ESWP sends a big thanks to member Tom Leech for volunteering to speak at the Sept 25 Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council walking tour, which hosted many international visitors.
From the GPAC: “It was a tremendous success, and I think that we made a great connection with the Nepali and Bhutanese community. Your talk was outstanding, and I loved hearing how you described the bridge like a backbone; your enthusiasm for bridges and Pittsburgh history was clearly evident.”
Thank you Tom!
We have been hard at work over the last several months redesigning a site that is dynamic, modern and scalable to fit all of your devices, including handhelds and portables. Please spend some time browsing our new layout and let us know what you like and where we may still need to make improvements. One thing we learned for sure through this conversion: we have an extensive website filled with a lot of information that serves a variety of stakeholders. Like all active websites, we will continue to work on improvements as we move forward. In the meantime, enjoy the newly designed ESWP website and please share your feedback with us!
