2003 People In Preservation Awards

Saturday, May 10

By Kathleen Kelley-Markham

The National Trust created Preservation Week in 1971 to spotlight grassroots preservation efforts around the country. It's grown into an annual celebration observed from small towns to big cities, with events ranging from tours, reenactments and rallies to black-tie balls and national competitions. In honor of National Preservation Week, May 5th through 12th, SOHO holds its People In Preservation awards.

This year SOHO welcomes the opportunity to join with Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) as it celebrates 100 years of innovation in oceanography in San Diego County. The SIO campus contains many historic buildings including the the old Scripps Lab, the Director's House, the Munk Laboratory and many original "T" (for temporary) redwood cottages built by E.W. Scripps.

Our annual PIP awards event will be held at the Munk Conference Room, which was designed by noted San Diego architect Lloyd Ruocco in the early 1960's, and overlooks the Pacific Ocean and the Scripps pier.

There will be a behind-the-scenes tour of the Ruocco building and the T-houses prior to the awards ceremony. Come visit the place that invented the wet suit, the FLIP boat, Sealab and the idea of global warming. This special evening will include an unmatched sunset viewing, cocktails and appetizers and live music, culminating in the presentation of the PIP awards to the recipients.

Tours are from 5pm to 6:30pm, appetizers will be served with a no-host bar, the awards ceremony is from 7:30 to 9pm. Tickets are $30 for SOHO members, and $40 for non members. Paid reservations are required and must be received by May 8th. For more information or reservations call the SOHO Events Line at (619) 297-7511.
