La Mesa Woman’s Club Celebrates 119 Years of Service

The La Mesa Woman’s Club was established in 1902 and is the oldest service organization in La Mesa. They are a dedicated group of ladies that volunteer to make lives better for those near and far. They were instrumental in the incorporation of the City of La Mesa, led the way to the start of the La Mesa Library, provide funding and scholarships for youth, help veterans, develop programs within the school district and more! On Monday, May 17th they celebrated their 119-year anniversary with great fanfare and awards and refreshments. Certificates of appreciation were presented by Andrew Hayes, representing Senator Brian Jones and Mayor Mark Arapostathis and the City of La Mesa and the La Mesa Chamber of Commerce presented by President & CEO Mary England. The amazing fact is that these dedicated ladies included in this celebration an opportunity for folks to donate diapers to be given to active military duty junior enlisted families. They collected 3,498 diapers, baby outfits, 27 pre-school books and more! We wish them another 119 years and thank them for their commitment and dedication to our community!
