17th Cal Heights Home & Garden Tour was a success!
Save the Date! October 6, 2019!
By Karen Highberger
CHNA is excited to be working on the 2019 Home & Garden Tour! The tour is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, October 6th. As a reminder and to those who are new to Cal Heights, the Home & Garden Tour is our major fundraiser. Proceeds from the tour pay for The Heights newsletter (delivered to 1600 homes 6 times a year), Cal Heights
Re-leaf, our Clean Streets program, and various community events. Revenue from past tours helped pay for the restoration of our vintage lampposts and the murals at the Cal Heights Market and the building that houses Orange Avenue Salvage.
In addition to providing funds for our neighborhood, the event is a great way to meet neighbors and make new friends. It is a wonderful community-building event and is fully staffed by upwards of 100 volunteers. If you are not interested in opening your home or garden for the tour, we would love to have you volunteer to be a docent, help at check-in, or help promote the tour to your family and friends.
The tour started in 1997 as a way to promote our Historic District and the restoration of our homes. As always, there will be vendors and tradespeople in the area of restoration available at every home to answer your questions and promote their businesses. Homes that have been on past tours are great examples of loving restoration of period homes and the interiors and gardens provide inspiration to tour attendees.
As always, we are in search of homes and gardens to be on the tour. We have had some homeowners express interest in having their homes on the tour and the selection committee will be scheduling visits in the near future. If you or any of your friends or neighbors are interested in opening your home for the tour, please let us know by emailing email@example.com. October will be here before we know it, so if you can help with the tour in any capacity, please contact us. Thanks so much for your support of our major event!
