What a day! The wind, the rain, and the falling temperatures...... to think just a day or 2 ago the temps were over 100 and today in the mid 6o's.....Well that didn't keep many people from visiting The Historical Society of Ocean Grove 44th Annual House Tour.
I was a docent for the tour this year as well as last year and must say I really enjoy doing so..... You can work in the morning or the afternoon, you get to tour all the houses or tents and be the first in line,......and you don't have to pay for your tickets....they are always looking for people to docent, maybe next year you may decide to do so.....contact the Historical Society for details.
