Dear Friend,

Fall greetings from the Friends of Pruyn House! We are anticipating another busy and productive year of fulfilling our mission to restore, conserve, and preserve the Pruyn House Complex.Your support of our Annual Appeal allows us to plan for the year ahead in anticipation of the restoration project of the Pruyn House exterior.

We are fortunate to have an active Buildings and Grounds Committee as well as Town of Colonie officials who assist us.This year we completed several projects which included:

Exterior painting of the potting shed

Removal of several dying or diseased trees

Extensive tree pruning

New lighting in the Buhrmaster Barn

Exterior lighting study to prepare for new site lighting

Exterior brickwork study to assist Town of Colonie in preparation for restoration

Our mission for 2019 is to continue to work on the restoration of the Pruyn House façade.We are very fortunate that the Town has also pledged funds for this project which could span three years.We do not know what obstacles we may encounter as we undertake this extensive and expensive preservation project.Therefore, we respectfully request you to consider making a gift to our 2018 Annual Appeal.A donation of any size is genuinely appreciated and allows us to continue our mission of serving as the historical, educational and cultural center of the Town.We strive to make your experience here a memorable one and appreciate your continued commitment to the Pruyn House Complex.
