May is National Preservation Month
Spread the Word - Old is the New Green!
In celebration of National Preservation Month in Houston, the Education Committee of the City of Houston Archeological and Historical Commission is offering a free and informative window repair and weatherization workshop. Historic windows are vital to the character of a historic house, and in many cases they can be repaired and made much more energy efficient. During this 3 hour workshop, learn the skills needed to keep those old windows. Topics include understanding window elements, weatherization and basic repairs.
The National Trust for Historic Preservation www.preservationnation.org, a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving historic places, dedicates each May as National Preservation Month to celebrate the diverse and unique heritage of our country's cities and states, and enables more Americans to participate in the growing preservation movement. The theme for National Preservation Month 2010 is Old is the New Green.
Join this informative session! Remember, preservation is good for communities and the pocketbook and plays a significant role in fostering development that is more environmentally and economically sustainable. Space is limited.
