From David Parker, Calgary Herald July 8, 2010

New carpets are being laid on the main floor of historic Lougheed House today, thanks to another wonderful act of generosity by Abbas Keshmiri, owner of House of Persian Rugs. ( http://www.houseofpersianrugs.com/ ) Last year, Keshmiri supplied some fine carpets for the second floor and he has now donated others for the hallway, drawing room, Mission room and the Senator's study. Photographs of the interior of the house when it was occupied by the Lougheed family show Persian design carpets; Keshmiri has carefully selected patterns that are similar. He says he has previously offered stock to charities, but he views his gifts to the Lougheed House as a legacy donation.

There have been a lot of updates about Lougheed House and various events on the site the last few years, but most of them not posted in this thread. When I have a minute, I'll try to consolidate the most important (non-event) updates. So this is a placeholder.
