Thank you for including my home on the 2012 Home Tour. Being on the tour was such a fun experience! All of the staff, volunteers and people attending the tour were wonderful. I made many new friends and learned so much about the history of my home and our community. Above all, it was my pleasure to know I played a small role in supporting such a great organization’s mission to improve the academic and economic success of children and families in our community.  I would highly recommend my friends to participate in this great experience!!!

 In 2003 I opened my home for the Home Tour to help raise funds for the Children at the Achievement center. I found it to be a gratifying experience. All the volunteers were so helpful. I choose to stay in my home and greet the ladies attending the tour, many of which I knew.  It warmed my heart to know that by sharing my home on the tour I was able to help support the children in our community.

My home was on the House Tour ten years ago and my entire family enjoyed the experience, especially my husband who was quite pleased to have me finish all those tiny projects you always put off.  It was such a pleasure to have my home spruced up to enjoy for a long time afterwards.  My home was staffed with a volunteer in each room, ,many of whom were my friends.  The volunteers were all knowledgeable, friendly and helpful to all the visitors who thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It was a pleasure to have my home help raise money for such an important local charity and I would happily do it again.
