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.

germaine(1)-320x228

KPTZ is an ALL volunteer radio station, and the magic happens through the efforts and gifts people like Germaine bring. KPTZ has so many wonderful volunteers who are committed to making KPTZ the best community radio station it can be.

Please join us in thanking Germaine Arthur, and countless others who show every day, together we are – KPTZ Eclectic, Authentic Community Radio!

ABOUT GERMAINE: Germaine is a great contributor to our community. Germaine not only volunteers her time here at KPTZ, she also volunteers for Habitat for Humanity and is very involved with the Port Townsend Community Chorus and Ukuleles Unite.

Germaine and her husband Bernie moved to Port Townsend in 1969 to start a boat building company, Skookum Marine Construction. They have four children and six grandchildren, and recently celebrated their 52nd anniversary. She says her favorite KPTZ show is Ruby Fitch’s Beach Rubble – ” truly eclectic and very interesting.” says Germaine.

How long have you volunteered at KPTZ? I have been coming for the past year and a half. Just a couple of months from when KPTZ first aired.

Why did you decide to volunteer with KPTZ? I was talking with a friend of mine who is on the board of directors and told me they were looking for volunteers to help answer phones.

What do you like most about volunteering here? I like meeting and working with interesting people I would not otherwise meet.

I understand you play a ukulele, so you must be a lover of music. What genres of music do you like best? Classical, especially Choral music, Big Band music from the 40’s and Blue Grass.

Will we ever be able to hear you play your ukulele on air? NO!

Haha, we will try and get her to come in sometime we hope with her ukulele… You can find out more about Germaine and her Ukulele friends at ukulelesunite.com.
