Trust members, volunteers, and supporters, David and Beverly Allen of Atlanta, recently helped us decorate Rhodes Hall in the fashion it deserves. The two retirees, both Emory alums who worked together at their oral and maxillofacial surgery practice, are the proud parents of three girls. Having previously donated both time and energy to the Trust, the Allens stepped forward to donate a rug to Rhodes Hall. This gift, unlikely as it may sound, is a true boon for the Trust.
Readers of this blog may recall that Michael Purser and Gregg Limbird have put significant time, energy and effort into Rhodes Hall's floors. With the woods of this house gleaming with health, staff members soon realized we needed more rugs to help protect that work and to display Rhodes Hall as it was meant to be shown.
Dr. and Mrs. Allen have interceded on behalf of this great house. Obviously, Rhodes Hall, a home built by a furniture magnate, deserves to be outfitted graciously as it would have been originally. By giving an in-kind donation of a rug, the Allens have helped us to honor this house and its history.
