The Never Ending Raffle
Joe Collie reports that the bike was again advertised in the Laconia Daily Sun this past week. There were a couple of nibbles but, so far, no bites. The bike will next be advertised in The Citizen if a lead, earlier in the week, does not pan out.

Paul Cotton reported on his findings at Harley Davidson dealerships over the past weekend. The board will discuss the bike at next week’s meeting. Paul noted, while out shopping, he picked himself up a new bike (see below).

Meeting at One Mill Plaza, the club saw a presentation by the NH Chapter of the American Institute of Architecture. Speakers were Sonya Misiaszek and Tom House. AIA is a professional organization that helps educate the public about architecture and it’s role in society. 90% of architects in this country belong to AIA and more than 200 are licensed in New Hampshire. The mission of the organization is to act as advisories to the public on architecture, educate the public, and strive for design excellence. Tom showed displays of the recent winners at the AIA awards, which have been handed out since 1983. Tom is a jury for the awards and he is also the coordinator of the intern development program for emerging professional architects. Sonya outlines 3 outreach initiatives undertaken by the group. These include the Learning By Design program, which is targeted at 4th graders with an interest in architecture; the Box City program, in which whole schools, grade 5 down through kindergarten plan entire communities in scale using boxes and other materials; and the Environmental Guild, which is working on “green buildings” and new technologies in design and architecture. Sonya can be reached at sonya@misiaszekturpin.com and Tom is available at thouse@osullivanarchitects.com. By the way…ask Joe Adrignola where Sonya’s office is located.
