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.
