Save the Date - House Tour - Sun., Oct 11

Date: 11 August 2020 12:00

Save the date - BHA House Tour is Sunday, October 11 - and, for the first time ever, it is virtual! In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Butchers Hill House Tour Committee has transformed our annual house tour from the one that has been popular for over forty years to an entirely virtual tour via the Zoom platform. So, tell all of your friends and family that live far away that this is their chance! Anyone can take this year's tour. (And that includes those of you that are actually in Butchers Hill, too!)

HOW TO GET A BANNER PRINTED

1. Download the PDF of the size banner you
want. Currently there are two sizes: (a) 3’ X 12’, which will cost you about $45 to $50, or (b) 2’ X 8’, which will cost about $35 to $40 (depending on options, timing). If you want a different size, email Geoffery Moore: Geoff@GeofferyMoore.com.

2. Go to www.BannersOnTheCheap.com. (You are welcome to use another printer if you prefer, but these directions are for using this printer.)

3. On the Home Page under Material, select Vinyl.

4. Select the Size. MAKE SURE the size of PDF you have matches the size you select here.

5. Select the Quantity of banners you want printed. The price will then be displayed.

6. Select: Start From Scratch. This will bring you to the design page.

7. On the design page, on left, click Upload Image, then find the PDF on your computer and
upload it. You will see it appear here.

8. Drag the PDF image from the left to the box on right. If necessary, adjust the edges of
the image to match the dotted lines around the box.

9. Click on Lock. Then click on Save and Continue below. This brings you to new page.

10. See if design looks right. If not, click on Go Back And Edit Design, and do so. Once the design is right, go to Select Your Options on right.

11. Under number 1 Materials, we recommend you select Premium Vinyl Upgrades, for a banner that will last longer in the weather. This adds about $10-$12.

12. Using the bar on the right, move down to 4 Grommets, select Brass Grommets. This adds about $6 and gives you four grommets, one on each corner.

13. Click on Add to Cart below. This will bring you to the cart.

14. Check to see if everything is right on the order. Here, you have options to go back and edit the design or go back and change options.

15. Click Checkout, put in your information, and order.

Any questions? Contact Geoffery Moore: Geoff@GeofferyMoore.com or 603-236-6500.

And thanks for helping with the THANK YOU HEROES campaign!

Butchers Hill Virtual House Tour ~ Sunday, October 11 (ticket sales are closed)

Date: 23 September 2020 12:00
BHA House Tour 2020 poster

This year's Butchers Hill House Tour, on Sunday, October 11, will take place virtually, using the Zoom platform. We are sad that you can't come walk through the homes on the tour, but for everyone's health and safety, we thought this would be a better way to do it this year. And the upside is that those of you that aren't in Baltimore, can "go on" the tour this year, from the comfort of your own home. 

The tour will take you on a walk with its owner through five houses, and between houses our narrator will relate information about our neighborhood. This LIVE tour will start at noon eastern time and will not be recorded. (So don't be late! You'll miss something.) We suggest you log on to the tour several minutes before noon (eastern) so that you are ready when it starts. 

 Tickets for the house tour are $15, and are available via PayPal or credit card below. Just click on ‘Add to Cart’ below and use the + in the Quantity field to enter the quantitiy of tickets you want and click Update. You will receive an emailed receipt. We will use the email address in your PayPal account, so please be sure to check that account.


We will send the Zoom information, including instructions, and a link to the tour book within a few days after you purchase your ticket. Also, we will send a reminder with the Zoom information and the link to the tour book the day before the tour. We will send both of those emails to the one that you use when you purchase the ticket. Please be sure to check that email account.

The tour booklet is in two forms: one is page-by-page and the other spread. The page-by-page format is designed for people to print out (8 1/2" x 11") and read along with the tour. The spread format displays like the booklet is open and is designed for people that want to view it on a screen. Links to each are below. And the page-by-page will be sent with the link in the email.

For those that aren't familiar with Zoom, there will be a link in the email to click on to join the house tour. When you click on that link, you will have the choice of downloading the software or not. You can do this step when you get the Zoom information and save time on the day of the tour.  Alternatively, you can join the tour without downloading the software, if that's your preference.
