AAUW~UWF Home & Kitchen Tour

AAUW~UWF is holding the 23rd Annual Home & Kitchen Tour, from Wednesday through Friday, April 23 – 25. Online registration is now open at https://pt-wa.aauw.net/activities/home-kitchen-tour/. Besides your admission to the tour, donations to AAUW/UWF are always appreciated. It’s a good cause!

This year’s Tour will take advantage of virtual technology and offer the event to viewers everywhere. Anyone interested in our county will enjoy touring special homes, condos, and ship galleys throughout Port Townsend, Port Ludlow, and Marrowstone Island. Also there are interviews with homeowners, architects, and designers.

The 3-day tour will feature maximum flexibility to visit multiple times. Attendees will be able to select a home and control the mouse to see the house, to navigate in a 3D virtual environment, and to stop at interesting points. Another feature is to attend a virtual seminar. It’s also possible to do the Tour in automatic mode and sit back and simply enjoy the walk-through.

Admission to the Tour helps AAUW ~ UWF, that has for more than 70 years raised scholarship and educational funds for students in Jefferson County. Because of the recent strain on the local economy and schools, it has become even more critical to provide much needed support to our schools and ambitious students. Read more about the foundation here.

On KPTZ’s Attention, Please! Larry Stein spoke with two long-time AAUW and Kitchen Tour participants, Cheryl Bentley and Jean Stastny.
