SAHD Recognized At 2015 Preservation Achievement Award Ceremony

In a ceremony at the Scottish Rite Cathedral on April 8, 2015, the Swiss Avenue Historic District received a special tribute for its pioneering role as the first historic district in the City of Dallas. At the ceremony, David Preziosi, Executive Director of Preservation Dallas said "before the Swiss Avenue Historic District was established in 1973 it was almost destroyed by high-rise development and disinvestment.

Support Your Local Scout!

SAHD resident and Eagle Scout candidate extraordinaire, Vance Holub, has approached our friends at The Friends of the Santa Fe Trail with his proposal to install a rest area under the East Grand Bridge as his official Eagle Scout Project. He is requesting donations to fund a slab, benches, a picnic table, a trashcan, and a water fountain. He is on his way to raising $10,000 for the project. But he needs our help to reach his goal. If you could donate to this worthwhile endeavor, Vance, the Trail and the entire community woul appreciate any amount you can share.

43rd Annual Mother's Day Home Tour

"It's the most wonderful time of the year!" That famous line from a holday song could apply equally to the arrival of Spring and the upcoming 43rd annual Mother's Day Home Tour. The District is grateful to homeowners Lee & Bryan Jones, Sandra and Colin Fite, Michelle and Barry Lovalvo, Risa Weinberger and Mike Carleton, Louise and Tyler Bexley, Rev. Neal and Varita Michell for opening their homes and to Munger Place Church for opening the church sanctuary for the Tour. The Home Tour Committee is making plans for the weekend and soliciting sponsorships and volunteers. Last year's food service vendor in Savage Park, Amazing Caterers, will once again be providing food and beverages in the park throughout the weekend, including the popular Mother's Day Brunch. A full lineup of entertainment in the Park and an interesting roster of speakers for the Speaker's Series at the Aldredge House are also quickly firming up. The Committee encourages everyone to participate in some way on May 7 and 8 - docents are needed for all of the homes, volunteers are always welcome in Savage Park, tour bus ambassadors are needed to act as tour guides on the shuttle buses, and volunteers are needed to help with weekend deliveries of ice, water and ticket brochures to the homes (added bonus here is that the volunteers get to drive around in the street carts we provide!). The Home Tour is the District's only fund raising event of the year and the funds raised are used to pay for extra police patrols in the neighborhood, children's and adult social events during the year, special needs in our neighborhood schools, beautification of the neighborhood (see page 4 regarding the recent renovations at Savage Park). Please help us to make the 43rd annual Mother's Day Home Tour a great success for our neighborhood.
