Homes First Competes!

A monumental tie tying competition took place at Strachan House in support of our upcoming event Tie One On.

Homes First staff competed to see who could tie a tie the fastest! But who won the competition?! 

Was it Fast-Fingered Francine Robinson? Was it Mawkish Michael Lyster? Was it Ablazing Alva Lambert? Was it Better-Watch-Out-Brenda Deandrade? Check out our short fun video of the event to find out who took home gold and will go on to compete at Tie One On’s finals on May 7th!
