“The Beverly Hills Historical Society launches its official City centennial video project, ‘Beverly Hills: 100 YEARS, 100 STORIES,’ during the Spring Beverly Hills artSHOW, May 18 and 19, 2013, at its table at Beverly Drive & Park Way (under the giant Moreton Bay fig tree).”

BEVERLY HILLS (May 10, 2013) -- The Beverly Hills Historical Society invites all with memories of Beverly Hills to be a part of Beverly Hills history by contributing stories, home movies and videos, and personal memorabilia of the City’s history to be preserved digitally in its official video project in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the incorporation of the City of Beverly Hills.

The project, “Beverly Hills: 100 Years, 100 Stories,” launches during the Spring Beverly Hills artSHOW, May 18 and 19, 2013, at the Society’s table at Beverly Drive and Park Way (under the giant tree) in Beverly Gardens Park. Potential contributors can register to be interviewed during the weekend event.

The Society seeks to create an oral and visual history of the City from the people who lived it. This ongoing series will tell the story of Beverly Hills through eyewitness interviews, memorabilia, vintage photographs, newsreels, and home movies and videos. 

All sorts of information and material are sought. Project coordinator Phil Savenick explains, “We want to record great personal stories about Beverly Hills. Experiences can range from memories of inspirational teachers to long lost favorite shops and restaurants, favorite party places and events to the anticipation of visiting Uncle Bernie’s lemonade tree or having a burger and Susie Qs at Delores’ Drive-in. Tell us what everyone should know about the first 100 years of Beverly Hills that only you know.”
