ABOUT THE TOUR:
The beautiful Boothbay Peninsula is the setting for our tours. Each year we try to include homes and gardens in attractive and unfamiliar locations to give the visitor an opportunity to see our wonderful and varied communities. Some homes are new and some are old, but each has its own special appeal.
You will be delighted to see what our gracious homeowners have accomplished with their properties. If you enjoy seeing different architecture, furnishings, and gardens you will have the opportunity to gather some new ideas, learn a few things about gardens, and just have a fun-filled day in the Boothbay area!
PROCEEDS FROM THE TOUR HELP PROVIDE FUNDS FOR THE MANY PROJECTS OF OUR CLUB:
* Scholarships for advance education concerning the study of ecology, marine biology, horticulture, botany and earth sciences.
* YMCA Camperships for local children
