Construction and Fundraising Continues!

March 19, 2019 6:33 PM | Jennifer Alderman

Beloved Members,


The new addition is taking shape and, despite even more rain, the project is on schedule! The exterior walls and fascia match and recede into the non-historic 1950s kitchen addition, allowing the historic Clubhouse to retain center stage. Don’t miss Erin Pottmeyer’s latest photos documenting the construction in the Building and Grounds section of the newsletter. 


Speaking of center stage, the Fine Arts Awards Classical and Jazz Music Competition is Sunday, March 24, 3:00 p.m. at the SLO Nazarene Church. The talent and abilities of the students participating are inspirational and the event is thoroughly enjoyable and enriching. The Visual Arts Award- winner’s work will be exhibited, refreshments will be served and there is no charge to attend!! 


On Monday, March 25 at 5:30 p.m. the City of San Luis Obispo Cultural Heritage Committee will review The Monday Clubhouse Conservancy’s request for a Mills Act Contract.


The Mills Act is a state law allowing cities to enter into contracts with the owners of historic structures. Such contracts require a reduction of property taxes in exchange for the continued preservation of the property. Property taxes are recalculated using a formula in the Mills Act and Revenue and Taxation Code.


Please come to the meeting to show your support for this effort (City Hall, 990 Palm Street, SLO).


Finally, the April 8 General Meeting will be busy with Board elections, Capital Campaign updates and a program featuring the FAA music and art winners! I look forward to seeing you there!


With gratitude,


Jennifer Alderman
