Here's some good news for a change.
The Menlo Park Historical Association (MPHA) is hosting a celebration for the 25 year anniversary of the construction of the Menlo Park Clock Tower, located on Santa Cruz Avenue, corner of Merrill Street, at the train station.
The 11:00 am to 12 noon, one-hour event will feature several speakers, including Menlo Park Mayor, Kirsten Keith, and representatives from the original donor (Ford Land Company), the architect (Hoover and Associates) and the general contractor (Vance Brown Builders).
In addition, several musicians will entertain. Souvenirs will be available for the first 100 people.
This is billed as a fun-filled, family friendly, community-wide celebration that is free, and open to the general public. No reserverations are necessary.
Thanks to the hard work of the Historical Association during this past year, this event promises to become a historical event in itself.
