HAPPY 2003! As another year passes into history, we in the Culver City Historical Society are very proud of this pas year’s accomplishments and look forward to the events and programs planned for 2003. Many folks have given hours of dedicated time and deserve our thanks for all their hard work.
On Thursday, January 23, 2003, we will premiere our “Living History” Project chaired by Julie Lugo Cerra and Joan Jakubowski (until Joan’s recent resignation due to health issues). Both have worked on vignettes of historic people and moments in the formation of Culver City and the area that is now Culver City. Julie is working with Culver City High School students to present this as an ongoing program that will hopefully grow into a Culver City tradition.
Ways & Means Vice President, Martha Gunther, has chaired the production of our new Historic Note Cards program which is in it’s first printing and proving to be another successful fundraiser for the Society. The proceeds for these cards, along with the extremely successful historic throws chaired by Reba Yudess, are helping to move us closer to our dream of having a Culver City Heritage Museum.
Thanks also to Susan Berg, Marc Wanamaker, Ross Hawkings and Scott Malsin for all the behind-the-scenes work they have given to organize and archive the Society’s collection of memorabilia and artifacts and for computerizing this collection.
Become a part of history – attend the premiere of the Society’s “Living History” at the Sony Black Box Theatre at Culver City High School on January 23rd. See you there!
