PHW’s 48th Annual Meeting on June 10

It is almost time to close our fiscal year at PHW, and the Annual Meeting is our chance to reflect on the past year and look forward to the next with the membership. This year’s Annual Meeting will be held in the Old Post Office at 40 West Piccadilly Street, now the home of New Lifestyles and the Coffee Cellar. The business portion of the meeting begins at 2 p.m. and covers the state of PHW, election of officers and board members, presentation of the 2012 PHW preservation awards, and the announcement of winners from the “Uncovering Your Hidden Gems” architectural photo contest.

Following the meeting, Dr. Kenneth L. Cuave of New Lifestyles will open this impressive building to PHW members for a tour from the basement to the attic, revealing the structure’s changing uses as a post office, a stock-brokerage, a restaurant, a bank, an art gallery, a bridal shop, and the offices of New Lifestyles and the Coffee Cellar. As an alternative to the tour, a light reception will also be held in the Coffee Cellar following the meeting.
