Mod: The Castle of Hope has been sold, an era has ended, and Joe Mosca is heading south to a new life in San Diego. In the process taking the dreams of dozens with him. The last vestiges of the Civility Party now lay in tatters, and those who once followed his bright banner of decorum are in despair.
So what can we do to commemorate the final passing of so profound a time? How do we let go of someone whose significance to this community was so remarkable that he had to leave us twice? And without so much as a toodle-oo, a ta-tah or a ciao?
After having given this matter some thought we decided to present you with a bushel basket overflowing with happy memories. Joe Mosca's Top Ten Greatest Moments on the Sierra Madre City Council. Vital video vignettes counted down from Number 10 all the way to Numero Uno. Where sadly it all ends, but only in a way.
Joe may have left and taken the dream with him, but we can still take comfort that yes, we were there to bear witness to it all.
And just in case faulty memories fade, or his many accomplishments are somehow even forgotten, here are videos that can help make it all real again. For us, our children, and those who will follow them on down through the ages.
Always remember. Joe often said that he wanted to make a difference. And here we can say that yes, he did.
