Princeton Community Housing, the largest provider of affordable housing in Princeton, continued to celebrate its 50th anniversary during an August 29 party with residents, staff, Board, volunteers, and others at Griggs Farm. Dramatic art, photos, and writing, submitted by residents in response to the theme “What does HOME mean to you?” were the focus of the gathering. 

These creative works, mounted by Image Arts as part of a generous donation and displayed on easels provided by Art Sparks LLC, delighted the partygoers. Some of these pieces had been prepared by adult PCH residents in a wonderful class at Harriet Bryan House/Elm Court (provided by the Arts Council of Princeton and taught by Susan Hoenig).  Some others had been created by children who are PCH residents at Princeton Community Village, who were in the YMCA’s Princeton Young Achievers program at Princeton Community Village; Ms. Hoenig also taught them. 

Decorations included the striking PCH logo (in various formats) developed by Three Bears Communications in coordination with PCH.  Paul Schindel, President and Creative Director of Three Bears, participated in the gathering.  

This party was one in a series of events to celebrate the five decades of the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization’s work in the Princeton area, leading up to a Gala on October 26th at The Boathouse at Mercer Lake, featuring highly acclaimed musicians Buddy Miller & Friends!
