      Now is the time and opportunity to built up Hawthorne, and we do have that opportunity.
       
      This morning I went down to the Hawthorne Historical Society at 126th and Grevillea to meet with some of my Leuzinger Classmates of 1974/75 and we had a great time. There is much progress going on in a grass roots fashion in Hawthorne. It's great to see it, and see widening opportunities to contribute to this effort.
       
      More to come.

          I did not know Hawthorne had a historical society. How long has it
          been there?


          Hi Katheryne,

          It's been there for a couple of years now apparently. The building
          it's in is the old Police Station on 126th and Grevillea -- if you go
          down there, park on Grevillea for best access. And do check the hours
          as it is only open two days a week. Most of that building is now
          abandoned but it's earning its keep by being rented as a film set.
          Someone said the city is getting $50,000 annually from just one TV
          show, True Blood. However the large room that is occupied by the
          Hawthorne Historical Society only pays rent of $1 per year.

          I spent a good deal of time chatting with Thierry Lubenec, who served
          as President of the Hawthorne Historical Society last year, but is
          still very active in promoting and developing it. One of the biggest
          challenges they face is getting adequate funding, as this is entirely
          a volunteer effort and not funded by the city.

          There are several ways you can contribute. One way is to become a
          member which is $10.00 a year and they will keep you informed of their
          events and activities. Another way is to donate any sort of
          collectible item relating to Hawthorne such as old photos, so they can
          add them to the display room.

          Another way they are going to raise funds it to set up an eBay site
          and auction off items that have been donated. One fellow donated a set
          of signed baseball playing cards. They also have some CD's signed by
          the original Beach Boys to auction off.

          They hope to eventually raise $20,000 to have an apparently well-known
          artist create a time-line mural of the history of Hawthorne to be
          placed on a blank 110-foot wall there next to the Historical Society
          display room.

          Your first step to getting involved would be to pay them a visit on
          either a Sunday or a Tuesday when they are open. There are more
          details on their website: http://hawthornehistorical.com/

          They also have a Facebook page with lots of pictures of old Hawthorne
          and related history.
