New Tour Vision Needs Volunteers

Proud Neighbors of Collingswood annual Porch  Brunch and House Tour wants your commitment now to assist on the Sunday after Mother’s Day, May 18, 12014.  Celebrating Proud Neighbors 31st anniversary, this civic organization is expanding their popular event to feature open-air street festivities along Harvard Avenue including cooking demonstrations by local chefs, musicians, artists, fashion modeling, interior designers, home improvement insights and preservation tips.  All this is in addition to the popular brunch which will be served on a Greek Revival Haddon Avenue porch and six tour homes located exclusively on Harvard Avenue.  In order to make this tour a success, Proud Neighbors invites volunteer participation.  Perhaps you would consider assisting by:

– Donating a homemade dessert and/or muffins for Brunch

– Tour greeter (which is a low-commitment way to help)

– Pedestrian Traffic Coordinator or Day-of-event Ticket Seller

– Poster placement volunteer

– Logistics including street closures, bathrooms, exhibit setup

– Loan 10 x 10 tent to Proud Neighbors for this one day

– Recruit Men and Women as Volunteers for a shift on tour day

– Enlist Boy Scouts/others to assist with tent setup and take-down

– Motivate residents to volunteer and facilitate supporters to maximize participation

– Develop new and imaginative publicity for the brunch and tour

– Raise awareness about Proud Neighbors’ event by giving talks to groups

– Seek Photo opportunities with the media to promote Proud Neighbors Brunch and Tour

If you are interested in participating or have questions about the tour, please email Proud Neighbors at or phone 609-707-3684.  Proud Neighbors of Collingswood is a local, non-profit, all volunteer civic organization.  Proceeds from this event are earmarked to continue to promote awareness about restoration and historic preservation in the Collingswood Community.
