Volunteers Needed for LCCA’s Annual Holiday House Tour
. LCCA is seeking volunteers to serve as hosts for this year’s Holiday House Tour on Sunday, December 2, 2012. We need 100+ volunteers to staff the homes on the tour, ticketing, and the Wassail reception. In-home hosts provide a presence for security and traffic control, and are provided with information about highlights of their assigned home to help respond to questions. Reception volunteers set up refreshments, refresh them as necessary, and help guide traffic from the sidewalk up to the reception area. This is a full, fun day! While the tour itself is held from 1 to 5 pm, the day begins in the morning with breakfast and a “pre-tour” so all volunteers have the opportunity to see the homes. The reward comes after the tour concludes at 5, with details to come later. Trust us, the day will end on a satisfying note!
This is LCCA’s only annual fundraiser, and we need your help to make it a success. If you’re interested in volunteering for this year’s House Tour, please contact Kristin Thompson, at email@example.com

After the presentations we will have a Q&A with both the candidates for the Education Board as well as the new principals. Beverages, light breakfast, and childcare will be provided.
