From the InterAct stage to us to the Glen Foerd Mansion!

First, InterAct Theatre Company used 180 4” PVC plastic tubes to make the set wall for their production of Uncanny Valley :

Rather than throwing them in a dumpster after the play was over, they loaded them in a truck and brought them to us in the hopes that they would be reused:

And now they have! The Glen Foerd Mansion came to us to get the tubes to help with the mansion’s storm water drainage! The tubes now direct the storm water away from the mansion and onto the lawn, helping them in part of their mission to “preserve and protect the landscape.” Here’s a little more about this fantastic organization’s mission:

The mission of Glen Foerd on the Delaware is to connect visitors to the legacy of Glen Foerd through programs in the arts, nature and history, and to preserve and protect the landscape, buildings, and collections for the enjoyment and enrichment of the community and future generations. The historic estate is located on 18-acres at the confluence of the Poquessing Creek and Delaware River. Glen Foerd is a Fairmount Park property where people of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to enjoy a rich natural landscape, historic buildings, and impressive art collection surrounded by a grand, intact 19th century estate. The site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and its grounds are listed as a Historic American Landscape Survey site, one of only 24 in Pennsylvania.
