L.G. Woman’s Club to host Holiday Tour of Homes


By Melissa Robinson
Contributing Editor 

  Wreaths are being hung and lights are being strung, just in time for the second annual Locust Grove Woman’s Club Christmas Tour of Homes, to be held on Saturday, December 7, 2013.

During the 2012 tour Vanetta Brown shared some of the history of Shoal Creek Baptist Church, one of Locust Grove’s important landmarks.                                                      Special photo

  A total of nine homes are on the tour this year, including five favorites from last year’s tour and four new destinations. The tour will begin at the L.G. Woman’s Club, where guests will enjoy refreshments. There will also be crafts and goods for sale, and those interested may set up a table on the day of the tour for $10.

  Jane Lute, club member and one of the event’s organizers, said that last year’s tour was such a great success, the women decided to continue the tradition.

  “It was successful for us last year, and it was fun and the community really enjoyed it,” said Lute.

  Addresses of the homes on the tour will not be released until the day of the event and participants will need to check in at the Locust Grove Woman’s Clubhouse to obtain a map. The self-guided tour will begin and 11 a.m. and end at 4 p.m.

  Lute said that the homes on the tour this year will bring a new element to the tour. In one of the homes, the owner found an old trunk containing a family quilt, and it’s reported that in another home, a ghost is in residence.

  Tickets are $10 and may be purchased in advance at the French Market, Moye’s Pharmacy in Locust Grove, Old South Ceramics, Zebra House or through Woman’s Club members. Tickets may also be purchased at the Woman’s Clubhouse, located at 64 Club Drive, Locust Grove.

  For more information on the Tour of Homes, call Jane at 770-957-2181. For information on having a craft table at the clubhouse, call Peggy 678-446-8915.
