LCCA House Tour - Volunteers Needed

Please consider volunteering for this year's LCCA House Tour - it's always a fun time and a great way to explore the neighborhood and get to know your community. We start with a volunteer breakfast, then a private pre-tour of the homes, followed by a day of volunteering, and a fabulous after-party. . .Below is the message from Tim Christenten, our volunteer coordinator, with more details. You can reach him at:

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Plans are nearly finalized for the 28th annual Logan Circle Holiday House Tour. Tickets and posters have been printed, the program is about to go to the printer, and we have nine lovely homes scheduled for the tour.

I am writing today because we still need more volunteers. At the moment we have 34; I need at least twice that number to properly staff the homes and the Wassail reception. If each of you could recruit one additional person we would meet our goal. That person could be a spouse/partner/SO, a friend, a relative, a colleague, or a

Please consider this an urgent request and respond as soon as you possibly can with a name and e-mail address. I will be making home assignments early next week.

Mugging - 1200 Block of N NW

We wanted to pass this along from Bob Ellison, ANC Commissioner for 2F04.

* * *

Neighbors -

Last night (Tuesday, November 14) one of the residents at 1205 N Street was mugged at gun point. As I understand our neighbor was not harmed and the police caught one of the muggers, but not the one with the gun. The muggers were sitting on the steps outside the front door to 1205 N Street and held up the man as he went to enter the building. This is a reminder to be vigilant.

Please immediately contact 911 if you notice suspicious activity. After you call 911, please contact Lt. Smith. If you need his email or cell number, please contact us at or

Volunteers Needed for LCCA’s Annual Holiday House Tour

LCCA is seeking volunteers to serve as hosts for this year’s Holiday House Tour on Sunday, December 3. We need 50+ volunteers to staff the homes on the tour and the Wassail that concludes the tour at Studio Theatre.

In-home hosts provide a presence for security and traffic control, and are provided with information about highlights of their assigned home to help respond to questions. Wassail volunteers set up refreshments, refresh them as necessary, and help guide traffic from the sidewalk to the appropriate entrance and reception area.

This is a full, fun day. While the tour itself is held from 1 to 5 p.m., the day begins in the morning with breakfast and a “pre-tour” so all volunteers have the opportunity to see the homes. The reward comes after the tour concludes at 5, with details to come later. Trust us, the day will end on a satisfying note.

This is LCCA’s only annual fundraiser and we need you to help make it a success. Please note that all volunteers must purchase a ticket, and we make a nominal charge for the breakfast.

If you’re interested in volunteering for this year’s House Tour, please contact Tim Christensen, volunteer coordinator, at
