There they are! Smiling pals Diane DiGregorio Smith and Sandy Tilton, two volunteers we love, who have been there from the VERY START of Support The Pink House. They are often the first to raise their hands, or show up and boy do they take charge and do a great job!
During a lovely sunset this evening, Diane and Sandy, joined by Rochelle Joseph, stood outside a book signing held at the Maratime Customs House (who are kind enough to carry our brochures on their card rack too) during Preservation Week, collecting signatures and passing out our newly updated brochures. Since this event brings people who are interested in history, architecture, and its preservation, we felt that is a perfect group who would want to know about the work we are doing to save The Pink House.
This week happens every spring, and the Newburyport Preservation Trust is active all year. This from their website:
Preservation Week is an annual community-wide event sponsored by the Newburyport Preservation Trust to celebrate the city's unique architectural legacy. The Newburyport Preservation Trust is a membership organization that brings together people who value the preservation of Newburyport's period architecture, neighborhood ambiance, heritage landscapes, and authentic historic character. The all-volunteer organization educates, informs, and advocates through its programs, projects, publications, and presence, and is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.
Both gals came looking pretty in pink - and Sandy is wearing our limited edition Save the Pink House tee shirt (you can get yours by calling Designer and Steering Committee Member Eric Hoover at NBPTART.com at 978-726-7116 or emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org). Those three pink rectangles mimic the pink house windows which turn pink at every sunset and sunrise and there is a graphic of TPH on the back! Get yours now!
