PAST JCLC PRESERVATION AWARDS CEREMONIES
An inspired annual gathering of preservation practitioners, managers of monuments, heroes of built heritage, giants of grassroots advocacy, scholars of architectural motives, keepers of culture, builders of the future...
This will be the spirited scene on Thursday, May 31, 2012 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre in Journal Square as the Jersey City Landmarks Conservancy, a non-profit citizen-led organization formed in 1999, hands out much-deserved preservation awards toward the end of Preservation Month 2012.
“The annual awards ceremony is our opportunity to recognize, in a very public way, those who have preserved our local heritage and historic resources,” states John Hallanan, JC Landmarks’ young president and recent Rutgers graduate.
“Whether it is homeowners who went the extra mile to restore their home, a developer who adaptively reused a landmark, or a civic organization that raised awareness about a local treasure, a public ‘Thank You’ is the least we can do to show that efforts to keep history alive is important to the community.”
