On November 30th, Get Healthy DeSoto hosted the 4th annual Christmas Home Tour. Thanks to the hard work from committee members, homeowners, volunteers and generous sponsors, we had a most successful day. We were blessed with beautiful weather, an excellent variety of properties, volunteers of good cheer, gracious home owners and a steady stream of visitors throughout the day.
This year we sold 89 sponsor ads, 147 Tour Ticket Books and $408.00 worth of raffle tickets giving us a grand total of $5,539.70. This was a wonderful showing by the community and deserves a rousing “Thank you”!
Committee Members for the event were Chairperson Patrice Hawkins, Karen Huffman, Karen Stringer, Elaine Gannon, Jodi Hendrickson, Felix Milfeld, and Debby Campbell.
Properties on Tour included the De Soto Community Center, First United Methodist Church, and the Villas. Homeowners for the tour were Mr. & Mrs. Steve Steinmetz, Mr. & Mrs. Stan Dix, Mr. & Mrs. Paul Blanchard, Mr. & Mrs. Jimmie Turner, Ms. Janenen Graves, and Mrs. Nancy Mueller.
