President's Note

As we Merchants look back on our 85th year here in the birthplace of Los Angeles, we remember with joy and pride, the celebrations that honor our history and culture.
 
As our founding families came together with                 Mrs. Christine Sterling during the Great Depression in 1930, so, too, we continue to preserve Olvera Street and present many cultural and traditional events. These include Dia de los Muertos, Las Posadas, and Blessing of the Animals, which are a quintessential part of the spirit and development of Los Angeles.
 
Our cherished events have been in full swing because of past support from the City Council of Los Angeles, and we can only maintain them with support from the greater Los Angeles community. With your assistance, we will be successful in protecting these events as a Cultural and Historical Resource, just as we, the Olvera Street Merchants, are designated as a Cultural Resource.
 
On behalf of OSMAF, I would like to thank you in advance for any contribution you make to champion our endeavor. Please feel free to share this information with others, and we hope to see you at one of our many beautiful celebrations! 
 
With Gratitude,
Michael Mariscal
