June 9, 2014: SAVE THE DATE! Join us for a Silvermont Rally at the June 9 Transylvania County Commissioners’ meeting: 6 p.m. at the Transylvania County Library Rogow Room. Leaders of several groups who have volunteered at Silvermont over the years will speak very briefly on behalf of the park, and ask the commissioners to put money for Silvermont in the new fiscal year budget. If you care about Silvermont, please come.
Please email our County Commissioners urging them to support
Silvermont Park by:
1. Adopting the Silvermont Centennial Committee’s strategic plan for the mansion and grounds. This includes urgent repairs and improvements to be completed by 2015 when the mansion turns 100 years old. (details at http://www.silvermont.org)
2. Funding this plan beginning with the new fiscal year budget 2014-15 that they are working on right now.
