Dear Members and Friends,
Happy Spring! I shy away from commenting in print the lack of materialization that was supposed to be the El Niño, for fear of a deluge by the time this newsletter goes to print. But, our umbrellas are for sale (and 25% off!) should such an occasion arise!
Thank you to those who attended the Installation Dinner on January 20. I hope that you will have the chance to meet our newest board members very soon – Ellen and Arthur Litman, co-Vice Presidents of Museum/Archives; Janet Chabola, VP of Development; Ryan Vincent, a classmate of mine from Culver City High School and our new communications chair; and Denice Renteria, costumes chair.
You will also notice our first ad in this issue. At the end of last year, we began to offer space in this newsletter for our members to submit advertisements. 500 newsletters are printed each quarter and are widely distributed. Ads (printed in black and white) cost $150 for 1/6-page (horizontal or vertical, approximately 4-1/2” x 2-3/8”), one ad per issue will be featured, and are available on a first-come, first-reserved basis. Any questions on ad specifications or to make reservations, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Placing an advertisement can enhance your visibility with our membership, and city at large.
I look forward to sharing more of our plans to celebrate our city’s centennial as they start to take shape. Visit our website and like or follow us on the social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) to keep connected with us!
Thank you for your support of your Historical Society!
