The exhibition includes photos, Mid-Century Modern furniture, memorabilia and details on the history of Eichler’s impact on the Bay Area between 1949 and 1974. His grandson, Steven Eichler, curated the display, with graphic design by his wife, Judi.

Los Altos Relay For Life merging with Mtn. View, Sunnyvale, organizer says

Thirteen years ago, the annual Los Altos Relay For Life started with a bang, raising $245,000 for the American Cancer Society. But attendance and fundraising dwindled with each succeeding year. Despite organizers’ best efforts to freshen up the event, last year’s Los Altos Relay raised less than $30,000.

But staunch Relay supporters like Duncan and Jeanne MacVicar of Los Altos are not giving up.
