The answer was provided by the ever-charming Walter Elcock, who has been filling in until a new DMA director is announced. Evidently someone wanted to have a very special private tented gathering this Saturday. So, Walter and the DMA crew arranged schedules and managed to have the tent stay put until the annual fundraiser that Ann and David Sutherland are chairing.
On the north end of the DMA compound, the workers are working non-stop to finish up the new Eagle Family Plaza just in time for the Folly at the Art Ball (aka Art Ball after party) being chaired by Junior Associates Rachel and Michael Osburn. If you remember the old northern entrance, scrap that idea. The new plaza is gonna be something and perfect to party hardy.
