It has been a pleasure to serve as your President for the past two years, and now it is time to pass the baton of leadership on to your newly elected President, Steve Rose.
In the past two years there have been a number of significant programs and activities promoting the history of Culver City and drawing the community’s attention to the progress of the Historical Society.
The latest example is the Historical Society’s marking of the La Ballona School on Tuesday, November 27th. I wish to specifically thank Sandy Burton, Historic Site Chairperson, and Julie Lugo Cerra, City Historian, for their roles in making this such a wonderful event.
We have secured a room at West Los Angeles College where we can store, identify, and catalog all of the many photos, documents, and other historic artifacts that have been donated to the Society over the years.
We have also written a grant application to develop a Historical Society Museum in the basement of the Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium. We should know if we have been awarded the grant sometime in April of 2002.
I would like to draw your attention to the Historical Society’s installation of your new officers scheduled for Tuesday, January 15, 2002 at 7:00pm at the Sagebrush Cantina in downtown Culver City.
I wish to thank all the members of the Historical Society Board who have served so diligently these past two years and urge all the members of the Society to continue to give your newly elected President, Steve Rose, the same fine support that you have provided me in the past two years.
See you at the installation Dinner on Tuesday, January 15th!
