"Faith and Hope: Our American Land"
Sometimes we forget our nation truly is made up of people in small
and large towns who care deeply about values, about helping our men
and women in uniform, about sharing -- even when they themselves
have little. In this presentation, we will travel across this great
country and visit the towns where volunteering still matters, we
will meet people who make a difference and we will do it on
motorcycles with thousands of veterans as they make their way to the
war memorials in Washington, D.C.
Reservations/payments must be received by January 19, no
payments/walk-in's at the door, thank you

We wanted you to be among the first to be aware that the Historical
Society has released its second book on Costa Mesa History,
covering the years 1940-2003. The book tells the story of Costa Mesa’s
growth from infancy to its coming of age.
The book is available at the Costa Mesa Historical Society, 1870 Anaheim
Ave, 949-631-5918, firstname.lastname@example.org
From the back Cover: Perhaps no one could have foreseen the amazing
transformation of Costa Mesa from a sleepy rancho to today’s bustling
“City of the Arts.” Along with other Orange County cities, Costa Mesa
experienced explosive growth, redevelopment, county bankruptcy, traffic,
and environmental issues. While navigating these events, Costa Mesa
emerged with its own brand of Southern California cityhood
the gift of history and help support the CMHS at the same time!
Lots of books and memorabilia to select from including commemorative plates,
paperweights and SAAAB items, note paper, postcards and out of print items.
And we have many historic photos to choose from for your home, office or
"Costa Mesa My Sweet Home" video
Also still available is our
first book Early Costa Mesa: more info
