59th Annual House Tour – May 2008

The key to success for the Club’s annual House Tour is all of the wonderful Smith alumnae (and friends) who volunteer to work on the tour each year! We are proud to have supported so many Smith students through the incredible fundraising efforts of the tour. New volunteers are always needed to ensure the Tour’s future success. Volunteer commitments range from only a few hours on Tour day to sharing your energy and enthusiasm over the months leading up to the tour, but all jobs share one common element – each and every job is essential to the tour’s success!

If you want to keep this Club tradition alive, be sure to contact Tory Foster Van Voorhis, the 2007 House Tour chair, and let her know how you can help.
