17th Annual P.E.O. Holiday Home Tour

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas — especially in the four homes and the Battlement Historic School that are all on the Annual Christmas Home Tour sponsored by P.E.O. Chapter IP in Battlement Mesa-Parachute. This is a yearly event in which the proceeds are used to raise money for the Chapter’s scholarship fund. P.E.O. is an international organization that not only helps graduating students but also women who are in need of extra funds to return to school. The homes chosen for this year’s tour are very unique and beautiful. They include a Spanish Adobe Mission home located beside the Colorado River. This home was owner-designed and built in 1999 and includes an open center courtyard and stained glass windows. The second is a wonderful home with a southwest feel filled with many years of collected southwest treasures. A lovely collection of cross-stitch and crewel embroidery pieces and quilts are being shared at the third home with an extra showing of vintage jukeboxes. The remaining home demonstrates the blend of traditional and modern styles with a glass atrium that is a focal piece of the house This home also includes its own pond and resident macaw. Coffee, tea, hot cider and cookies will be served at the Battlement Historic School. Tickets are $12.00 with more information available by calling 970-285-5627. Tickets may be purchased from P.E.O. Chapter IP members. Plan to attend this Annual Holiday Home Tour on Saturday, Dec. 6, 2014, at 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Enjoy the warm welcome at each of the Tour sites for this very worthwhile community event. Plan now to attend!
