37th Annual Membership Meeting

On Saturday, the museum held it's 37 annual membership meeting. The day was a celebration of our past members. The theme was Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead, and we took the opportunity to honor individuals from the past who lived in the Imperial Valley.

A total of 56 guests joined us for lunch and the general meeting. Three new Board members were voted in for new terms and the membership voted to remove "college" from the legal name of the corporation.

After several more hours of work and the submittal of documents to all manner of government agencies, we will be known as the Imperial Valley Desert Museum Society, Inc..

The Strategic Plan for opening the museum was unveiled and presented.

The meeting ended with the screening of Songs of the Colorado, a wonderful documentary on the traditional songs of the Native peoples of the Imperial Valley. This was followed by a discussion by Preston Arrow-Weed.
