On Tuesday, June 20, 2017, Knox Heritage will hold its inaugural Power of Preservation Lunch at Historic Westwood. We are thrilled to share with you that Stephanie Meeks, president and CEO of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, will be our special guest speaker. It promises to be an inspiring occasion as she shares stories of the transformative power of preservation in communities across the country from her new book, The Past and Future City: How Historic Preservation is Reviving America’s Communities.
This new event will celebrate the success of our work across the Knoxville region and tell the inspiring stories of preservation’s impact on the lives of everyone who calls this place home. From the renaissance taking place in downtown Knoxville and the surrounding historic neighborhoods to small towns across our region beginning to incorporate preservation into their plans for the future, Knox Heritage has been on the front lines of preserving our region’s rich past for a vibrant future. More than four decades of Knox Heritage’s hard work is paying off for our city and region and preservation has taken its place as a basic community value.
$100/table of ten. The lunch program will be from 12:30 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. Registration and entertainment begins at noon. We will provide you with an invitation template you can send via email or print and mail to invite your guests to the lunch.
