Dear Members, Volunteers, and Friends:
As you may be aware, the Detroit chapter of Architecture for Humanity was revived in February of 2013. AFH is dedicated to improving the lives of Detroit residents who face accessibility challenges through their daily life, and we are proud to say that we have completed several projects that achieve this mission.
We'll be meeting tomorrow night at 6:00pm at the AIAri Windows Space, 158 Washington Street (Providence) to discuss the Doyle Avenue Historic District Survey and a new potential project in Pawtucket.
Please let me know if you are planning to attend.
at the last extra meeting we had a great brainstorming session for the PARK(ing) Day event; however we ran out of time for the design session for the Nepal Permaculture project.
So with a very short notice (sorry) we are announcing an extra-extra meeting for tomorrow,
Tuesday the 22nd of July at 18:00,
at the Trades Hall Building, 377 Sussex St Sydney
We hope you can make it!
