Second Nibbles and Sips event expands for movie preview

HistoricMesquiteLogo

Mesquite, TX - June 29, 2018 - The Board of Directors of Historic Mesquite, Inc. (HMI) invites supporters of the organization and those interested in historic preservation to join them at the second Nibbles & Sips event to be held at 6 p.m., July 26, at Opal Lawrence Historical Park, 701-711 E. Kearney St. Visitors that attend the event will be the first to view the newly restored washhouse and root cellar outbuildings, once they have enjoyed some food and drink.

“We thought this event would be the perfect time to show off our latest restoration project,” said Donna Woodard, board chair.  “Our supporters helped us raise the needed $125,000 for the restoration and I think they will be pleased with the outcome.”

Ron Siebler, Siebler, Inc. Remodeling & Historic Preservation, led the project, which included securing both buildings, replacing rotted wood and outside battens, and rebuilding floors and roofs.  Siebler is an award-winning contractor with bodies of work in Denton, Dallas, Farmers Branch and other areas of North Texas.

“Ron does things the old way,” Woodard said.  “He treats his projects as if they were art projects and directs his artisans and tradesmen in the proper way to treat historic buildings.  His work is featured in several films, which document his craft.  We were very lucky to contract with Ron for our project as he is never without work.”

Once guests have enjoyed the refreshments, HMI Directors will guide them to see the outbuildings, then introduce them to the next restoration project – the New Hope Church.

“Our City is in constant demand for a place that will hold 100 to 125 people for weddings, lectures, workshops, small conferences.  This church, once restored, will fill that demand and bring people to the park to enjoy the historic setting,” Woodard said.

The same guests that are first to see the restored outbuildings will also be led to the Mesquite Arts Center’s Performance Hall for the screening of “Past Preserved: the Restoration of the Lawrence Park Outbuildings,” created by Mark Birnbaum, a Dallas filmmaker and award-winner in his own right. Birnbaum has used drone footage, film from the actual restoration and family photographs in the film together. Both he and Siebler will be on-hand to introduce the film, which begins at 8 p.m.

Once the movie has concluded, guests will be treated to desserts, coffee and water. The entire event is free.
