The speaker at the next Salt an Light meeting will be Richard (Dick) Ambrus, executive director of Glenwood Cemetery for 31 years and of its foundation since inception in 1999.
“Houston’s silent garden,” Glenwood was designed in the tradition of other romantic rural cemetery parks of the 19th century and remains an active, operating cemetery. The collection of statuary and monuments within its 84 acres are reminders of Houston’s rich history and the six generations that shaped it. Included among them are the last President of the Republic of Texas, four governors, and more than 20 Houston mayors, along with founders of major oil companies, and religious and professional leaders.
The gathering will begin at 10:30.m. with the program at 11 followed by an $8 lunch for those who RSVP to 713-528-0527 or firstname.lastname@example.org by April 7.
The next Salt and Light day trip will be May 14 when the group will go to Huntsville to visit the Foundation and Museum of artist David Adickes in the former Huntsville High School, his alma mater.
