MAPA presents annual festivals in Mentone which feature hand-made arts and crafts, live entertainment, and delicious food. We invite you to come up to the mountain and celebrate with us.
MAPA also publishes The Groundhog, a monthly newspaper which highlights the people, places and events that make Mentone unique. For more information on subscribing, submitting an article, or purchasing advertising, click here.
One of MAPA's key missions is to support local organizations and projects which seek to improve the quality of life in our town. Organizations which have received funding support in the past are involved in a wide variety of programs; these organizations include Moon Lake Community Library, North Lookout Mountain Fire Protection District, Boy Scout Troop 106, Mentone Educational Resources Foundation (MERF), the former Moon Lake School, and DeSoto Rescue Squad, to name just a few.
