A Christmas House Tour Like No Other, in Heritage Perth & District

Step back in time and prepare to be surprised! In tribute to the 200th anniversary of the Perth Military Settlement, The Perth & District Chapter of CFUW is placing a special emphasis on the heritage aspect of the 2016 Heritage Perth & District Christmas House Tour scheduled for the weekend of December 3 & 4. Mark it on your calendar now, and tell your friends to do the same!

Why not devote two days to the tour so there is time to fully appreciate the eight lovely homes, all either historic or traditional and transformed for the holiday season by gifted local decorators and florists. For those from out of town, consider making the 2016 house tour the focus of a destination weekend getaway. There will be extra attractions on offer to keep you entertained throughout your stay - including a Settlerís Dinner, historical play, and opportunity to tour Algonquin Collegeís new Green Technology demonstration building and heritage trade shops. This is also the weekend of Perthís annual Santa Claus Parade, festive fireworks and tree lighting.

Not only is the house tour good fun, it also provides an opportunity to invest in the community. Proceeds are used to support local women in their pursuit of advanced education as well as literacy and other educational initiatives in schools and libraries. Since the tour began 11 years ago, over $150,000 has been awarded to women in Lanark County.

CFUW stands for the Canadian Federation of University Women, a voluntary non-profit organization committed to human rights, promoting education and improving the status of women. The Perth & District Chapter was formed in 1970 and currently has over 100 members.
