Caring for Community
Please join us on Tuesday, May 16, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the pioneering Dallas County Medical Society Alliance Foundation and the landmark Aldredge House… a rare Double Centennial Milestone. We will be seated at 11:30 in the ballroom of the Dallas Country Club.
Serving as Honorary Co-Chairs will be two of the most distinguished women in Dallas, Ruth Altshuler and Margaret McDermott. Lindalyn Adams, celebrated historical preservationist, and Dr. William Seale, noted author and historian, will Co-Chair the event.
The DCMSA Foundation, the oldest Medical Alliance in America, created in 1917, has a rich history of health-related service projects that have provided free health services to over one million at risk people in Dallas. The Texas Historical Commission has just awarded a historic marker in recognition of our first 100 years of service to this community.
In April, this marker will be installed at Aldredge House. The Co-Chairs for the Marker Dedication event are Barbara Chapman and Cyndy Hudgins, both TMA Alliance and DCMSA Foundation Past Presidents. Look for your invitation to the April 5th marker dedication and be a part of this special event.
The historic Aldredge House, designed and built by Hal Thomson in 1917, is a Texas Historic Landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Places in America. In 1974, the family of George and Rena Munger Aldredge generously bestowed their family home at 5500 Swiss Avenue to the DCMSAF for the enrichment of the community. Since 1974, this residential landmark has been the headquarters of the Medical Alliance and welcomed over fifty nonprofit organizations and many guests. Preservation Dallas is honoring the Alliance’s careful preservation of the home with another award - their 2016 Stewardship Award.
The DCMSA Foundation is seeking community support so we can continue to preserve the rich heritage of this magnificent house. Sharon and Mike McCullough are the Co- Chairs of the Advisory Host Committee for this Centennial Celebration Luncheon because of their belief in historic preservation, its importance in an ever-changing society, and their great respect for the outstanding preservation of the Aldredge House by the Medical Alliance.
Member support is so appreciated, as we need an endowment to maintain this historic treasure for our community. Please gather your friends and join me, as we celebrate this exciting birthday on May 16.
Turning 100 definitely calls for a Centennial Celebration!
