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!
