Conservancy held their annual meeting in San Francisco this past week.
Congratulations is in order for one of our own Wright Chatters.
Peter and his wife Irmi Maunu received the "Wright Spirit Award" in the Private Category for their outstanding stewardship of the Jack Lamberson house.
With this very prestigious award, Peter and Irmi join a distinguished list of owners that have done what it takes to restore and maintain a structure designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
We pat you on your back, tip our hats, and applaud your numerous accomplishments on a superb restoration of Lamberson.
Another Chatter won a Wright Spirit Award: Bill Schwarz (wjsaia) for is decades long dedication (advocacy, design, and consultation) in keeping Wright's vision for Marin County Civic Center intact as the building navigates changing times and technologies. Christine and I enjoyed meeting Bill and Tricia his wife.

And I can assure you, Paul, that a good chunk of my acceptance remarks focused on Stafford's contributions. In a certain sense, this is Stafford's second Spirit Award, since he did the restoration of the Malcolm Wiley house. Owners Steve and Lynette (Stafford's mother...) Sikora received the award a few years back.
There is still is a punch list ahead, but it gets shorter every season.
And many, many thanks to everyone at Wright Chat for their suggestions, critiques and input. What an amazing resource this place can be!
The conference was fun, informative, and we had the pleasure of visiting some stunning architecture along the way, most of it from the mid twentieth century.
The Cubs won, we received our award!... and then we also had an election.
