It has been just about a week since PHW announced Memberfest and launched the Membership Signup Campaign. We’ve already received some new member signups at the office — thank you very much! Remember, the more members you sign up, the better your chances are for winning the grand prize, a framed print of Edward Beyer’s “A View of Winchester” or $300 in store credit to the EBS Gallery. If you haven’t started yet, don’t worry! The signup contest runs until December 7, so you have plenty of time.
We also have a bit more information on the special table which will be available as a door prize at Memberfest on Nov. 2 at Eugene B. Smith’s Gallery. This table is made from reclaimed wood from the Winchester Historic District. The table legs were made from an oak rafter from 507 S. Loudoun St. The table top was made from a board and batten door of heart pine from 427 N. Loudoun St., while the table skirt was made from a heart pine doorjamb from 201 S. Braddock St. Tommy Beavers of Beavers Carpentry and Nancy Murphy have been working on this project for us. We’ll be sure to share pictures of the finished table when they’re available.
