PA3 Volunteers Help Build a Playground

June 20, 2009: Eleven PA3 volunteers (most pictured here) turned up on a soggy Saturday morning to help build a playground in Hopewell -- future site for a PA3 playdate? (See the PA3 Facebook page for more photos.)

Progress at Isles!

April 18, 2009: At the fourth PA3 volunteer day at Isles, a crew of about 25 area alums, family members and friends broke into groups to finish deconstructing a room, scrape and paint walls, disassemble pallets, and sort debris for recycling. Isles founder and president Marty Johnson '81 also gave everyone a tour of the amazing facility. Enthusiasm continues unabated, and more PA3 volunteer opportunities at Isles are planned.

PA3 at Isles: Another "Smashing" Success

January 10, 2009: PA3 and Isles joined forces for another great volunteer event. Thirty hardy souls braved cold and dust to tear down walls, remove and haul concrete, pull nails, and commune with fellow alums, all for a great cause.

Back to Isles

October 26, 2008: The PA3 had another great day at Isles. A group of about half repeat volunteers and half first-timers finished up the demolition in the area where we’d begun work a month ago, and sorted the wood and other disassembled bits into piles for reuse or recycling.

PA3 Goes to Isles

September 20, 2008: Our first PA3 Community Service event - a volunteer day at Isles - was a great success. Almost 50 people - mostly alums, but also students, families and friends - spent the day tearing down walls and disassembling interior structures in a beautiful, century-plus-old former textile mill. The 6.5 acre site is being converted by Isles into a mixed use, "green" village, to include offices for public interest and environmental organizations, training facilities for inner city youth, homes, art studios and other spaces. We learned something and had a lot of fun, and we're tentatively planning a similar event in late October to finish the demolition in the area where we were working.
