February 6, 2012 (La Mesa) -- The La Mesa Centennial kicks off on Tuesday, February 14, 2012 from 3:00–3:30 p.m. at the La Mesa Blvd. Trolley Station, where the City Council and Centennial donors will ride a specially wrapped La Mesa Centennial trolley to the Trolley Station. You will be able to remember the event with a free Centennial keepsake that will be given away at the unveiling.
The celebration doesn’t end there, it will continue with a special City Council meeting at 4:00pm in the Council Chambers at 8130 Allison Avenue. This date was selected for the kickoff because one hundred years to the day the first City Council (called Board of Trustees) met to elect the city’s leadership. The meeting will include a presentation of proclamations from government officials and dignitaries. Immediately following the council meeting will be a reception at 5:00pm, outside the council chambers.
