Historical Society Meeting to Focus on CC Family Businesses

SAM_5958The Culver City Historical Society invites its members and the public to a special presentation highlighting one of our community’s enduring families and their iconic business.

As we approach our city’s 100th year it is only fitting to share with you the story of Culver City Flowers. Earl and Virgie (Tinger) Eskridge’s family has a long history of flower shops in Culver City, dating back to 1934.

Join us on Wednesday, July 20, 2016, as the Historical Society’s Vice President of Programs, Hope Parrish, explores the history of a family woven into the fabric of this city, including the formation of Culver City Little League, Culver City Bank, and their connection to Douglas Aircraft Company.

Earl and Virgie have given countless hours as members of the Soroptimists, the Exchange Club, the Elks, and the Historical Society, managing to raise three sons while continuing to be a supportive presence in Culver City. Earl still works with his son, Mike, a member of the Lions Club, at Culver Flowers to brighten our community with beautiful flowers and a friendly smile.

All are welcome to enjoy this free program (which will include a raffle for giveaways including a gift certificate to Culver City Flowers) in the Multipurpose Room of Veterans Memorial Building, 4117 Overland Avenue in Culver City, at 7 p.m. Enter through the Archives and Resource Center from the parking area in the back of the building.
