30th Anniversary of Gyumri's Devastating Earthquake
Thanks to all our supporters who have donated to AiP's Fundraising Campaign for Gyumri, Armenia. Our goal for Phase 1 is $2,000 in 2 months. August 31 marks the end of Phase 1, so you still have time. Help us reach our goal!
You will join a new partnership between you, AiP, and Gyumri’s residents to revitalize the community’s economy through heritage tourism.
Gyumri is losing its battle against job loss, depopulation and economic decline. 2018 marks the 30th anniversary of the devastating Spitak earthquake. The city has never recovered. Half the city was destroyed, 25,000 people died, 140,000 injured, 16,000 rescued from the rubble, industries were destroyed.
The city has initiated a plan, and heritage tourism is the key.
#GivetoGyumri - It's in Your Hands!

Scotland Success - Glasshouse Completely Glazed!
Thanks to 21 incredible AiP jammers, who didn't mind some hard work, the Burgie Edwardian Glasshouse is now completely enclosed with glass. The June team completed all the prep work, and the Sept/Oct team put in around 250 panes of glass in just two weeks. We're now all linseed oil putty and glass cutting experts!.
AiP is looking for sponsors to continue conservation work in 2019. The historic east wing is near collapse and would be a great loss. Join us at this environmentally important project. Contact AiP to support this valuable effort.
