There were twelve Seattle floating homes on the tour this year in both Eastlake and Westlake. We had 6 electric boats going back and forth across Lake Union as well as buses for ticket holders to go back and forth.
The theme this year was Wonderful Water Colors and co-chair Sue Jostrom was responsible for the beautiful pieces of art in the ticket/brochure. Courtney and Molly coordinated roughly 100 volunteers over two different shifts. Jann , Melissa, and LeAnne were at Will Call passing out tickets to the purchasers of the sold out tour. There were 1200 tickets sold this year and it was a success all the way around.
Thank you to Katie Herrick for staying late to make sure that boat riders were not stranded and thanks to Brian Olsen and Jim Dougherty for being two of the twelve Captains crossing Lake Union on what was a very busy day on the lake! Thanks to Rick and Joyce Miner for providing the signage for us and thank you to Tricia Rendina and Joyce Black for being co-chairs and organizing sponsors, etc. This was a huge collaborative effort which goes back many months.
