Isles Volunteer Day - April 18 - Update

Oops, forgot to post this earlier. Here are the details for this Saturday's volunteer day:

Saturday, April 18, 2009
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Please join us for the fourth in a series of volunteer days being co-organized by the Community Service Committee of the Princeton Area Alumni Association (PA3) and Isles, Inc., a Trenton-based development organization ( started in 1981 by Marty Johnson '81.

Volunteers will continue working on the renovation of a former textile mill on the Trenton-Hamilton border. 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.

Alumni, spouses/partners/friends, and children (10 and up) are welcome to participate. There's something for everyone, from the brawny to the scrawny. We look forward to seeing our "regulars" and hope to see lots of first-time volunteers too. No experience needed.

Here's what we'll be doing on April 18:
-Continue deconstruction on the second and third floors
-Prepare interior bricks, including scraping and painting

The mill is located at One North Johnston Avenue, Hamilton, NJ 08609, about a 12-minute drive from the Princeton campus, just south on Route 1.

25 people have volunteered so far for this Saturday, and there's plenty of room for more. This is a BIG building.

PLEASE EMAIL ARLEN HASTINGS '80 ( IF YOU'RE PLANNING TO ATTEND, as we need a head count to ensure we have the right number of supervisors and supplies.

Directions, waiver forms, information on lunch plans, and other details will be provided to volunteers closer to the work date.

We hope to see you at Isles on April 18!
