Dear Friends of the Manor House:

Thank you for your interest in the Live at Evergreen concerts. For five years we have enjoyed providing free concerts to the community to support the mission of preserving and restoring the Evergreen Manor House. This year brings with it some changes that come as a result of our success, including (ironically) a hiatus in the concert series for 2011.

Last year we held six concerts, with record attendance for each event. Through your generous support, our concert goers and sponsors, the funds raised have allowed us to do a number of important things towards achieving our mission. We have painted, re-built porches, re-pointed the majority of stone, replaced the original copper gutters, re-built window frames/dormers/mouldings, organized interior clean up and more. See progress photos here. We also succeeded in listing Evergreen on the National Register of Historic Places, a prestigious national honour that recognizes Evergreen’s historic significance and brings with it new opportunities to advance our mission and raise funds.

Perhaps our most important achievement is we are now ready to start the first phase of interior restoration, which for the first time in ~30 years will make the building available for use again. We have the funds (thanks to you), the plan, and most importantly agreement with the county, who has worked closely with us for over a year to get to this point. The concert series for the summer of 2011 is on hold while we work out strategic plans with Evergreen CC (owner) around future fundraising, restoration, and use of the building. We hope to resume the series later in the year and will email updates and post information online as we know more.

Best wishes for a great summer,

The Manor House Preservation Fund - June 2011
