This week, PHW has added about 40 photos to the following albums on Flickr. As always, see all the new additions at the beginning of the photostream, or at the end of their respective albums:

Annual Meeting 2016
We would also like to take a moment to congratulate the award recipients pictured in the Annual Meeting 2016 album, as well as two winners who could not join us last Sunday.
Awards of Merit
These awards recognize renovations of houses or buildings that contribute to improving the character of their neighborhoods and maintaining the overall historic fabric of the city.

Winchester Little Theatre
Phase 1 of the Restoration Campaign

Ben Belchic Awards
This award is named in honor of Ben Belchic, a founding member of PHW. Ben Belchic was also an active member of the Winchester-Frederick County Historical Society, so the Belchic award recognizes a significant contribution to understanding Winchester’s history. These awards are generally presented for written texts, such as books, maps, National Register nominations, and guided tours.
Mount Hebron Cemetery
Mount Hebron Cemetery History App
Accepted by John Lewis and George Schember
Bob Hampton and George Schember
Walking in the Footsteps of General Daniel Morgan
Accepted by Bob Hampton and George Schember
This award recognizes a person or business which has been an outstanding supporter of the goals and programs of PHW. This award usually recognizes a financial component (donations, fundraising efforts, etc.)
Museum of the Shenandoah Valley
For ten years of in-kind support of PHW
Accepted by Julie Armel
Lifetime Achievement Awards
This award recognizes a person who has worked for the goals and programs of PHW over many years. Whereas a Henkel Award may recognize a short term, high-impact project, Lifetime Achievements are a recognition of “slow and steady” work for preservation efforts over the long-term.
Katie Rockwood and Patricia Zontine
Presented by Bruce Downing, accepted by Patricia Zontine and Tom Rockwood
The following PHW board members completed their terms this year. Please take a moment to thank them for their service the next time you see them!
