URBAN LIFE ||
The Landmark Society of Western NY has recently formed a Young Professionals group: Young Urban Preservationists. We love what this new group is about: in their own words they "are a new group of youngish folks interested in preservation and community revitalization. We come from various walks of life and various professions—lawyers, planners, doctors, veterinarians, architects, writers, artists—but we all have one thing in common: we care about our communities and we believe our historic resources play an important role in any community’s revitalization."
The Young Urban Preservationists have held a number of events since they formed in March. The Young Urban. Their kick-off was in March at Black Button Distilling:
Their second event in May was to launch Where the #&@% Am I?, a project launched to tell the stories of the historical places we live, play, and work at here in Rochester.
If this is something that looks interesting to you, you might want to get out and try their next event. It's a great way to get out, have some fun, and meet some like-minded people here in our city - check it out!
Event Description: "Grab your bikes, your smart phone, a few friends and join the Young Urban Preservationists (or YUPs—a group of The Landmark Society) for Rochester’s first bike scavenger hunt, followed by a few well-deserved drinks at LUX Bar & Lounge. You’ll see some of Rochester’s best known gems and little known secrets, you’ll get some exercise, and you might even learn something new about the Flower City."
Event Details: Saturday, July 12th 1pm Departure from Star Alley
