From the Preservation Pittsburgh board:

It is my pleasure to notify you that Preservation Pittsburgh‘s Board has selected you to receive this year’s Mary J. Paradise Community Preservation Award.  This award recognizes a community group who worked to further historic preservation as a public good within the City of Pittsburgh.

Specifically, that Board wishes to acknowledge the significant contributions surrounding the once and future Albright United Methodist Church.  We also would like to recognize your community advocacy in educating the public about the building’s history and the role it plays as an aesthetically integral part of Bloomfield.

We are honored to have our efforts to preserve and reuse the Albright Church building recognized by Preservation Pittsburgh. We are delighted that so many members of the community have come together to ensure that Albright remains a bright spot in the Bloomfield neighborhood.
