Furnishing Burch House

Thanks to the generosity of Tom Forhan, the PTAP team has a desktop computer and a dorm-type refrigerator with which to outfit the Burch House. The refrigerator will be particularly useful during the May 22 to June 1 ASM field session...the crew will be cooking and eating on site.

The computer will be very helpful as we begin to move the laboratory work out of Annapolis and down to Port Tobacco. We will catalogue materials at the Burch House and, hopefully, reduce the amount of time that it takes us to get from fieldwork to final report (not that we don't already do so at amazingly fast rates).

We are still in need of some basic office furnishings such as a filing cabinet, desk, and desk chair, lamps, etc. All of these donations serve as matches for our various grants and, because the donations are to the Society for the Restoration of Port Tobacco, a 501(3)c charitable organization, they may be tax deductible.

Thank you, Tom.
