Membership is open to anyone interested. The Society solicits tax deductible donations of any historical merit including documents, pictures, antiques and memorabilia pertaining to Buena Park.
Why should I be a member? Because you understand there must be an organized approach to collect, conserve and convey local history. And without such an organization, pertinent information, artifacts and documentation may be lost forever.
Does my membership matter? Collective concern for our objective of local historical preservation is a potent force to induce government, corporate, and private involvement. Without members, our organization ceases and conservation efforts die.
What do I get as a member? As with most things in life, you get out what you put in. Members who take the role of passive support get satisfaction from enabling our work to continue. Members who take an active role find history comes alive.
How can history come alive? Local history is an ongoing process defined not by dates but by people's lives and accomplishments. You are living local history now. However, academic historians abandon local history to amateur groups like ours.
