Another year for the Tour de Whidbey and Coldwell Banker brokers again volunteered to host the favorite break station at Hedgebrook Farm. Over 250 people came by for water and snacks. The home-made snacks were provided by our brokers and were enjoyed by all who stopped. Coldwell Banker Tara Properties’ brokers are proud to support Whidbey Island community activities and organizations. See you next year!
