Friends of the Boyd Weekly Update

Thanks to the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia for providing
photos of the recent awards luncheon at the historic ballroom of the
Bellevue Stratford, now operated by Hyatt Hotels.

Here’s a photo of Philadelphia COUNCILMAN BILL GREEN accepting honors for
championing legislation so that historic interiors can be legally protected:

MAYOR MICHAEL NUTTER took time from his busy schedule to visit and speak
about the importance of historic preservation.

This photo shows the gorgeous BALLROOM, packed since this wonderful event
sold out. Many were honored including the late HAL WHEELER for his plans for
the Boyd.

Here’s JOHN GALLERY and myself at the reception before the luncheon.

John is VP of Friends of the Boyd, and, of course, the Exec Director of the
Preservation Alliance. The Alliance has been our allies in our continued
work to ensure the restoration and reopening of the Boyd Theatre.
