Hello Members, Friends, and Neighbors,
Hard to believe that it is Fall 2021. I am not sure about you, but this year flew by! Even though we have not been open to the public, we have been very busy inside the Historical Society. I want to thank Clare Denk to aiding us in presenting our first program to the public. It was a wonderful collaboration of shared Culver Theatre history by Eric Sims, Associate General Manager, Center Theatre Group and our Interim Programs Vice-President Clare Denk. But the great surprise was that Mark Morris our Media Archivist, got it up on our YouTube channel in less than 48 hours for everyone to view! Great job, everyone.
Our volunteers have been working hard putting the final touches inside the museum, with a fresh coat of paint, new exhibits, new store items, and a fresh look on the outside too.
We have missed you all so very much and know that there is nothing like being in person, so we have decided to take a stab at doing just that. September 19, 2021 marks our 104th year as an incorporated city, and we at the Culver City Historical Society agreed, what better way to launch our reopening. Please keep an eye on our website for updates, as well continue our practice of the City of Culver City and the Veteran’s Memorial Building protocols for safe public events.
I want to take a moment to thank all of you for your continued support to the Culver City Historical Society. With your contributions our museum committee has made great strides this past eight months, make sure the collection is being preserved properly and entered in our data base. This is very tedious and time-consuming work. Thank you to our museum committee and our most recent volunteers Jack Bommarito, Kathleen McCann, and Abigail Cregor for their dedication to this collection. It truly takes a village!
