News ItemSanado Club Visits the Park

Feb 3, 2017 –

A group of 30 Sanado members recently visited the SS&TP to learn more about the Park. A presentation was given at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History and concluded with a windshield tour of the Park. Sanado is a women’s social group that began in the 1950s for wives of men employed at Sandia. At that time, the club had around 400 members. Today, there are about 80 members who meet monthly to enjoy lunch and other activities. The name “Sanado” was coined from “San” in Sandia Labs and “ado” from the now-closed Coronado Club.
