Welcome from the President

Welcome to the AVRM”s long anticipated website arrival.  This will be our HOME until we establish a permanent one.  Until that time comes, and it WILL come, we will continue our exhibition at the AV Fair.  The generosity of our Donors and Volunteers has insured rapid and steady growth.  We have many goals (see the Projects page), and many successes (see Donors, Completed Projects, and Scholarships pages).  I would like to see this museum develop as a Co-Op.  There are a variety of museums in Antelope Valley, as well as several historical societies.  There are also many groups with special historical interests, and uncountable history buffs scattered about the AV.  There are many large businesses and organizations which have had a profound impact on the growth of the AV.  The AV is made up of many communities with distinct and unique contributions to our history.   Our goal is not to compete with any of these groups or individuals, but rather to give them a place to showcase their interests and knowledge.   In 2010 our exhibit included displays on loan and set up by the Rusty Relics, the Lancaster Museum and Art Gallery, and the Borax Mine Visitor Center.  So far for 2011 we will add displays by the AV Indian Museum, the Air Force Flight Test Center Museum from EAFB.  The Antique Automobile Club of America, AV Region has taken on the restoration of the Simi Hay Loader.  We invite and encourage any interested parties to contact us with ideas for this year and future exhibits.  Sincerely, Bill Rawlings President, AVRM Tags:
