Le Village - La Note's Network

Since 1997 La Note has serviced the Berkeley community and is thankful for all of the people and companies that have been here for us. Whether it be our in-house, hard-working students, who work while completing their schooling and launching into their careers, or the local artisans whose talents and marks lay in so many subtle details that contribute to making La Note the special place it is today.

As a thank you to all of them, I would like to acknowledge these efforts and give something back by promoting their unique talents and trades, with the hope that you may appreciate them as well.

Thank you,
