The Menlo Park Historical Association, established nearly 40 years ago in 1971 proudly hosted this event. In addition, special thanks go to the Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce, Caltrain, the City of Menlo Park and many others for their support of this family friendly, community-wide event.
The City of Menlo Park, in preparation for the event, recently painted the Clock Tower. Special thanks is extended to Ruben Nino, Carl Thomas and other members of the Public Works Department. The clock tower looks great and may be seen by nearly 90 trains passing by each day, and by the many passengers coming both to and from the train. The train station is part of what is commonly known as the Menlo Park Transportation Center, which serves the needs of not only train passengers, but is also a hub for bicycles, cars, taxi's and buses.
Respectfully, Jim Lewis, Chair
Clock Tower Celebration Committee
