I hope this note finds you and your family enjoying the wonderful delights and scents of the holidays.
Your Historical Society had a busy 2013, and we hope you will enjoy our “Year in Review” section. Our annual picnic, the 100th Anniversary of Harry Culver’s speech at the California Club, marker cleanings, Fiesta fun, and more!
We started a little experiment in September, changing our public open hours in the hopes of accommodating more of our members and the public, and not competing with Saturday parking congestion at Veterans Memorial Building. The experiment succeeded on every point, and the Museum Committee enthusiastically voted to change our hours permanently. Come visit us on the first and third Sundays from 1:00-3:00pm!
I hope to see you at the installation of new officers on Wednesday evening, January 15. While I have learned a lot in this “dry run,” being your president for the last six months to complete Louise Coffey-Webb’s term, I am looking forward to the next two years. As you may know, my family has lived in Culver City for several years and quite a few generations, so to be a part of this organization and contribute to its growth in any small way, is a privilege because this is my home.
To close, there are no words to properly to thank the 2012-14 board. I have truly appreciated its support, encouraging smiles, and individual talents. We have some folks who are rotating off, and new ones joining us in the upcoming term. All of them making lasting footprints with their important contributions, integral to this group’s growth, and I am very grateful.
Sending you my best for a happy New Year, and as always, thank you for supporting your Culver City Historical Society!
