For example: the below program from the Mesa Founders' Day Celebration - 100 Years of Growth and Progress 1878 - 1978. That's right... she has had this program for 32 years!
The good thing about a mother that keeps EVERYTHING is that every now and then something really interesting surfaces... like this program.
The program lists several of the Mesa's Founding Families from 1878 through the turn of the century. My mom put a little red dash next to our family. Do you have family on the list?
