Records indicate that the Monta Loma Neighborhood Association was organized in 1977, so we are looking for ways to observe its fortieth anniversary. One suggestion is to add a special sticker to the name tags of attendees at Ice Cream Social who were living in Monta Loma then. If you are a 40-year resident, please mention it to the staff at the welcome table or contact us.

Another suggestion is to list the names of our 40-year residents in the next newsletter (with their permission, of course). If you are, or know, one of these, or have other ideas about how we can celebrate this anniversary, please contact us.

We have a copy of the “Interested in meeting further” sign-up list dated June 1977. More than 90 residents signed its five pages at what we think was the first MLNA meeting. A copy of the list will be at the Monta Loma History table at the Ice Cream Social, but if you’d like to see it before then, contact us.

Do you have items to contribute to our collection of Monta Loma history? If so, you can bring them to the Monta Loma History table at the Ice Cream Social or contact us.
