Support the Pink House had their monthly meeting at PITA Hall on Plum Island last night, May 24, 2017. Steering Committee members were delighted to welcome a host of new attendees who had come from greater surrounding towns from Haverhill to Ipswich and Rowley and Seabrook along with those who attend from Newbury, W. Newbury and Newburyport, etc...
The theme of this meeting was the history of the Pink House, which surprisingly is so rich, it is far from completed.
Seen front in the blue shirt is writer Stewart Lytle, who has been a very supportive in faithfully attending meetings and reporting on the considerable progress we've been making. He writes cover articles above the fold on Support the Pink House for the Town Common paper and we really appreciate it!!
The group turns from the screen at front, where they saw a slide show of the interior of the house and a video of what it's like to be in the cupola to listen to the input of Steering Committee members sitting at the side table: Building and Land Specialist David Dempsey, Founder and Research Director Alison Odle, Creative Director and Artist Leison Eric Hoover, and Rochelle Joseph, Chair and Outreach.
Then everyone returned their attention to the flat screen at front to listen to a very intriguing mix of found facts and questions raised by Volunteer and Researcher Extraordinaire Sandy Tilton and Alison Odle -- who also put together a really great Powerpoint presentation to support their findings. Stay tuned as they continue their ace detective work to follow all they've unearthed to the end of the story.
A coffee table book will likely be made including their findings along with all the incredibly photos and paintings of the Pink House that our members and artists near and far have done on this amazing little icon.
