Subject: Houston Public Library Foundation invitation to Clayton Library
Dear Clayton Library Friends,
At May 16th's party, the Houston Public Library Foundation is honoring Susan
Clayton Garwood, the person who made this extraordinary restoration of the
Clayton House, Carriage House, Guest House and gardens possible. She has
worked personally with all of us, and particularly with the Clayton Library
Friends, to achieve this goal. You may recall that the Greater Houston
Preservation Alliance has described the project as the best adaptive re-use
example in the country, and the active participation of many of you was vital
to the outcome.
We know how important it is to Susan that as many of the Clayton Friends as
possible be present, and we are certain that those of you who have worked
alongside her will want to attend. In recognition of your work and her's
the HPLF would like to offer a special ticket price of $50 to the Clayton
Friends, versus the regular ticket price of $250. This price is for the
Friends members only in recognition of your efforts and is not being extended
to any other library groups this year. Because this is HPLF's only fund
raising event this year, we hope that we will have a great turnout by everyone
for the benefit of all of our libraries.
We would particularly like to thank those of you who have volunteered to be
docents and genealogy experts by having you as our guests.
Party in the Stacks is 5:30 - 8 p. m. on Sunday. May 16th.
There will be wonderful food and drink from Melange Fine Cuisine, entertainment
by Yvonne Washington, and of course, tours of the Library and the House.
Lawn Party Attire. Please see details attached, and let us know that you
will be there to make this event a wonderful celebration for Susan and the
Clayton Genealogical Library!
We look forward to being with you! If you have any questions or
need further information, please e-mail me at: Sbischoff@...
