• A Piece of RSE History Returns Home +

    You Find the Most Amazing Things In Thrift Stores One day last spring, a letter arrived at 1501 Sage Ave. Inside the envelope was a letter from Janice Brown.

She did some internet sleuthing and said it “…led me to the Rensselaer Society of Engineers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.”  She kindly sent us the Pin with a nice note.  Many thanks to Janice for taking the time to send us the Pin.  So, if anyone is missing their pin…, start looking Read More

  • Real Estate Officer Update +

    The Kitchen Finally Gets A Real Fan! It’s been a reasonably quiet few months for the House.  The Junior Membership replaced the kitchen floor with an epoxy composite during Work Week 2017.  This installation has improved cleanliness and traction.  Our insurance provider stopped by for a quick inspection, and now we’re adding some nice steel railings to the Front Porch staircase on the Union side.  At the Spring ’18 Society Meeting, the Junior Membership was presented a plaque, to be mounted in the Trophy Hall, recognizing their gift of main space light fixture restoration.
