Highlights of 2016 Tour
The 2016 ECA Home & Garden Tour was a huge success! Everywhere we went people who attended the tour were talking about how good the selection of homes was for this year's tour. And ticket sales reflected this. We sold 485 tickets, the most since about 2010.
Congratulations are much in order for this year's chair, Holly Foster. A new addition to the ECA Board of Directors, and relatively new to the neighborhood, Holly jumped in and took over quickly last winter. And what a great job she did! She recruited 10 homeowners to participate, and the variety of homes was stunning. From a large Victorian home to a small duplex townhouse, and an artist's studio and garden to a penthouse apartment with spectacular views of the city, this year's offerings were exceptionally diverse. And folks loved it!
But in addition, Holly made an immense contribution by increased advertising revenues in the 2016 Tour Program by almost 30%. Revenues from advertising go directly into the ECA grant program fund. The next round of grant requests is due in September and will be awarded in October. Almost every restaurant on the peninsula advertised in this year's program!
Program design was provided by Aimee Merchant and photography by Mark Duehmig. Home illustrations were done by Merrilynne Hendrickson. Additional committee members included Marie King, Kim Richer, John McLeod, Pam Henry, Judy Moore, Meg Moffatt, and members of the ECA Board who fill various support roles. Many thanks to all who worked to make this year's Eastport Home & Garden Tour a success.
