At last Tuesday’s City Council Meeting, Mayor Ray Mueller presented the Menlo Park Historical Association with a proclamation recognizing its accomplishments since 1971 in preserving the history of Menlo Park and in making its archived materials available to the public, including through its website
Most recently the Association was instrumental in the creation of the Friendship Agreement between Menlo Park and Galway City, Ireland, signed October 17, 2013. The full proclamation can be viewed online. After the presentation, the Council and MPHA Board Members and friends gathered in front of the Council’s dais.
