Costa Mesa has a rich history and the Costa Mesa Historical Society does a great job of informing the public about the past of the city. This weekend the society is hosting a free talk given by Pulitzer Prize Nominee Craig MacDonald called “Incredible Unsung People Who Changed Society for the Better.” This is a great opportunity to learn about exceptional people who impacted Costa Mesa.
MacDonald has done extensive research to prep for his talk and will speak about not only the men, but also the women, who deserve recognition for their part in Costa Mesa’s growth and development. It takes the vision of ALL members of the community for it to thrive. We welcome the positive message that the historical society is sending out about invaluable people who sought to make society better for those who followed them.
For Costa Mesa residents, it’s a huge benefit to have the non-profit Costa Mesa Historical Society as a public resource. It’s a great place for families to spend time together or just to drop in and learn more about the city we call home.
Doors will open for the program on Sunday, February 21, 2010 at 2pm. The admission is free and refreshments will be provided. Let us know if you check out this event… We’d love to hear your thoughts about some of the unsung heroes of Costa Mesa.
