Local wine festival calls for volunteers
The Mountain View Chamber of Commerce is looking for volunteers to participate at the 50th annual Mountain View Art & Wine Festival, which will be held on Sept. 10 and 11.
Volunteers will work four-and-a-half hour shifts, performing a variety of jobs such as selling tickets, working booths, working the store or art areas and pouring wine.
While the festival encourages anyone of the age of 14 and above to volunteer, minors are not allowed to pour wine in accordance with state laws. The festival asks that volunteers bring a state-issued ID to verify their age.
All volunteers will receive a free 50th Annual Art & Wine Festival T-shirt and are encouraged to sign up through eventbrite.com.

Mountain View Historical Association to host ice cream social on Aug. 7
In celebration of summer and local history, the Mountain View Historical Association will be hosting their first event at the landmark Adobe Hall since 2019 on Sunday, Aug. 7, from 1 to 3 p.m.
The association was established in the mid-1950s in order to preserve the history of Mountain View, going on to document the city’s heritage through archives, artifact collection, plaques, publications and more.
Built in 1934, historic Adobe Hall was Mountain View’s first publicly owned community space, acting as a hub for social gatherings. Due to its cultural significance and Spanish-inspired architecture, the building was the center of a campaign called “Save the Adobe,” which successfully led to a renovation in 2001. Residents can learn more about the rich history of both the building and of the broader Mountain View community at the event, as other local civic organizations will be in attendance to share their history.
The event is free to attend, however, those who wish to enjoy ice cream and financially support the historical association can purchase ice cream tickets here.
