Where the Silicon Valley meets Switzerland
Based on our bylaws, the purpose of the Peninsula Swiss Club is "to offer social gatherings where Swiss citizens and friends of Switzerland can congregate and foster friendly relations and good understanding between the USA and Switzerland in the best traditions of both countries. The club assists parents in upholding the Swiss heritage amongst their children."
The activities of the Peninsula Swiss Club are family oriented. Children born in the USA learn about the heritage of their parents and grandparents, taste traditional Swiss food and experience traditional events like the Samichlaus, Easter Egg Hunt or the August 1st party. In addition, for long-time residents as well as for new immigrants, events like the Fondue Dinner and the Metzgete bring back memories of Switzerland.
