Holiday House Tour: Volunteers Needed!

Preservation of Historic Winchester needs volunteers to help lead tours for the Holiday House Tour on December 1 & 2 between 1-5 p.m. Volunteers are needed both inside houses and to lead short walking tours of distances about 0.25-0.5 miles between sites. Please leave your name, contact information, and preferred days and times to volunteer at 540-667-3577 or Volunteers may receive complimentary tour tickets for their volunteerism.

Many of our members also come through for us every year with greenery for the Bough & Dough Shop. If you have boxwood, magnolia, holly, or other evergreens in need of a trim this fall, PHW will begin collecting cuttings after Thanksgiving (around Nov. 28) and may need replenishing through Dec. 7 or 8. Volunteers may be able to go to your location to pick up and/or cut greenery for you, or you may bring cut greenery to the back yard at the Hexagon House. Please feel free to contact us at 540-667-3577 or for more information.

Last but not least, if you are in need of some postcards with the Holiday House Tour information or Bough & Dough Shop brochures, we have extras at the PHW office at the Hexagon House, 530 Amherst St. We expect to have some 8.5×11 posters by next week. Feel free to drop by and pick some up if you are in the neighborhood!

Last but not least, we would like to extend our thanks to Bank of Clarke County, our major Holiday House Tour sponsor. We would not be able to produce our lovely program booklets, brochures, and advertising without their financial support. Be sure to click on the image for a full view of their ad for 2018.
