I would like to take this opportunity to share with you a number of exciting things that are happening in the Culver City Historical Society.
First of all, through a joint partnership with the Historical Society and West Los Angeles College, spearheaded by the efforts of the community-minded spirit of the College’s Interim President, Frank Quiambao, we now have a room on the West Los Angeles College campus for the Historical Society (see Page One). We will use this facility for sorting and cataloging the Society’s collection of photos and other memorabilia, and it will also provide an opportunity to develop displays which will be exhibited on College and other local venues.
Chair Reba Yudess and her Ways and Means Committee are the force behind the fabulous CCHS throws depicting historical sites in Culver City. They have been an instant hit and if you have not purchased one, you will have the opportunity at the Society’s booth at the upcoming Fiesta La Ballona (see accompanying article). And don’t forget to tell your friends about our annual tours of the City’s historical sites on Saturday, May 19.
The Historical Society is also reorganizing membership and enrollment procedures. You will all be receiving a letter from Julie Lugo Cerra, Membership Chair, shortly explaining the changes.
Finally, we invite you to attend in the Historical Society reception at our new facility at the West Los Angeles College campus on Tuesday, May 22, from 5-7pm.
Your Board of Directors is making a number of advancements in promoting the awareness of the Historical Society and in our efforts to accomplish the goals of the Society. Thank you for your support and we look forward to even greater involvement by more of the members of the Society.
