The President’s Corner 

Dear Friends of the Bard Mansion,

The board was happy to have president Dave Kesterson at our last meeting, and we all wish him well.

Our thanks to board member Cheryl Saum for allowing the tour of Quarters A (the Richard Bard home) in honor of Joanna Bard Newton’s 100th birthday. The board wishes to recognize the efforts of current and former members of the Friends for their support of the 1986 designation of the Richard Bard home as a landmark by the Ventura County Cultural Heritage Board: Dorothy Ramirez, Dama Hanks, Madeline Miedama, Ray Prueter, Orvene Carpenter, Carol Marsh, Tom Figg, Bob Quinn. Mrs. Ann Caughman, wife of the CO, attended the event, and soon after founded the Friends. Richard’s wife Joan Bard, who had lived in the home 1916-1945 was present, and died two years later.

The Friends have been very fortunate recently to be the recipients of several beautiful and historic pieces of antique furniture. Building our collection is a part of our mission statement. We are thankful to the generous givers who could have chosen any number of places to bequeath their precious belongings.

We are happy that the Navy has reopened the Mansion for lunches on Tuesdays. Our thanks are extended to Capt. Janke and Capt. Grossgold (on behalf of Supervisor Kelly Long) for their successful efforts. The lunches had been suspended due to a federal hiring freeze. Our beautiful house needs people enjoying its surroundings and experiencing its history. We hope to see you on June 10th for a fascinating program the Chronicles of PT-157!

The President
