ISLES CEE 477 Sustainable Design Student Presentations - January 12

Recently, the Princeton University homepage highlighted an exciting partnership between the university and Isles: the CEE 477 Sustainable Design engineering course. For the course, students are analyzing the potential for a deeply green retrofit of Isles' One Johnston Avenue textile mill. You are cordially invited to the final student presentations on their findings. Taught by Dr. Robert Harris, Co-Chair of the Isles Board of Trustees, the course in Civil and Environmental Engineering encouraged a "whole systems" approach to the building design - in keeping with Isles approach to community development. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with Marty Johnson, President of Isles, and Randy Croxton, the New York-based award-winning green architect who is heading the design team for the project.

Date: January 12, 2009
Time: 4:30 p.m.
Location: Room 004 in the Friend Center on Olden Street, across from the Engineering Quadrangle

The presentation and panel discussion will be followed by refreshments. The course was featured in the Princeton Weekly Bulletin:
We hope you will join us.

Little Tigers Playdates

Thank you to all of you that came out to the Little Tigers Playdates this fall. I made some new friends, and the children seemed to be having fun!

The outdoor playdates will resume in the spring. I am looking into indoor locations for the winter and will post the dates and locations as soon as I know them. In the meantime, feel free to browse the pictures of the September Playdate - a gorgeous fall day.

By the way, the child model seen in the photo is Benji, son of Jeremy Kestler '94 and Lisa Picken Kestler '96.

Community Service Update

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.

Contrary to an earlier post, there will be more opportunities to volunteer at the Isles site during the winter; parts of the building will be warmed with space heaters so work can go on.

The PA3 Community Service committee is also beginning to plan a mentoring program to help Trenton area high school students through the college application and financial-aid-seeking process. We hope to begin next spring and carry on at least through one college application season – and if all goes well, to make this an ongoing PA3 program. We are in the early stages of figuring out how this is going to work and welcome the participation of alums in the planning process. If you'd like to help with the planning, please contact Grace Penn '99 at

Weapons of Mass Construction, Part 2 (community service project)

Sunday, October 26
Back by popular demand!

Join your fellow alumni for another Day of Demolition for a great cause! Spouses/partners and children (10 and up) are welcome too. No experience needed.

Isles, Inc., a Trenton-based development organization ( started by Marty Johnson '81 and other Princeton students and faculty in 1981, is coordinating a second volunteer day in cooperation with the PA3's Community Service Committee. Volunteers will work on the renovation of a beautiful, mostly vacant, circa 1895 former textile mill on the Trenton-Hamilton border. The 6.5 acre site is being converted by Isles into a mixed use, "green" village, which will include offices for public interest and environmental organizations, training facilities for inner city youth, homes, art studios and other spaces.

Because the building is currently unheated, this will be our last opportunity to work at this site until spring. We will plan more volunteer projects with Isles when the weather warms up. (Other group volunteer activities are being considered for the winter months; suggestions are welcome.)

Once again, volunteers are invited to bring donations for the Mercer Street Friends Food Bank. The following non-perishable food items and hygiene supplies are especially needed: canned tuna, sardines, salmon, chicken; fruit in light syrup; juices; rice; Parmalat or other shelf-stable milk; toothpaste; deodorant; shampoo; soap; toilet paper.

Please email Arlen Hastings '80 S79 P09 ( if you would like to participate. We hope to see you on the 26th!

The 4th annual Pre-Rade was attended by Parents, Students, and Alumni. Freshman wore tee-shirts with colors coordinated to match their respective residential colleges (e.g. baby blue for Butler). Several alum were there--but we did not all stand together so it was difficult to see how many of us actually made it. There was the occasional sighting of orange and black reunions jackets. Afterwards the gathering at Maclean House included alumni and parents of the entering students. Some parents were looking pretty dog-faced because their students had just made the ultimate separation and many had pushed them out of their dorm rooms. A few new faulty members stood in the crowd as well. Next year, our Post Pre-rade gathering could extend an invitation to parents of freshman and new faculty. We could call it the decompression hour.

They’ve been delivered to Mercer Street Friends Food Bank, where they were received with gratitude. We’ll have another collection on our next Isles day; stay tuned for a list of most-needed items.

PA3 Goes to Isles

Our first PA3 Community Service event - a volunteer day on September 20 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.

Pre-rade a success!

A crowd of several hundred, including alumni from the area dressed in their Reunions costumes, as well as the University Band, parents and members of the Classes of '09, '10 and '11 gathered on the lawn in front of Nassau Hall on Sunday, 7 September, to welcome the freshman class of 2012.

This was the fourth annual "Pre-Rade" which was led by President Shirley Tilghman and a retinue of around 100 faculty members and administrators, dressed in their academic regalia, entering through Fitzrandolph gate, leading eventually to a class of '12 barbeque and then the "Step Sing" on Blair Steps, where the class was introduced to five Princeton songs including, of course, Old Nassau.

Thanks to the alumni, many from the Princeton Area Alumni Association, for helping make this event a success.

Some photos can be found here.

Weapons of Mass Construction (Community Service Project)

Join your fellow Princeton alumni for a day of learning, fun, construction and yes, destruction (at least demolition) for a great cause!

*** Update: Over 25 people have signed up so far, from the Class of '58 through to the Class of '12 ... Thank you to those of you who have expressed interest in the upcoming alumni community service day at Isles on September 20th! Over 25 alumni from various classes have already signed up. Unfortunately, we are experiencing some technical difficulties with the evite and some alumni responses were not registered. If you RSVPed via evite and haven't heard from us, would you please email Lori Piranian '06 at, so that we can get a head count and send you the appropriate release forms? If you haven't responded but plan to attend, please RSVP via email to ***

Isles, Inc., a Trenton-based development organization ( started by Marty Johnson '81 and other Princeton students and faculty in 1981, is coordinating a community service day in cooperation with the Princeton Area Alumni Association's Community Service Committee.

Volunteers will get the chance to work on the renovation of a beautiful, mostly vacant, circa 1895 former textile mill on the Trenton - Hamilton border. Along the northeast corridor rail line, the 6.5 acre site is being converted by Isles into a mixed use, "green" village. It will include offices for public interest and environmental organizations, training facilities for inner city youth, homes, art studios and other spaces.

Because of the unusually "green" approach to Isles' redevelopment plans, Princeton University's Civil and Environmental Engineering fall course titled "Sustainable Design CEE 477" will focus on the mill's unique opportunities and challenges.

The mill is located at One North Johnston Ave, Trenton, NJ 08609. It is about a 12 minute drive from Princeton's campus, just south on Route 1. Volunteers, or "mass constructors" will get the chance to demolish some walls, or paint (clean, latex, low odor), or landscape with bulbs and other plantings. Alumni spouses and children (10 and up!) are invited, so you can involve the family. No experience needed.

In addition to the chance to get some good physical work (therapy?) done, we will learn about community development from one of the leading organizations in the region and country.

When: Saturday, September 20th, 8:30am - 4:00pm. Please plan to arrive between 8:30 and 9:00 to get acquainted and learn the ropes, and stay as long as you'd like. We will meet at the site. Gloves, goggles and tools will be provided. Bring your own lunch, or $6/head and we will order pizza.

Volunteers are invited to bring food items for donation to the Mercer Street Friends Food Bank, which serves over 17,000 low-income men, women and children who reside in Mercer County and neighboring communities. The following non-perishable items are especially needed: canned tuna fish, sardines, salmon, chicken; fruit in light syrup; juices; rice; Parmalat or other shelf-stable milk.

Please let us know if you're planning to attend; we need a head count to ensure we have the right number of supervisors and supplies. When we hear from you, we will email you volunteer guidelines and forms.

PA3 on Facebook Has Moved

Please note that our Facebook group has moved. Because I created this group under the "Princeton" network, only those previously in this Facebook network were able to join the PA3 alliance. Unfortunately, this cannot be changed by Facebook. So, we're moving to an identically-named group which is now under the GLOBAL network designation. Please, then, 'ask to join' this group upon finding it in the Facebook Universe. Sorry for the trouble!

Watch your emailbox for our upcoming newsletter


The Association views this newsletter as an essential part of its efforts to build and maintain the organization. Members of the association, which includes all alumni with mailing addresses close to the Princeton campus, will have varying levels of involvement and will have preferred ways of receiving information. Our website/blog ( the most current source of information about our activities, and it will be accessed by many members. Members who are on Facebook or on LinkedIn are invited to join the “Princeton Area Alumni Association (PAAA)” groups (please note that on Facebook, you need to be a member of the Princeton network in order to join).

We will have special mailings and emailings, but the newsletter will play a complementary role by reaching association members who may have missed or been missed by these other forms of communication and by providing reminders of upcoming events. So far, a publication schedule has not been established, but we anticipate issuing several electronic and paper newsletters per year.

Many thanks to Sev Onyshkevych ’83, chair of the Membership and Communication Committee, for his assistance, especially for providing sample newsletters from other associations, and, even more, for his encouragement.

I retired from the Rutgers University Libraries in 2003. I am an active participant in Graduate School Annual Giving, and I support the Princeton University Library and the Art Museum.


NIMBY (“Not in my backyard”) is an unlovely slogan used by those who object to the possible siting of prisons, waste treatment plants, and other necessary governmental activities that they deem undesirable.

However, having something in one’s backyard can be both a valuable asset and thoroughly enjoyable! We are the "IMBYs" ... being so close to the Princeton University campuses is a privilege of ours, and comes with obligations. On the one hand, we can enjoy and support the many attractions the university has for the alumni, and, through community service we can further enhance the usefulness and the reputation of Princeton University. We can contribute to “Princeton in the nation’s service” in part, and via our Association “Princeton in the community’s service.” It seems to me, therefore, this newsletter could provide an opportunity for alumni to describe their pleasant experiences with university attractions, such as the art museum, and to describe their equally enjoyable efforts to serve through our association. We could also describe our work with various offices or other elements of Princeton to provide new services and to plan events.
