Even though Mondays are kind of a bummer, it always feels like a fresh start. Every Monday I remind myself to be more patient with my children and vow to clean the baseboards or blinds or some other neglected surface in our house.
This Monday, I am getting back to volunteer work. San Marco Preservation Society is looking for volunteers for the Tour of Homes. The Tour is one of my favorite holiday activities. I love to see all the houses decorated and meet up with neighbors along the way. It always feels like Christmas is on its way once the Tour happens. The Tour is a large undertaking requiring lots of volunteers to do all sorts of things like punch tickets, stand in the homes during the Tour to help guests, sell tickets, and on and on. I can tailor my volunteer obligations around my schedule since they need help leading up to the Tour as well as the weekend of the Tour.
Sound like fun? Email Doug Skiles at firstname.lastname@example.org and join me. Let’s make the 2011 Tour of Homes the best ever.
