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!
