SOMETIMES SETTING OUT ON YOUR OWN IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE RISKS.

A few months ago a friend asked me why I was spending so much time trying to establish The Museum of the San Fernando Valley. "Building something as important as a Museum" she said, "without a lot of money or power is a huge risk of your energy!"
She is right, you know.
There are a thousand reasons building our Museum can fail. To begin with, we do live on the Pacific "rim of fire!" And, there is global warming!
I thought for a long time and then said to my friend. "Planning and building a great regional Museum of history and culture for the San Fernando Valley just has to be done! If for no other reason than the ADVENTURE of it.
If you are interested in helping to build our Museum Community for LA and the Valley, and can risk some of your time. Give me a call at (818) 347-9665 .... just for the adventure of it. Jerry Fecht
