Choate Interior Construction Company Donates $2,500 to Historic Savannah Foundation’s Hands On History Camp

SAVANNAH, Ga. – Choate Interior Construction Company recently presented a $2,500 check to Historic Savannah Foundation, a leading preservation organization committed to preserving and protecting Savannah’s heritage, as title sponsor of its Hands On History Camp, a week-long program geared towards giving middle and high school students an overview of the field of historic preservation. The camp was presented in partnership with support from the City of Savannah Department of Cultural Affairs’ Weave-A-Dream program and Gulfstream Aerospace Corp.

“Programs such as Historic Savannah Foundation’s Hands on History Camp provide today’s youth with an opportunity to learn about the necessity to preserve the rich history of our City in an interactive environment. Choate Interior Construction is pleased to be able to support this program, as it promotes an invaluable education and strong sense of responsibility to the importance of future preservation – all of which are necessary to be successful in the construction industry,” said Robbie Stewart, project executive.

Students participating in the Hands On History Camp had the opportunity to enjoy various educational experiences, including touring various historic locations including the Massie Heritage Center, Old Fort Jackson, the Tybee Island Light Station, the Coastal Heritage Society’s Georgia State Railroad Museum and participate in masonry repointing and other hands-on activities.

“Thanks to the generous underwriting of Choate Interior Construction Company, the City of Savannah’s Department of Cultural Affairs’ Weave-A-Dream program, and Gulfstream, this camp is free of charge to all participating students,” said Daniel Carey, president and CEO of Historic Savannah Foundation. “By learning in an interactive way about conservation, stewardship and recycling, these young students become the preservationists of tomorrow.”

The Hands-On History Camp celebrated camp graduation on June 2.
