   The Capitol Furnishings Preservation Committee reminds you to:

 

 SAVE THE DATE!   

February 25, 2014
Annual Founders' Day Reception and Auction
5:30 - 7:00 p.m., Governor's Mansion
Suggested donation $25

 

Come and enjoy food, drinks and fun.  Examine and bid on a wide variety of silent auction items. Bring a friend and spend the evening meeting new friends.

 

The Preservation Committee does not receive any direct state appropriations.  The effort to maintain and restore historic furniture pieces in the capitol buildings is helped by a portion of the financial proceeds from sales of the state seal and purchases made at the Legislative Gift Center, but the greatest source of support comes from private contributions.  Please set aside February 25th to come and be a part of this valued work.

 

The current project of the Committee is the restoration of the leather chairs in the Governor's Conference Room.  In several phases, we are repairing, restoring, and reupholstering the three sets of chairs.  (The large and small tables in the Governor’s Conference Room have already been restored.)  Your generosity will help that project be completed more swiftly and beautifully!
