Dessert Auction a Great Success

Posted by: danaapti on Saturday, October 15, 2011 at 2:00:00 am

Well, APTers love their desserts!  To help raise funds for the student scholarship fund, the amazing desserts by Fairmont hotel’s pastry chef, D’oyen Christie, were auctioned off table by table. Bids flew around by the hundreds with one table bidding against each other. Never has the anticipation for dessert been so fraught with strategy of bidding. Can’t wait to get the cupcake tower for which we successfully bid.

Welcome to the APT Blog

"It has been said that, at its best, preservation engages the past in a conversation with the present over a mutual concern for the future."
- William Murtagh, Keeping Time: The History and Theory of Preservation in America

In our increasingly digital age, the face and form of this conversation is transforming. Social media has become a driving and influential force in every aspect of our lives: politics, community, religion, entertainment. It should be no surprise that the preservation field is wholeheartedly embracing social media outlets. A quick internet search of something as simple as "historic preservation blog" resulted in more than 86,000 results.

The Association for Preservation Technology International is pleased to add our voices to this new conversation.

For over forty years, APT has been a leader in preservation technology, providing not only education and technical training opportunities but also providing a social venue for the sharing of experience and knowledge. This blog is a new approach to hosting our part of the conversation between the past and the present, developed around a user-generated dialogue and aimed at promoting interaction and participation.
