Have you ever wanted to open your home to the community?
Here's your chance. Homes are being sought for this year's Symphony Guild Tour of Homes, scheduled for Dec. 11.
â€śLast year we couldn't find enough homes so we had to cancel the tour,â€ť said Eulaine McIntosh, Guild president. â€śNobody wants to cancel the tour, but without the participation, we just couldn't do it.â€ť
This year, David and Marie Justice have agreed to take part in the Tour of Homes, but more homes are needed. McIntosh said it would be ideal to have four to six homes to showcase.
