Tour of Homes tickets available

Tickets for the 23rd Annual Holiday Tour of Homes to benefit the Northwest Georgia Family Crisis Center are now on sale. The event is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 7.

Four homeowners have graciously opened their homes to the tour. Their hospitality allows tour participants to enjoy a lovely holiday tradition and obtain beautiful decorating ideas while supporting a worthwhile cause.

Each home represents a very unique architectural style and distinctive decorating flair. This year’s tour features the homes of Dottie S. Boring, Mr. and Mrs. Ken Dong, Lee and Dana Phillips and Kellie Smith, and Chris Erber and Brenda Smith.

Home tours begin at 5 p.m. The tour is self-paced and the homes can be visited and enjoyed in any order. The homes will close to the tour at 9 p.m. An elegant buffet dinner will be served at The Farm from 5:30 until 8:30 p.m. Tickets may be purchased for the home tour only or the tour and buffet.  

The event’s theme, “Peace on Earth begins at home,” is a reflection of the center’s mission. The center’s purpose is to end violence in the home by providing shelter, advocacy and support to victims while working in communities to change attitudes, beliefs and behaviors. The center provides emergency shelter for domestic violence victims and their children. The center also provides advocacy and client support services through offices in Dalton, Calhoun and Chatsworth. The center serves Gordon, Murray and Whitfield County residents.

The holiday event is a major fundraising effort for the center. Tickets for the tour only are $35; $60 tickets include the home tour and the buffet dinner. Reservations may be made by calling (706) 278-6595.

  • Chester Clark III: A magnificent disappointment

    Could this really be happening?
    Three-and-a-half years earlier their hearts had stirred when they first heard his call. Centuries of Greek and Roman brutality had deepened their desire for the promised Deliverer. Their desires for temporal deliverance had colored even their reading of the Scriptures, until they had convinced themselves that the Messiah’s primary mission would be to deliver them from Rome.

  • The Rev. G. David Henderson: Satan’s worldwide anti-Christ religion — now in our midst!

    Since my devotional last month, many claiming to be followers of Jesus have written the Forum of this newspaper, wrongfully proclaiming God doesn’t require followers of Jesus to obey the moral laws God gave to Moses and Israel — reputably known as the Ten Commandments. The author of our Bible (the Holy Spirit) responds with divine disgust and anger, “such isn’t so” (“God forbid” — Romans 6:15)!

  • Chester V. Clark IIIThe miracle of life

    \With spring in the air and the dogwoods starting to bud, my reflections turn again to the miracle that we call life. Call me simple, easily impressed or perennially forgetful; but isn’t it amazing that dormant plants and trees can come to life again after the bitter cold of winter?
