Thank you all for a successful 4th Bungalow Tour 2010
I am pleased to share that the 2010 bungalow tour was a success. The tour is the largest annual fundraiser for the Society, so it is always my hope that turnout of tour participants will be strong. We had roughly 300 people through the houses on Sunday, September 26, not a bad number when you consider we took a year off from holding the event and then changed the time of year it took place.

David Olson, president of the BHS, suggested giving this year’s tour a title which would encompass the additional housing styles added to the bungalow roster. He suggested we call the tour “Bungalows and More.” We did just that and, liking the flexibility it allowed us, plan to use it for future tours….
