While many may have been headed to the Salesmanship Club of Dallas dinner on Wednesday, September 25, they first stopped by Libby and David Hunt’s home. The reason was the announcement of the recipient of the 12th Annual Virginia Chandler Dykes Leadership Award.
Actually it was not so much of a surprise announcement, since Dallas Arboretum President/CEO Mary Brinegar’s photo was on the front of the invitation. Rather, it was an official announcement reception hosted by Libby and David, and Bank of Texas.
After a whirlwind weekend of opening festivities of the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden, some might have headed to a spa to recoup. But Mary was fresh as an Arboretum daisy and preparing to launch Autumn at the Arboretum with its 50,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash on display.
Among those on hand to hear about plans for the February 20th luncheon fundraiser for Texas Woman’s University at Belo Mansion were TWU Chancellor Ann Stuart, Caroline Rose Hunt, Bob Backbill, Mary Frances Burleson, George Schrader, Marj Waters, Bob White, Carmen McMillan, Craig Hester, Norm Bagwell, April Box Chamberlain and Libby’s folks Sharon and Mike McCullough.
