May is Preservation Month , an effort spearheaded by the National Trust for Historic Preservation that began in 1971 as Preservation Week and was expanded to a month-long celebration in 2005. The 2011 Preservation Month theme is Celebrating America's Treasures.
In San Diego, preservation month has been celebrated since 2003 with an annual awards program that recognizes positive contributions to historic preservation in the city. Awards are given to property owners, designers/architects and contractors for exceptional historic resource restoration or rehabilitation projects, to community groups and educators for enhancing our understanding of community history and diversity, and to individuals and agencies for promoting and furthering preservation efforts.
This year’s awards program will be held on Thursday, May 26th, 2011 at 1:00 in the Council Committee Room on the 12th Floor of the City Administration Building located at 202 C Street, San Diego, 92101.
You are invited to join us for a celebration of our rich and important history.
