In Praise of Felicity

A great international honor was bestowed in 1998 upon the Town of Felicity by Ambassador Jean-Marie Daillet of France – La Medaille des Affaires Etrangeres, the medal of the State Department of France.

The Board of Supervisors of Imperial County has frequently singled the town for recognition. National and international publicity has included articles in National Geographic, Town & Country, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, and scores of publications.

In addition to TV reports in 100 countries over the years, the town was filmed recently by the Discovery Channel.

Information about the Mayor of Felicity is found in Who's Who in America.
