Preparing Your House of Worship for Winter, Oct. 29

"Preparing Your House of Worship for Winter: A Workshop by the Boston Preservation Alliance" will take place on Saturday, October 29th, at 10 a.m. in St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, 14 Cushing Ave. Dorchester. What can you do to protect your historic religious building from the rigors of the winter ahead? LOTS! Come hear Jeff Shaw of Donham & Sweeney, Architects, and Tom Nutt-Powell from Massachusetts Interfaith Power and Light (MIP&L) discuss quick, easy, and inexpensive ways to minimize weather-related damage and save energy and money at the same time! Topics to be covered will include protecting foundations, walls and roofs, windows and doors; the different challenges facing masonry, wood, and metal; and how thermostats, interior "storm" windows, and added insulation can cut your energy costs and make your congregation and other users more comfortable. Light refreshments will be served. This event is free but space is limited so advance registration is required. Please RSVP to Read more at
