April 24, 2013
Two luncheon meetings will complete our year’s activities. On April 24, we will meet in the UNMC Private Dining Room. The program for the day will be “How Does Your Garden Grow?” This timely presentation will be given by Scott Farrington, Master Gardener and owner of Indian Creek Nursery. Next year’s officers will also be elected at this meeting. Reservations for the luncheon will be made as usual via email.
May 22, 2013
The May 22nd luncheon will take place at Omaha’s beautiful Renaissance Mansion, 39th and Harney Streets. Built in 1913, the home’s architecture is described as “Jacobethan,” a word coined for the mixed national Renaissance revival style popular in England in the late 1820s. The house and its lovely gardens offer a unique setting for our gathering.
Complementing the location is a program by Pat Pixley from the Douglas County Historical Society and curator of the General Crook House. Pat will do what we’re calling “Bring a Treasure,” and she calls “Show & Tell.” Whatever the name, attendees are encouraged to bring in an item for Pat to assess. It could be antique jewelry, a quilt or historic sampler, glass, china, silver, a vintage painted tray, a classic toy – in short just about anything that might be of historical interest. Pat will help identify the item, its care and value.
This year-end event is a self-pay luncheon, and members are encouraged to bring a guest. The menu will feature the Mansion’s “Sunshine Chicken Salad,” rolls, beverages and lemon tart. Wine will be available on a cash basis. A mail-in reservation form is included in this newsletter.
