Welcome Spring (and about time too!)… And welcome to all our new and renewing members!
Just in case we’re not ready to say “goodbye” to cold weather, our next public program will be on the frosty theme of Ice Skating in Culver City , which has quite an illustrious history here. Please read more about that on our front page and the story on page 5.
The Society’s big news this February was the addition of a new Secretary to our Board: the wonderful Donie Nelson. Donie (which rhymes with “pony”) comes to us with copious experience in the world of film and television development for many local production companies, as well as being both a founding and board member of the Genealogical Society of Hispanic America, Southern California Chapter. Donie is also a professional entertainment industry speaker and has already brought her professionalism and cheery manner to our meetings. We’re so happy to have her on board!
We have just applied for a grant through the California Preservation Assessment Project. So keep your fingers crossed! Also this March, Julie Lugo Cerra is beginning her new Docent Training, preparing member volunteers to enlighten our visitors. Do give us a call or email if you’re interested in joining the group.
I look forward to seeing you all on April 17th at our program, if not before during our open hours at the ARC.
