The Kincardine hospital auxiliary extends a warm invitation to the 2012 Christmas Tour of Homes, slated for Nov. 3-4 this year. 

Enjoy the self-guided tour of six area homes, decorated for the holiday season by local merchants and florists. 

Refreshments included in the tour are available at the Kincardine United Church overlooking Victoria Park.

The event runs Saturday, Nov. 3, from 6-9 p.m.; and Sunday, Nov. 4, from 12:30-4:30 p.m.

Tickets are $15 per person and are available at the Kincardine hospital gift shop, Jerome Flowers and Gifts, Kincardine Home Hardware, Quinn Florist Ltd., Harbour Rose Boutique, Kincardine’s Scottish Shop, Dalton Pottery in Ripley or by calling Sylvia at 519-396-3888 or Donna at 519-396-7181. 

Each ticket has a detailed map enclosed with a brief description of each home and the tour can be completed in any order.

Part of this year’s tour, as in past years, a Christmas tree has been donated by Canadian Tire and will be set up in the “parlour” of the home at 786 Princes Street North (the downtown section of Princes Street).

The decorations were purchased from the gift shop through donations by the hospital auxiliary members. The children’s toys under the tree are supplied by Fincher’s Leisure World. Following the tour, this tree will go to a deserving family in the area.

The home at 786 Princes Street North is a beautiful, designated heritage home, owned by Brian and Carolyn Bailey. It was built in the 1860s and has some interesting local history. 

The Kincardine hospital auxiliary gift shop, along with Quinn Florist, has created a true Christmas atmosphere and one you will not want to miss.

Other homes on the tour are at the following locations:

40 Tanya Crescent owned by Warren and Shari Farrell, decorated by I.C.Greenhouses and Dalton Pottery

78 Boiler Beach Road owned by Bob & Pat Cook, decorated by Kincardine Home Hardware

544 Hunter Street owned by Jeff & Judy Fuller, decorated by Harbour Rose Boutique

658 MacYoung Drive, owned by Shirley Thomas and Peter Davidson, decorated by Shirley Thomas and Brian W. Folmer Botanical Gardens and Garden Centre

217 Harbour Street, Harbour Street Brasserie restaurant and home owned by Derek Griffiths and Dianne Chrysler, decorated by Jerome Flowers and Gifts.

Refreshments at the Kincardine United Church Hall, 721 Princes Street North, are donated by auxiliary members, Zehrs, Sobeys, Kwik K and Coffee Culture, with floral arrangements by Quinn Florist Ltd.

This event is a fantastic and fun opportunity to support your hospital, the local businesses and the Kincardine hospital auxiliary. All proceeds are used to purchase medical equipment for the Kincardine hospital.
