Spring Garden Party and Annual Meeting

A lovely garden in one of Alexandria’s many diverse neighborhoods is the perfect setting for HAF members and friends to gather for drinks and midday repast, while catching up with old and new neighbors and friends, and learning about the Foundation’s latest initiatives. The year’s grant awards from the Historic Alexandria Foundation Preservation Fund are announced with recipients invited to describe their projects for the membership. Oval bronze Plaques are delivered to the owners of historic properties which have been judged to meet criterion of integrity and authenticity of their historic building. Preservation awards for the year are bestowed.

This year's party will be held in the lovely garden of Major Jonathan Wilbor on Sunday, June 11 from four to six p.m. We hope you will join us at Major Wilbor's house at 310 South Lee Street in Old Town. Tickets are $100 each, with $50 being tax deductible. No tickets will be mailed. A guest list will be kept at the door.

Toasting Our Town

Toasting Our Town is our annual fall party to benefit the Historic Alexandria Preservation Fund. Usually held at The Athenaeum, one of Old Town’s iconic Greek Temple-form buildings, it is a lively and memorable evening featuring libations, mouth-watering hors d'oeuvres, a silent auction and the buzz of conversation among old and new friends.
