Hewlett Packard brought a group of 140 software developers to our comfortable conference center for a couple days of innovation, creativity and team building. There were a few organized activities, then the participants were on their own to share their passion with fellow attendees. One participant gave a painting workshop, then had his students paint together. They completed a beautiful painting in just over an hour.Participants could join as many or as few workshops they wanted. Post-it art was new to me! I'm not quite sure about the theme of this workshop, but they put together some nice portraits. I recognize Homer Simpson! Participants were free to join as many workshops they liked or hike, boat, or just relax in the sun. Hewlett Packard also planned fun social events including a beach bonfire with s'mores and a drum circle on the first night. On their second night, volunteers from the group worked together to prepare their culinary specialties and provide dinner for the entire group. The event was a huge success and Hewlett Packard plans to return in the spring or fall of 2011 for more creativity and innovation on Fallen Leaf Lake.
The fountain is our store. We no longer have fountain drinks in the fountain, but the name stuck. The fountain is really more than a store, it's the espresso bar in the morning, place to shop for sundries and needed items during the day and a pub in the evening serving wine and beer.Kristin Janson, fountain manager, has the fountain stocked with a wide selection of T-shirts to commemorate your trip to Fallen Leaf Lake. In line with our efforts to lessen our impact on the environment, we have a number of environmentally friendly T-shirts made from recycled material. The shirts are comfortable and cute! If you are attending a meeting or event, we have fresh brewed coffee available all day. For those who need a stronger dose of caffeine, you can purchase an espresso drink in the fountain. We use locally roasted Alpen Sierra coffee to make our delicious, frothy pick-me-ups. If you need a cold beverage, the fountain has traditional sodas, bottled juices, sparking and bottled water. During the evening, the fountain serves microbrew, domestic and imported beers plus an excellent selection of wine from Stanford-affiliated vineyards and wineries. The fountain also sells snacks including candy and trail bars plus delicious, freshly popped popcorn. Once you have your treat, the fountain deck is a relaxing place to sit for a few minutes and enjoy the spectacular view. Your group coordinator will designate hours of operation for the fountain during your conference or event. If there is something special you would like to see in the fountain, please let us know!
