A big 'Thank You' goes out to everyone who attended the historic Tacoma Postcard Event on May 15.
The Historic Tacoma Board and member volunteers shared the surprise and delight of all the guests at the size and enthusiasm of the happy throng who assembled to celebrate the varied ways in which we value Tacoma's architectural heritage.
One literally 'had to be there' to fully appreciate the depth and breadth of the regard for buildings, and whole neighborhoods, both humble and iconic, which define the character of our neighborhoods and our city.
By now we have all received postcards from, hopefully, new friends who share our care and concern for the buildings, great and humble, which define Tacoma's urban fabric. While 'a picture is worth a thousand words', our story is made up of both words and pictures, and we urge you to continue the conversations begun on that mild spring evening.
We stand at a unique and precious moment of opportunity for Tacoma, at which our care and concern for Tacoma's architectural heritage may be conveyed to those who plan and realize a renewed vision for the City. Your response at this event confirms that care for the built legacy which we received and hope to pass on is not a mere avocation, but a community value.
Please continue to 'talk-up' our wonderful heritage, with each other and with Historic Tacoma, through our website, and social media connections, and play your part in assuring a rich future for Tacoma.
