It's great to read that Mr. Rodgers is getting the recognition that he so much deserves. He has been a valuable asset to Filoli and "his shoes" would be hard to fill!

Congratulations Tom, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Congratulations to my friend and lunch-mate! He is a first-class guy and a very good friend.

Congratulations, Tom
on this very deserved tribute and recognition. It has been a joy to have been one of the thousands trained by you as a House and Garden docent and to be regaled by your stories at lunch occasionally in the Quail's Nest Cafe. You always have a way of making everyone feel special that you meet and now it is your turn too. And moreover, NOW we REALLY need to get the Board of Governors to name you, Curator Emeritus!!!
As the church lady (aka Dana Carvey), would have said "Isn't THAT Special!"
