CROP Assists at the Annual Cottage Tour
CROP was honored to be asked by the Rehoboth Art League (RAL) to provide volunteer docents for their annual Cottage Tour, which returned to in-person tours this year. And CROP answered the call.
On July 11 and 12, 14 volunteers, including four other community members, were assigned a beautiful home in Canal Corkran. CROP leaders held training sessions ahead of time, and all docents were ready and eager to tell patrons about the home’s features, notable artworks, and unique furniture pieces and antiques.
Over 700 people enjoyed seeing and hearing about the home over the two days. This was a first-time CROPortunity, and RAL is looking forward to CROP returning next year. Many thanks to both docent teams! ▼
