PSSO Work Weekend Set
The event is going to be held at Lyndhurst, Tarrytown, NY from April 17 to April 20, 2014. The activities will include:
- rebuilding and repainting the three entryways of the 1880 Lord & Burnham designed greenhouse; thought to be the oldest iron-frame glasshouse in the western hemisphere
- to learn about historic brick and stone masonry, and help with restoration of damaged and missing pointing at the Greenhouse complex
- to repair and re-glaze historic windows and doors.

You survived at least 60 credit hours of coursework and two bitter winters hauling yourself up to Sibley Hall. That is a rite of passage in and of itself. Sadly, it is not that alone which puts a Cornell diploma in an HPP candidate's frost-bitten hands. It is THE THESIS.
The thesis can be an elusive quest. Enter Barclay Jones, former chair of the Department of City & Regional Planning. Due to his remarkable dedication to the Department, including the Historic Preservation Planning Program, HPPA named its thesis research fund--the Barclay Jones Research Fund--in his honor.
And it's available to help you complete your thesis!
This may be just what you need to get over that hump. Let Barclay Jones be your guide.
Now Your Lifetime Membership Will Be Matched!
That's right! Prof. Michael Tomlan has graciously agreed to match any lifetime membership in HPPA. What better way to support an organization you believe in than to double your contribution!
Have you renewed your membership?
HPPA relies on your member dues to support activities like Work Weekend, funding student travel to conferences, and hosting the Alumni Reception at the National Trust Conference... just to name a few.
So what are you waiting for? Join up (it's a steal at $35), renew, or (magically) turn that $300 into $600 by becoming a lifetime member today!
