Down By the Station as We Honor Rod Diridon, Sr.
Thursday, October 6, 2022 at History Park
History San José is delighted to announce that this year’s 2022 Valley of Heart’s Delight honoree will be our very own Rod Diridon, Sr.! His dedication to preserving the Valley’s railroad history while simultaneously creating the Valley Transportation Authority is a great example of how the past can influence the present.
Please join us on Thursday, October 6, 2022, 5:30-9:30 pm at History Park as we honor Rod and his transportation legacy.
This major fundraiser allows History San José to offer free and low-cost programming for our many school programs that serve more than 10,000 students each year, and our cultural events for the over 100,000 visitors who engage in our hands-on experiences and activities.
We hope you share History San José’s vision of preserving and celebrating our local history and will help us in honoring Rod by purchasing tickets or becoming an event sponsor for our 2022 Valley of Heart’s Delight fundraiser.
Your contribution will help us maintain History San José’s position as one of the leading cultural institutions in Northern California.
Be casual and comfortable! This event is held outdoors in History Park.
