The black and white photo you see rotating through the screen tonight is of the Chula Vista City Band, taken in 1911, on the steps of the Herman Hotel. The Chula Vista City Band played for many civic events during the first decade. By 1928, the band had 34 members with James Seebold as conductor. They were paid $50 per month by City Council for weekly concerts. A fan of the Chula Vista City Band was quoted as saying, "It was a good band, the only one in town, and it really packed the people in.”

In honor of the talented musicians of our city’s past and the performers of today, Chula Vista High School’s new performing arts center is set to come alive on March 7 and 8 with the sights and sounds of local musicians and performers as we kick off the centennial with the Chula Vista Centennial Celebration Concert: 10 Decades of Memories, Moments and Milestones.

I Love Chula Vista

As we celebrate our centennial year, Chula Vistans can make time to look back at the past, share the present of 2011, and envision our next 100 years. Both individuals and groups can help build for our future now by volunteering our time for 100 minutes in the centennial year of 2011.

Make a personal commitment to give 100 minutes of community service to Chula Vista and to those who live and work here. Each of us knows someone or someplace in Chula Vista that could benefit from a little extra help – your time as a volunteer can go a long way to make a difference.

100 minutes is just over an hour-and-a-half. Teaming up with your friends, family, congregation, or service organization through volunteering can have an impressive impact by cleaning up neighborhoods, removing graffiti, serving a meal, reading to a child, and hundreds of other ways to help organizations and individuals in need.

Chula Vista is a great place to live. We can make it better by making gifts of our time and talents. Say, “I Love Chula Vista” and pledge to give 100 Minutes of Service to our community during our 100th birthday year.
