Christmas homes tour scheduled for Dec. 6
Several local homeowners are decking their halls this Christmas and are inviting northeast Kansans to stop by and come inside Dec. 6.
Sponsored by the Holton/Jackson County Chamber of Commerce and in part by the Jackson County Tourism Council, the “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” homes tour has been set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 6.
The tour will include homes owned by Les and Rosemary Wilkerson, Brooks and Tonya Barta, Phillip and Ginger Lloyd, Dennis and Joni White and Brady and Brooke Black.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at Denison State Bank, Holton National Bank, Farmers State Bank and the Holton/Jackson County Chamber of Commerce. The tour is a fund-raiser for the Chamber, it was reported.
Carolyn McKee, Chamber executive director, said that tickets must be purchased in advance at one of the banks or the Chamber office.
“This is the first time the Chamber has sponsored a homes tour,” McKee said. “People really enjoy them, and the community hasn’t had one in several years so we decided to bring it back as an annual event.”
