Vankleek Hill opens several homes to Christmas tour


People came out in droves to get a glimpse of some of the finest homes in VankleekHill all dressed up for Christmas at the annual Vankleek Hill Christmas Home Tour. Six homes were professionally decora- ted for the event that raises money for local charities and worthy causes. Each one was inspiringly decorated for the holidays giving visitors some great decorating ideas, not only for Christmas, but for every day. “The houses are just beautiful,” said CaroleMacLeod from Green Valley. “I’ve gotten some really good decorating ideas.” The Higginson home was one of the stops along the tour, all decked out with Christmas spirit. A table set for 16 by Rob McIntosh was in the main hall, with tickets available for a chance to win everything on the table. Ticket sales went toward the Arbor Gallery as well as Higginson Tower. The Higginson home is now home to the Arbor Gallery that showcases local and visiting artists work, and holds several events throughout the year. Shuttle buses carried visitors from one home to the next, as well as to Beau’s Brewe- ry for a taste and a tour. There were line ups

There were long line ups at some of the homes on the tours, but no one seemed tomind. People were chatting and getting to know one another discussing their favourite sites.

outside of the homes with people waiting to get in and see a glimpse of Christmas in each home. Some lines went right around the corner, but people didn’t seem tomind as the spirit was light and jovial. More than houses Other than visiting spectacular homes, there was plenty to do during the Christ-

mas Home Tour. A photo booth in a vintage sleigh was available for those who wanted to don luxurious capes, jackets and bonnets from the last century and pose with friends. The sleigh was provided by Ouimet Farms Adventures and the capes, bonnets and shawls were provided by Grace Clermont. Professional photographer Jan Amell took photos for those who wanted a souvenir of the day. Half the proceeds from the photo booth went to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). High Tea was offered at the Trillium Tea Room with three settings offering all kinds of tea, fruit, cheese, salad, choice of entrées and dessert finale and cookies. Some ladies visiting fromQuebec arrived donning their best hats for the occasion. The Knox Bell Choir performed at Knox Presbyterian Church in the afternoon, fol- lowed by coffee, tea, and sweets. Home- made fruitcake made by Dale Garvin was on sale at the Review office, with proceeds going towards Sacha’s Park. The Vankleek Hill Museum held a Quilt Show, showing off beautiful quilts made by local people, and a bake sale was going on on Main Street with proceeds going to St. Grégoire Church. St. John’s Anglican ChurchHall offered a lunch with soup, sandwiches, desserts, crafts and a bake table. Knox Presbyterian Church also offered a lunch with home-made soup, sandwiches, dessert, tea and coffee. The Trinity United Church had a breakfast with coffee, tea, muffins, breads, and biscotti, all home-made, and later in the day offered coffee, tea, home-made pies and desserts. The Vankleek Hill Farmers’ Market held their regular market with local foods, bread, meats, pickles, jams, jellies, soaps, soup, coffee, baked goods, treats andmuchmore. And the Vankleek Hill Vineyard, Vankleek Hill’s newest enterprise, offered a taste and visit of their beautiful location, all decorated for the holidays. Many of the vendors also set up shop just outside of the homes on the tour selling jams, chocolates, jewellery and more. The day was once again a great success with visitors from all over getting into the Christmas spirit.

The Christmas decorations on each of the homes on the tour were just beautiful.
