Thousands of folks and families gathered for the 2012 Almaden Valley Art & Wine Festival sponsored by the Almaden Valley Women’s Club. And For a couple of years now SJAA has been apart of the festival.
Below are some pics of SJAA at the event starting off with Ed Wong (Left) talking with a patron.


These two girls took time out from their practice for their dance show to see the surface of sun in H-alpha. That got the whole gang to come over and take a look.
