2007 Christmas Tour
Our December 9th Christmas House Tour was a smashing success, with nearly 500 people visiting 11 homes. Highlights included Christmas carols sung by area girl scouts as well as two fully-costumed Santas (Lamont Blowe and Arne Aakre) greeting neighborhood visitors, and Corona the horse provided by Vicki Blasucci for her carriage house. Our eleven homeowners and tour committee volunteers who kept up their Christmas Spirit since planning began in May did a spectacular job in pulling together this substantial event. Part of the tour proceeds were contributed to “Homefirst.” a Plainfield organization providing emergency housing and supportive services to those in need. We’re also grateful to the City for its help with security and with pre-tour street cleanup.
