St. James’ Country Homes Tour
On behalf of the Anglican Parish of Vaudreuil and the Ladies of St. James’ Church, I would like to thank all those who made this year's Country Homes Tour such a success.
Thanks go to the Homes Tour Organizing committee, the house sitters and parkers and their captains, the hospitality team, the dessert team, the flower committee, the musicians, the writers, the photographer, the publicist, the ticket outlets (Décor et Tissus Serenity, SourceSanté, Boutique Alena Kirby and Le Panier), the Town of Hudson, the Community Patrol,Cody Gilmour and her team for the delicious lunch at St. James’ and the ladies of St. Mary's for theirs. This is a true community event which calls on the help of hundreds of volunteers.
I would also like to thank Your Local Journal for its support of the Country Homes Tour. The articles about the houses were presented in an eye-catching way and really created excitement leading up to the tour.
I especially want to thank the homeowners who graciously welcomed hundreds of people through their doors. They worked so hard to make the houses and grounds look their very best. Without them, there could be no tour.
We have had very positive feedback from many of the attendees. Their enthusiasm, and indeed the enthusiasm of all volunteers involved, wasn’t dampened by the rain and everyone enjoyed the tour immensely.
Attendees look forward to next year’s tour with great anticipation, and we look forward to hosting them in 2017.
Thank you, one and all!
Betsy Aird, Convenor
