The 34th Corn Hill Holiday Tour of Homes came roaring back in December and was a resounding success – thanks to Joyce Steel and her intrepid team of volunteers.
The Committee resolved to find a way to offer the tour amidst rising pandemic numbers – the tour groups were smaller, masks were required for all participants, the amazing cookies were individually bagged, and plenty of hand sanitizer was available. None of these measures dampened the enthusiasm of the attendees, who were just happy to have the tours back to kick off their Christmas holidays. And best of all – Corn Hill neighbors were re-engaged with each other and neighborhood spirit rekindled!
As the reviews began to come in, it was evident that the smaller group size made for a more intimate experience. That, along with knowledgeable tour guides, distinctly different homes, unique Christmas decorations, and the enthusiasm of the homeowners, made this one of the best home tours ever!
Many thanks to the legion of past and present neighbors and the many friends who made this Holiday House Tour possible. It really does take a village to pull off an event like this!
