For the small price of $5 per person, per calendar year, PHCA membership brings the quarterly Polish Hill Voice to your home and gives you a vote on neighborhood issues. And, of course, the satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting your friendly neighborhood organization.
Now, PHCA membership has another benefit. The PHCA has just joined the Heinz History Center Affiliates program (HCAP). Among other things, this means that we can tap the knowledge and resources of the History Center to help us develop the Polish Hill archive.
But here’s the big news for PHCA members: now you can get free admission for up to four people at the History Center. To get the free admission, you must show your PHCA membership card and mention the HCAP program. If you haven’t visited the History Center yet, please make a trip. This is a great museum for all ages. At the moment, they have a new show about the Civil War, in addition to the permanent collection and Pittsburgh: a Tradition of Innovation and the Sports Museum.
