We have a full complement of open homes on Main, Liberty and South 40 docks, thanks to the efforts of Jane Clinton and Michele Affronte - and to the generosity of the participating homeowners. At least 5 of this year's homes will be on the tour for the first time.
Volunteer signups are being accepted at SignUp – CLICK HERE The earlier you register, the better your chance of getting your first choice of assignment and shift. Volunteers work a half day, and get to take the tour for free. They'll also get a free commemorative t-shirt and an invitation to a free volunteer thank-you party, catered by Whole Foods, immediately after the tour.
We're lining up a full slate of food, refreshments and entertainment on Kappas Green: local artists, writers and artisans, as well as exhibits by waterfront nonprofits. To participate, or to recommend a worthy nonprofit, contact Teddie Hathaway: email@example.com
Julie Durbin is scheduling live music all day and for the post-tour volunteer party. Parking for the Tour will once again be across the freeway at the Gateway Center, with shuttle bus service available from 9:30 AM (for morning volunteers) until the volunteer party ends at 6:00 PM. A shuttle will also run from Kappas Green to Liberty Dock, where folks can take an easy walk to any of the open homes.
This is always a fun day for all - attendees and volunteers alike. We hope you'll join us for the biggest community event of the year.
