This year, five Big Spring couples are opening their homes and spreading Christmas cheer as part of the 2011 Tour of Homes.
â€śThere is a great variety of homes this year. Each house brings something different and they are all pretty neat,â€ť Eulaine McIntosh, president of the Big Spring Symphony Guild, said.
Area residents will have an opportunity to tour these five homes from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday.
Completion is on the horizon.
It may be a little more than 90 days behind the expected date, but the end is finally in sight.
Construction on the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club started around February of this year and the keys to the building will be received Monday, according to Maj. Orville Chambless.
â€śWe are real excited about the possibilities, not only to expand the programs we have now, but also for the ability to offer new programs to the community,â€ť Chambless said.
