La Mesa Chamber elects new board members

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The La Mesa Chamber of Commerce has announced the following new board members: Brian Altman, CitiBank of La Mesa; Jim Butcher, AAA Imaging; Laurel Cruz, North Island Credit Union; Maggie Eggers, EDCO Disposal; Mike Murphy, American Medical Response; Kyle Nyswonger, Carl Burger Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep-RAM; Willie Williams, Classic Party Rentals. The new board members were sworn in for a two-year term by La Mesa Vice Mayor Mark Arapostathis at the Chamber’s recent holiday party held at the Town and Country Resort Hotel.
