48th Annual Christmas Home Tour - 2013 PDF Print E-mail


Thank You!

The Christmas Home Tour Committee would like to thank all of the volunteers - church and local community members, who worked so diligently in making the Home Tour a success this year. Whether you were a homeowner, a craftsperson, a baker, a hostess, a committee chair, a decorator or a "behind the scenes" presence, we know who you are, and we could not do it without each and every one of you. It literally takes hundreds to pull it off.

THANK YOU! - Fran Wahl, Dede Alspaugh, and Judy Miller
