Mark it on your calendar. Suggest to your friends that they do the same. The ninth annual C.F.U.W. Heritage Perth Christmas House Tour is scheduled for December 6 and 7, 2014 from 10:30am to 3:30pm daily.
Eight unique homes will be featured on the tour, some historic and some modern but all lovely. They will have been transformed for the holiday season by gifted local decorators, and will be sure to inspire your own decorating. While you are in historic Perth, you can also enjoy our annual Santa Claus Parade on the evening of December 6 and visit the dazzling display of Christmas trees in the Crystal Palace.
Local restaurants, as well as St. James Anglican Church, will offer specially priced lunches to ticket holders during the tour.
Informative bookmarks have been distributed to area businesses which provide more details about the tour. They will serve as reminders to invite your in town and out of town friends to join you for this annual Christmas Season kick-off in Perth. Many visitors have told us that they now make the tour weekend an annual event for reconnecting with family and friends.
Not only is the tour a fun way to see special homes, it also provides an opportunity to invest in the future since all proceeds are used to provide educational awards to deserving and needy women and young girls in their pursuit of advanced education. Proceeds also support literacy and other educational initiatives in area schools and libraries. Since the tour began, over $125,000. have been distributed in Lanark County.
The Canadian Federation of University Women is a voluntary non-profit organization committed to the improvement of the status of women, human rights and to the promotion of Education.
Once again we are aided in our efforts by substantial sponsorships from our local community.
