Lewisburg House and Garden Club members learn about Pavilion

Peggy Brown’s residence was the setting for the Wednesday, Sept. 24, meeting of the Lewisburg House and Garden Club, and she served as hostess along with Suzanne Perelli Hancock.

The program was presented by Margaret Hamrick, president of Greenbrier Historical Society, who spoke on the acquisition and restoration of the historic Blue Sulphur Springs Pavilion at Blue Sulphur Springs. The Pavilion is located about nine miles north of Alderson in the western part of Greenbrier County. She said the Pavilion was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1992 and has been named to the Preservation Alliance of West Virginia’s 2013 Endangered Properties List. On Apr. 16, 2013, the Pavilion and two acres were donated to the Greenbrier Historical Society by Rebecca Fleshman Lineberry.

A short business meeting was conducted by First Vice President Peggy Brown. She stated that Bluebell Garden Club is having a silent auction to raise money for Penny Pitch on Nov. 20 at Lewisburg Methodist Church and suggested the membership support their club with this cause. A final report on the June Homes Tour regarding advertising and publicity was given by Judy Deegans and Mary Linquist. Chairman Brown reminded members reservations for the Oct. 8 District Meeting must be received by Oct. 1. Judy Deegans passed out the 2014-2015 Lewisburg House and Garden Club Yearbooks to the members.

The Oct. 22 club meeting is scheduled for 1 p.m. at the home of Judy Deegans. The program will be on “House Pest Proofing” to be presented by Hudnall Wildlife Services.
