Entitled "A Taste of Wine, A Sip of Water Water and Wine History in Silicon Valley Since 1914," the event featured gourmet food, wine tasting provided by local wineries, and talks by Mary Jo Ignoffo, De Anza history instructor, and Jerold O'Brien, owner, Silver Mountain Vineyards.
Thank you to our many sponsors for this event. Proceeds support student and campus projects that will preserve, document and share our local history.
At the fore is our Silicon Valley Documentation Project (Oral History Project), which links our students directly with De Anza's surrounding communities and helps them and their instructors to capture the stories of people who have made our lives rich with meaning and purpose, but may not otherwise be widely known.
Support for this project allows us to access new technology that will greatly enhance our students' ability to learn how to do this most important work, including the development of a digital repository and interactive mapping databases.
