JLMH Board of Directors Receives Anthemion Award!

On Monday, September 17, 2012, Capital Area Preservation awarded an Anthemion award to the JLMH Board of Directors at Union Tavern in the historic Raleigh Depot. President, Fair Pickel, Vice President, Claudia Brown, Past Presidents, Clare Maddison and Betsy King, and past Board member, Ann Rouse, were on hand to receive the certificate. The award recognizes the Board’s 40 years of stewardship, preservation, and interpretation of the JLMH. Many Colonial Dames have served on the Board over the years.

We would also like to recognize those who have made possible the achievements of the last seven years with their generosity and dedication to the JLMH: architect for the restroom, David Mauer, builder of the restroom and storage building, Greg Paul Builders, and restoration carpenter, Joe Armstrong. Without their hard work and devotion, the facilities would not be in the great condition in which we find them today. Kudos to all!
