Giles project picking up steam
with first public utilization, clean-up,
news coverage, and Louisville events
The Janice Holt Giles and Henry Giles Foundation have a heavy agenda scheduled for October.
In a meeting Tuesday, October 1, in the office of local board member Clara Metzmeier at Campbellsville University, the local board of the foundation set Saturday, October as "Inside Clean-Up Day" at the Spouts Springs Home and said that the first major public event to held at the property on October 26.
The group was told that the
fund for the restoration has risen slightly to just over $14,000 of the $65-75,000 goal. However, with the increased interest in the project, Mrs. Metzmeier expects rapid changes in the totals.
Also, Mrs. Metzmeier said that there will be statewide foundation meeting in Louisville on October 9.
On October 26, the local board will hold an open house from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Central) at Spout Springs. At 11 a.m., there will be a "House Talk," given by Mrs. Metzmeier. Mrs. Metzmeier wants the public to know that while tremendous accomplishments have occurred at the house, there still are no utilities and no facilities and that only part of the property is wheelchair accessible.
This event will mark the first major public event at the Giles home. Already, at least one statewide publication has plans to do a major article on the Gileses immediately preceding the event.
On October 24, Dianne Watkins, Mrs. Giles' biographer and author/editor of Hello, Janice will give a video presentation at one of the Hawley-Cooke Bookstores in Louisville.
On October 9, students from duPont Manual High School will be at the house to learn about the Gileses. Rev. Jim Chaffin will be their host.
Mrs. Metzmeier says that persons wishing to donate labor or gifts to the Foundation contact one of the local board members: Donna Vaughn, Rev. Chaffin, Evelyn McCloud, Barbara Peterson, or Mrs. Metzmeier.
