Community Spirit in the Department

December 6, 2009

It’s not fun going to meetings, but it can get things done. As reported in today’s Savannah Morning News, Architectural History Chair Robin Williams and Departmental Assistant April Martin are both new appointees to notable Savannah boards (SMN).

April Martin will serve on the Cultural Affairs Commission helping plan and facilitate local festivals, art happenings, theatre productions and much more (CAC).

Robin Williams takes a post on the Historic District Board of Review, serving “to protect the values of property associated with history, unique architectural details or relation to a square, park or area within the Landmark Historic District” (MPC-HDBR).

Both are three-year terms, ending on December 31, 2012. Congratulations!

Full Disclosure: I serve as architectural historian conducting tours, writing entries, and generally boosting awareness of the built environment for the Eastside Savannah Project of the Department of Cultural Affairs. I am also coming to the end of my second term on the Chatham County Historic Preservation Commission, a duty I have thoroughly enjoyed (MPC-CCHPC).

Lesson To Be Learned: Consider some public service yourself–it can help us all, at the same time that it can be enjoyable and productive.
