Before Arlene Simon, no West Sider had stepped up to the challenge of unifying people concerned about the then-eroding architectural character of the neighborhood under a single preservation banner. That banner became Landmark West! After thirty eventful years on the preservation playground, Arlene has graduated and passed the torch to Kate Wood, LW’s long-time director and president since January 2015. Join us Wednesday, June 3rd at 6pm, to celebrate Arlene’s distinguished record of (mostly) high marks! Suggested Donation- contributions go to our children’s education program “Keeping the Past for the Future” (KPF).
