SAVANNAH, GA – Sept. 18, 2019– Keim Mineral Coatings and Historic Savannah Foundation have rescheduled the “Lunch and Learn” that previously was postponed due to Hurricane Dorian. The event is now slated for Thursday, Oct. 3. The two organizations originally partnered to offer the area’s AIA/CES registered providers and other interested people an opportunity to earn learning credits while enjoying a meal and learning about new product developments.
Those interested in participating are encouraged to join Keim and HSF at either breakfast or lunch on Thursday, Oct. 3 at HSF’s offices, 321 E. York St., for a program and a discussion on hand-crafted mineral silicate paint finishes.
The presentation, which is slightly interactive and participant-friendly, will focus on finishes that chemically bond to concrete, to brick and stone masonry, precast units, CMU block, and mechanically bond to previously-painted mineral-based substrates. Sustainable silicate coatings are mineral-based finishes that provide an unusual combination of superior weather protection, long service life and fire safety with a unique permanent color guarantee.
The one-hour programs start at 9 a.m. (breakfast) or 12 p.m. (lunch) and are free to attend. However, each session is limited to only 20 participants so anyone interested is urged to reserve a spot now by RSVPing to HSF Chief Advancement Officer Nadine Mooers at nmooers@myHSF.org. All providers who attend will earn 1.0 learning unit.
“We’ve enjoyed Keim’s sponsorship support at previous events and they’re a wonderful advocate for the historic preservation work HSF performs throughout the community. A lot of restoration projects benefit from Keim’s products, which help to make possible many of the historically accurate revitalizations and updates done on properties throughout Savannah,” Mooers said. “We’re happy to co-host this learning opportunity with Keim and hope many people will join us on Sept. 5.”
HSF saves buildings, places and stories that define Savannah’s past, present, and future. Following its formation in 1955, HSF started a Revolving Fund to save endangered historic properties. To date, HSF has saved and protected more than 370 buildings throughout Savannah’s historic districts. HSF demonstrates the cultural, social and economic benefits of preservation as good public policy by proving that preservation and progress go hand-in-hand.
