The Historic Salisbury Foundation has announced Amy Bauguess as the volunteer chair of OctoberTour 2020.

Bauguess began her volunteer duties with OctoberTour in 2016 as the house manager for the Hanford-Dole House on South Fulton Street. In 2018, she took over duties as head of all tour house managers.

“One of the most delightful privileges of chairing OctoberTour 2020 is observing and interacting with the staff, volunteers and homeowners associated with Historic Salisbury Foundation,” she said. “To be a part of a team of people who start with mere suggestions and then to watch that team branch out into all areas of our community and the ideas and suggestions morph into concrete homes and activities, is truly exciting.

She said OctoberTour 2020 is shaping up to be attractive, as the annual event looks to incorporate some of “Salisbury’s lovely Country Club homes.”

“Also, we are adding some new fun to Bank Street this year and some surprises to our traditional event format,” she said. “I feel very privileged to be allowed to chair OctoberTour again this year!.”

Currently Bauguess works as a property manager for former U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Hanford Dole. Bauguess has often said she has the “best job in the state that no one knows about.” She has worked in various capacities for Dole and the Hanford Family for 25 years.

Bauguess was born in Charlotte and enjoyed a childhood as a “military brat,” living up and down the East Coast. She enjoys volunteering at her church, managing the “desk” for her husband’s lawncare/landscaping business, helping at Rockwell Christian School and assisting as a Rowan County Election Board Official, among other interests. Her passions include her faith, her animals, gardening, cooking, music and, in her rare free time, reading — particularly mysteries.

She lives in Rockwell with husband Scott, two children Logan and Maggie and an eclectic collection of dogs, cats, chickens and a lizard. 

Despite COVID-19, plans for OctoberTour remain intact for October 10-11. Tickets  go on sale April 15th at www.octobertour.com.
