La Ultima Parada is being produced by Maria Luisa Colmenarez, Rick Moreno, Barbara Perez-
Diaz and Chris Esparza and its partly sponsored by the San José Woman’s Club.
The San José Woman’s Club is located at 75 S 11th St, San Jose, CA. The San José Woman’s
Club has been a formal organization since 1894, when nine women first gathered to discuss
forming an alliance. In past decades, the building was available only by the referral of a club
member, but today the doors are open to the general public with advance reservation. In 1986 the
building was declared San José Landmark #32. The San José Woman’s Club honored its 100th
anniversary with a celebration in 1994, and the organization continues to serve women and the
community in the new millennium.
