Come and join us in a Christmas tour of some local homes. Several Grand Valley residents have decked their halls for a fund raiser benefiting the arts.
Under the headline, "Seasonal Sights and Smells, All on Tour," Reporter Melinda Mawdsley wrote in the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel:
"Evelyn Brady’s home even smelled like Christmas."
"The scents of cinnamon, vanilla and fresh evergreen followed Brady around like a shadow as she walked from room to room, showing off her Christmas display."
"The Brady Quarter Horse Ranch in Clifton is one of five homes featured in this year’s Holiday Tour of Homes on Dec. 6 and 7, and Brady is taking her spot in this year’s tour seriously."
“'We are just a Christmas family,' Brady said."
"The Holiday Tour of Homes is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Grand Junction Symphony Guild, which helps fund the Grand Junction Symphony and various children’s concerts throughout the year.
"Holiday Tour of Homes tickets are $15 and can be purchased at City Market, Albertsons, Safeway and the Grand Junction Symphony office. Tickets enable people to tour the inside of the homes, which all will be decorated differently for the holiday season."
"At 6 p.m. Dec. 5, there is a homemade soup supper at Holy Family Elementary School. Tickets for the supper are $40 and include a ticket for the Holiday Tour of Homes.
For more information, call 241-8671."
