Recently, during the traditional third weekend of October, the women of Trinity Episcopal Church hosted the 60th annual House Tour. We thank each of the women (shown in the photo), as well as our founding house tour and flower matriarch Lois Snead, for decades of dedicated hard work to make this Rappahannock tradition a resounding success since 1956.
This year, we are especially grateful to homeowners Judy DeSarno, David and Lotte Leive and Nina and Colby May for generously providing us their beautiful and interesting houses for guests to tour during the weekend. We raised nearly $7,000, most of which goes to local causes such as Shop with a Deputy, Christmas for Needy Families, Rappahannock County’s volunteer fire and rescue squads, the Senior Center, social services and the Rappahannock Food Pantry. Farther afield we send money for a Haitian trade school, and to help abandoned and abused babies in South Africa.
We also are thankful to Ronald Stolk, our guest organist and music director, for the glorious service of Evensong which, along with a festive reception, celebrated a spectacular weekend.
Our thanks to you, the Rappahannock community, for joining us. We trust that you enjoyed the tour, and with us, look forward to the third weekend in October 2017.
