THE STORY: This medal commemorates the 100th anniversary of the building of the Rogers Memorial
Fountain. The fountain was built by Mrs. Rogers as a memorial to her son who died after a short illness in his youth. The
fountain was originally built in the center of the intersection of 10th and I Streets in Modesto. It was designed to be fountain
for both horses and people. With the advent of the automobile. the fountain was moved several times and eventually dismantled
and placed in the Modesto City Corporation Yard. The medal depicts the fountain as it looked upon its completion.
