Portola Valley pioneers
Residents who have lived in Portola Valley for 50 years or more gathered for a party at The Sequoias retirement community on April 3. The event was part of the town's year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of its incorporation. Town historian Nancy Lund described the assembled as "pioneer residents who came for the beauty and rural qualities of the valley and who stayed on to pass on the values of respect for the land and a spirit of volunteerism."
