The custom of laying wreaths in memory of those who have lost their lives in the sea was begun by Mrs. Armitage Forbes. Mrs. Forbes was instrumental in the creation of The Campo de Cahuenga Memorial Historical Assoication.
The San Fernando Valley, in the heart of the Creative Capital of the World, deserves a great Museum of history and culture.
