Preceptor Beta Kappa wishes to thank the many people who helped with Homes on Parade held December 7th. First of all, our homeowners who so generously opened their homes to the public: Jim and Lee Priestley, Rick and Geneva Farr, Sally Brands and John Savage, John and Tanya Doose, Chris and Melanie Coffelt, Norma and Jay Miller, and Al and Renae Stump. Your homes were beautiful, and I know it took you weeks to get them decorated.

Next we want to thank those retailers who sold tickets for us and provided items for our drawing: The Country Florist, Mary’s Wondrous Things, Karylett’s Country Store, The Whimsical Wagon, An Exquisite Design, Country Rose Boutique, Midland Arts Company and Candy Bouquet. Your help and donations were heaven-sent, and were so appreciated. What beautiful work is done by our area retailers.

Thank you to Alpine Bank of Rifle for paying for the printing of our booklets. You helped us earn more money. With your generosity, we can give our profits back to those in the community who need it.

Mike McKibbin of the Rifle Citizen Telegram, you did a beautiful article the week of the home tour. Thank you so much. Also, thanks to Bonnie at the Telegram and to Kay at the Glenwood Springs Post Independent for the notices you put in the newspaper. Channel 13 ran our notice as well, and we thank you for that.

You can thank Keith of City Market for the beautiful green and red balloons which made our homes more visible.

Thanks also to the Lovell Building next the United Methodist Presbyterian Church for allowing us to use the building December 7th to hand out the booklets and sell tickets.

This tour has been a lot of work for many people. We plan on doing another one next year, and we even have some promises of homes lined up. Thank you, Rifle and surrounding communities, for attending and making our tour a success.
