Exploring Culver City Families and Their Businesses:
The Tinger-Eskridges and Culver City Flowers
Multipurpose Room, Veterans Memorial Building, 7 pm
As we approach our city’s 100th year, it is only fitting to share with you the story of another of our longtime family-owned businesses, Culver City Flowers. Earl and Virgie (Tinger) Eskridge’s family has a long history of flower shops in Culver City, beginning in 1934. Earl and Virgie have together and individually been members and given countess hours to the Soroptimists, the Exchange Club, the Elks, and the Historical Society. Earl continues to work with his son, Mike, member of the Lions Club, at Culver Flowers to brighten our community with beautiful flowers and a friendly smile. They raised three sons in Culver City and continue to be a supportive presence.
Join us on Wednesday, July 20, 2016, to explore the history of this family through a PowerPoint presentation, learn about their dedication and how they are woven into the fabric of this city.
All are welcome to enjoy this free program. Entry is through the Archives and Resource Center from the parking area in the back of the building.
