Preservation Awards Night a big success

The presentation of the Society’s Daniel Campbell Preservation Awards took place on Thursday, February 16 at the Porch Club.

That night each of five presenters gave an overview of their respective projects as they narrated a prepared PowerPoint slide show illustrated with before and after photos, various vintage maps, newspaper articles and ads, and some web links to more content.

This version also includes several candid shots, Dan Campbell’s printed remarks, and Michael Cattell’s poem at the end.

HSR President Mrs. Phyllis Rodgers sums it up this way:

Our Preservation Night turned out to be a big success. The presenters all did a great job, and it was so nice to have Dan Campbell’s daughters present to read his comments and help give out the awards.

The attendance was wonderful – about 60, with many new faces.

Everything just flowed together and was beautifully topped off with Michael Cattell’s amazing Then & Now video and poem about Riverton, and of course, the beautiful cake!

Thank you to all who helped with the set up and take down.

Out next program will be March 23, at 7 pm, at the Library – The Golden Age of Silent Film & Hollywood Regency by Kate Butler.

Best to all,
