Thank you, Open House Melbourne!

August 10, 2014

OHM_certificate of appreciation_Paige ChoAs you all (maybe) know, I’m a huge nerd when it comes to anything related to Melbourne, architecture, history and any combination of those three things.

I volunteered at Open House Melbourne a couple of weeks ago, and yes, I was one of the girls selling event programs inside the shipping crate at Melbourne Town Hall (check it!). Getting thrown right in the midst of all the activity and buzz was awesome, and I got to work alongside some truly lovely folks. And then an elderly man dressed as a tram inspector gave me a half penny from 1909 for answering a history pop quiz correctly. But maybe that’s a story for another time.

On top of selling books and pointing people in various directions, I also won a building ballot and got to walk on the Melbourne Central roof top and inside the Glass Dome. Can’t wait for next year.

(P.S. To everyone who complained that they didn’t know about the ballots or volunteer sign-up, subscribe to their e-newsletter via their site here.)
