We gained many new members, had outstanding attendance at our quarterly programs–and this year’s annual summer picnic was called the best ever! We’ve also enhanced the ARC, adding new display cabinets along with a movie-viewing section.
To the delight of our visitors, we’ve screened wonderful Laurel and Hardy movies and Our Gang features, all made right here in Culver City at the famous Hal Roach Studios (originally located at Washington & National Blvds.). Come and share the laughter. It’s great fun! And, we also have had photos from the 1950s of the popular Rollerdrome preserved on DVD for viewing as well.
I want to thank all of the Board members and Committee Chairs and volunteers who’ve worked so hard to make the CCHS ARC a destination for many to come and enjoy our city’s past, reminisce a bit of earlier days, and perhaps learn something new. It is also earning a reputation as a valuable and notable site for research needs from around the country.
We are all committed to making 2011 at the ARC an even more pleasurable and informative experience for you and your family.
