around town that provide many services to our children. Thanks to the Peery family.

I have taken my children and now grandchildren to this little jewel of Palo Alto, but even "jewels" need sprucing up from time to time. I'm so grateful to the Peery family and their selfless and generous donations to keep the Peninsula the special place that it is.

Many thanks to the Peery family for their generosity!

This should be a model for many of our beloved institutions in Palo Alto, including the Children's Theater. The City provides the building, private contributions take care of the rest.

Wasn't there a major remodel just a few years ago when they installed that goofy sign?
