Hello Members, Friends, and Neighbors,
Here we are, December 2021, saying goodbye to another year! For me, 2021 in comparison to 2020 was so much better and I hope we continue on this path.
2021 was productive for your Historical Society. We are thrilled to have Madisen Matsuura join our Culver City High School internship program. Abigail Cregor and Madisen have been researching and updating exhibits, giving history a fresh look through the eyes of our local youth.
Mark Morris has done it again; he fixed our internet problem! We have gone from slow, a step above dial-up, to a much faster internet service. This upgrade has made researching for all of us fun again! Thank you, Mark and Ken
We reopened to the public with enormous success! We had the Culver City High School class of 1971 reunion as guests, spending time and sharing stories. We also successfully collaborated with Jim Shanman and the Culver City Walk and Rollers, hosting a walking tour of downtown.
October brought back our first in-person program in the beautifully updated Rotunda Room. Marc Wannamaker shared his new book, Hollywood’s Trains & Trolleys. If you missed the program, we are selling his book at the museum, and the program is on our YouTube channel.
Our Museum Committee continues to go through boxes of donated items. A reminder for those who may have free time and love digging into the past, become a volunteer and join us.
In closing, I want to thank all of you, and especially our volunteers, for the dedication and support that you give to our Culver City Historical Society. We are so grateful for the growth that we have had and it’s all because of you!
I want to wish each of you a joyful holiday season and a bright and happy 2022!
