Foundation Cites Giles Brothers; Ket Film On The House To Air In Fall
This article first appeared in issue 15, and was written by Clara Metzmeier.
Clara Metzmeier, President of the Janice Holt Giles and Henry Giles Foundation, Inc., recognized Clifford and Travis Giles in the latest edition of the Foundation's newsletter.
"Travis and Clifford Giles have given many, many hours of driving their bush-hogs and mowers to keep Cousin Henry's place looking nice," the article said, "but these brothers have done more than mow grass. Travis has hauled many truck load of trash from the property; Clifford has given the Foundation pictures of Giles ancestors and family history and has acted as purchasing agent for the buying of some Giles furniture and other items for the House. Travis and Clifford have done and do so much to encourage the board members and to help promote the Foundation's goals of preservation and education. The Foundation couldn't function efficiently without them."
Persons wishing to volunteer work should contact Barbara Petersen.
KET films segment-The newsletter said that Kentucky Educational Television (KET) did some filming at the House in May.
"Diane Watkins read from The Enduring Hlls and other Giles works," Ms. Metzmeier wrote. "The producers wanted to captaure Giles country in all its splendor, to show why Janice and Henry so loved northern Adair County. The day was perfect. Birds sang, frogs croaked, and the yellow rose bush was in full bloom."
The segment will be on Byron Crawford's Life in Kentucky sometime this fall.
Volunteers-Alan Reed has volunteered to do radio spots for the Foundation. Judy Morris and Elaine Cooley have volunteered to give talks in the Louisville area.
Recent donations have been sent in memory of Edith Walker and in honor of Judith Morris.
