You too can be Cruise Director for a day, just like Julie McCoy in The Love Boat! The Ballard Historical Society needs guides — we call them docents — for the 2013 Classic Home Tour on Sunday, June 23. Tour docents work a three-hour shift — and get to attend the tour free the other half of the day with a complimentary ticket.
No experience is required, just a love of Ballard and old homes! Docents are placed on each floor of the home and answer questions from tour attendees.
Simply attend our Classic Home Tour docent orientation held one evening in mid-June. There, you will be briefed on tour procedures and will meet the homeowners’ of your assigned house. Many returning volunteer docents will be there as well. If being a docent is not your thing, we are also in need of volunteers for ticket sales at our CHT headquarters, the Sunset Hill Community Clubhouse. Please contact Lesli Billings at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
