Voices from the Garden
In addition to annual updates and business matters, there will be a special presentation by Librarian of Virginia, Sandra Treadway. Ms Treadway serves on the commission for Voices from the Garden. This special monument planned for the Virginia Capitol Square is the first monument of its kind in the nation recognizing the full range of women’s achievements. Voices takes the form of an oval shaped garden that encompasses twelve bronze statues of significant women from the state, surrounded by a glass panel, etched with names of other noteworthy Virginia women. The whole monument is meant to be interactive for the visitor, by walking among the statues, each a work of art, or by using a mobile app to learn more about these women’s achievements and to hear their stories, in many cases through their own words.Members will vote on the slate of board members for 2018. Nominations for the board are open until the evening of the meeting. Specifically, the board has a need for the positions of Secretary and Code Enforcement. The secretary position includes recording and storing minutes of meetings and ordering supplies. The code enforcement director works with residents and city officials, when problems arise, to insure safety and cleanliness of the neighborhood.
