May 22, 2001 is a date Society members will long remember because it marked the grand opening of the new Historical Society office site at West Los Angeles College. With a location from which to work and meet, we now must begin to sort and catalogue all of the wonderful items we have accumulated over the past 20 years. If you would like to volunteer or have items that you would like to add to the Society’s collection, please call Ross Hawkins, Vice President Museum at (310) 204-6920.
We had a very successful booth at the Fiesta in May, raising additional funds for the Society. Thanks to all who helped staff the booth, and to those who conducted the Historical Society bus tours on Saturday. A special thanks to Julie Lugo Cerra for her efforts in creating the narrative for the tours.
Ongoing discussions for the development of a permanent Culver City Heritage Museum site in the basement of the Culver City Julian Dixon Library continue. More information will be presented at the next General Meeting which will be held at our annual pot luck picnic at Carlson Park on July 17 (see page one).
Your Board of Directors has been working very hard on a number of projects this year and is very excited about the progress the Society is making. We hope you are as well and we encourage you to get involved.
See you at the picnic in July!
