Modernism Week Tours Wow Visitors...
Huge thanks to the seven generous and brave homeowners who opened up their exceptional living spaces and yards to hundreds of enthusiastic Modernism Week visitors from across the country. The excitement was palpable, and each and every one of our 80 docent volunteers contributed significantly to our success. Without our homeowners and docents it could not have been done, so big thank you's all around. We can now say with a sigh of relief that our first Magnesia Falls Cove Modernism Tour was a huge success!
The 400 fans of midcentury architecture, design and landscape excellence were delighted and inspired as they traversed our neighborhood to experience our unique and historic homes and friendly community. Both docents and guests reported that they were very much impressed with all the homes in our stunning cove. Many out-of-towners commented on how lucky we were to live here. I have to agree with them, and thank them for reminding us of what an unusual and spectacular location we live in. In addition to all of that, this event provided a way for neighbors to meet new neighbors and work together on a very special event. You could feel the positive energy and excitement in the air.
We wanted you to wake up this morning and every morning with our heartfelt thanks and appreciation. We know how hard you all worked to make the presentation just perfect - what a long, demanding two year process it has been. Anne Winchester has been the RMCA's driving force behind this event every step of the way and without her dedication and nearly 1000 hours of donated time, this event would not have been possible.
Here's hoping we can present this event again two or three years from now. In the meantime, I know I am energized with all the great design ideas, both small and grand.
Many thanks to our partner organization Preservation Mirage and Board President Melissa Riche for working hand in hand with us on this event. You can find out more about their work advocating for the preservation and protection of significant architecture in Rancho Mirage on their website www.preservationmirage.org
Sincerely, Deborah Lazio RMCA Board President
