Floating Homes Tour Needs Your Help

By Larry Clinton
Our 30th annual open homes tour is Saturday, September 12, and we hope you’ll join us as a volunteer. The tour is the major fundraiser for the Floating Homes Association each year, and it’s also the largest social event in our community, with more than 200 volunteers. Nonresidents are welcome, so if you know of someone who loves or is fascinated by floating homes, please let them know we would welcome their help.
You’ll spend a rewarding day helping appreciative visitors discover our community. Their enthusiasm and gratitude for our hospitality is heartwarming, and will remind you of the many reasons you love living here. Plus, you’ll get to know your neighbors, and to see docks and homes you may not have visited before. Each volunteer works 34 hours, receives a special pass to visit any and all homes on the tour, and may also attend the free after party to be held on Kappas Green.
To volunteer for a specific position or to put your name on the list to be assigned to a position, please register online. Be sure to read the job descriptions and consider any physical limitations you have when signing up for a shift. The sooner you register, the better your chance of getting the shift and position you prefer. The Tour Committee looks forward to your help with another successful tour. Tell your friends, tickets may now be purchased here.
