Preservation Greensboro’s 55th Annual Meeting
February 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Approximate Length: 45 minutes to one hour
This meeting serves as Preservation Greensboro’s annual General Membership Meeting that will include election of board and presentation of Preservation Awards. In addition to awards and a community update, attendees will learn more about special new initiatives of the organization.
Dr. Goldie Wells will provide an inspiring Keynote Message. Dr. Wells represents District 2 on Greensboro’s City Council, but before entering politics she took action for historic preservation of our community! Twenty years ago, Dr. Wells partnered with others in the community and Preservation Greensboro to raise a voice for the preservation of Dudley High School, a recognized touchstone to Black history in East Greensboro. Dudley supporters won in their efforts to preserve the high school, and in listing it to the National Register of Historic Places. Dr. Wells served several terms of the Preservation Greensboro Board of Directors, followed by appointment to the Board of Preservation North Carolina. She formulated a plan to add the Golden Frinks House (the home of her father) in Edenton as a State Historic Site representing Civil Rights Era history. Today, she works to represent the concerns of her constituents in Greensboro, and serves as an advocate for economic development through historic preservation.
It is important that members of Preservation Greensboro attend this meeting in order to vote on an exciting slate of new Officers and Directors. We will also review the past year, share exciting ideas for our future, recognize awards, and hear a keynote message. This is a FREE event.
