Tonight: Menlo Park historian to be commended

 

Frank Helfrich, long-time Menlo Park resident and keeper of town history, was tapped for a commendation from the City Council on May 22 for "his dedication in preserving the history of Menlo Park." Mr. Helfrich has lived in Menlo Park for more than 80 years and volunteers with the Menlo Park Historical Association, a nonprofit organization that has archived the town's memories for nearly four decades.

Volunteering for nearly thirty years for the preservation and promotion of Menlo Park history is an amazing accomplishment and committment to the City and the community. Congratulations are certainly in order. I imagine few citizens can match this amazing accomplishment. Menlo Park is fortunate to have this "go to" guy available to the general public that has personally witnessed nearly 83 years of Menlo Park activity.
