‘Sis Boom Bah’ brings back high school memories

Calling all Wildcats, past, present and future: You’ve got to see the collection of memorabilia and stories from Los Gatos High School. The exhibit at the New Museum of Los Gatos explores what it has meant to be a Wildcat since the school opened back in 1908. “Sis Boom Bah” highlights the sports, arts, social events and notable alumni of LGHS. Graduate or not, you are sure to appreciate the history. Video interviews of former staff members are something to cheer about! John Miller, LGHS ’74 said, “’Sis Boom Bah’ brought back so many great memories of our generation. The highlight of the exhibits was the art class wall with artwork done by teachers and students. My sister (Melinda) and I were standing at the art wall when she exclaimed, ‘Hey, that’s one of mine!’ Sure enough, it was one of her silkscreen prints she had done way back when!”
“Sis Boom Bah” at the New Museum of Los Gatos is on view through June 30. Open: Wednesday, 1-5 p.m.; Thursday-Sunday, 11a.m.-5 p.m; 106 E. Main St. $6 for adults, Free 18 and under. Numulosgatos.org.

Speaking of notable alums, Saratoga High’s Caroline Coccardi has written a fascinating book about Leonardi da Vinci’s passion for ……knots! Coccardi’s book, “Leonardo’s Knots” celebrates the genius’s 500th anniversary and his ability to combine expertise in the arts and mathematics to create minuscule interlaced wonders. Did you know that Leonardo’s masterpieces such as the “Mona Lisa” and “The Last Supper” feature a knot? Drawing knots was so appealing that Leonardo devoted a lifetime to their exploration. Caroline Coccardi recently gave a talk about her book at the Los Gatos Lions Club.

The internet rumor that Saratoga’s Our Lady of Fatima Villa has closed is false. Saratoga’s longest-running business changed ownership in 2018. From the outside looking in, nothing appears to have changed with the name or signage. However, Kalesta Health Care Group is the new owner-operator and has committed to maintain the community relationships that Our Lady of Fatima residents built over nearly 70 years: the Saratoga Rotary Art Show, the annual Easter Egg Hunt and Halloween Open House. “We want to continue to be a big influence in the community and serve the people of Saratoga,” Scott Clawson of Kalesta said. Stay tuned for updates on this community asset.
