Renovations at Mory’s are expected to start up sometime this month, according to Mory’s Board of Governors President Christopher Getman ’64. In an e-mail to “Mory’s supporters and friends” sent Jan. 2., Getman wrote that “the site preparation is complete, and we hope to be in the ground with roughly 100 cubic yards of cement in early January.”

Mory’s is continuing to sell the naming rights to much of its furniture — including some booths, tables and more than 100 chairs that are still unspoken for — by granting plaques on these items to donors.
