Community Matters Lends Help to this Year’s House Tour

Isn’t it great when people step in and just help . . . and without being asked. Such was the case this past week with In all the stress over the last-minute details of the House Tour, I neglected to send the house tour information to, our community’s weekly e-newsletter for local activities and events.

Not to worry . . . the staff at didn’t skip a beat but went ahead and listed the Trust’s 6th Annual Historic House Tour in the newsletter. A couple of days ago, I bumped into some of MainLineNeighbors staff having a meeting in the Cafe at Barnes & Noble. Such a wonderful surprise to be told they had gone ahead and listed the House Tour and that it would be included in the upcoming week’s newsletter too. Don’t you love it when people surprise you and do the unexpected! co-founders Regina Sullivan and Laura Woyak not only keep the community informed of events . . . they are civic-minded and show their support of nonprofit organizations like the Tredyffrin Historic Preservation Trust. As a struggling small historic preservation nonprofit in today’s economy, the Trust could never afford large corporate advertising costs. The weekly e-newsletter has a following of 24,000 members, who like myself, look forward to weekly updates. If you haven’t already done so, I would encourage you to sign up for their e-newsletter . . . a great way to know what’s going on up and down the Main Line. And if you are the owner of a business in the area you might want to consider advertising on their website. A friend, Natalie Zipkin works at and she will help you with any of your advertising needs.

Thanks for ‘having my back’ even when I forgot to ask you!
