    Please join APTNE for a one-of-a-kind tour at the summit of Mount Greylock, the highest point in Massachusetts at nearly 3500 ft. and a Massachusetts State Park. The summit of Mount Greylock offers panoramic views of western Massachusetts and is home to the Veterans War Memorial Tower (built circa 1933). This granite structure endures harsh weather extremes and recently underwent a full restoration to address deterioration, reduce water infiltration, and improve accessibility. Representatives of the design team and DCR will provide insight into the history of the tower and the recent restoration. Refreshments to follow the tour on the porch of the summit's rustic Bascom Lodge, an Arts and Crafts structure built in the 1930s.

    Due to its success last year, APTNE and EverGreene Architectural Arts are again offering the plaster workshop for those who could not make it! Join us at EverGreene Architectural Arts in Brooklyn for an intensive half-day workshop focused on plaster systems, with a restoration clinic, visual presentations, studio demonstrations and group hands-on activities. Gain an understanding of investigating, documenting, designing, repairing and replicating historic plaster elements and painted finishes.

Each participant will receive study materials and a bibliography. Breakfast is included in the registration fee.
