May – June 2018 PW’s Worcester’s Third Grade Program: This year four AIA CM members/volunteers supported PW with this  annual education program for 3rd graders. After intensive docent training, volunteers had the opportunity to individually give an hour-long power-point presentation about Worcester’s architectural history to several public school 3rd grade classes. A few days later attendees attended a 4-hour field trip to visit the very buildings we had discussed! The kids Loved It!
