Thank you for another great
Historic Home and Garden Tour in 2018!
The 2018 Historic Home and Garden Tour took place June23-24, 2018. The Champaign County Preservation Alliance thanks everyone who made this year’s Historic Home and Garden Tour a success. Champaign County is fortunate to have citizens and businesses willing to support non-profit organizations in the county.
Each year, these tours would not be possible without homeowners graciously having their homes and gardens on the tour, and local churches, museums, and other venues opening their doors both days of the tour.
Thank you to Ethel’s Flower Shop for donating a beautiful, unique floral arrangement for each home on the tour.
Thank you to SVG Motors and White’s Auto Group for providing SUVs for the free shuttle service offered during the tour.
We are grateful for the crafters that set up their wares at several tour homes, and for the many businesses in St. Paris that remained open Saturday and Sunday to help showcase the village to out-of-town visitors.
Thank you to Brenda Cook the Village of St. Paris Mayor, and the village council for displaying the banners for the tour and permitting the use of the old junior high school for the tour welcome center and visitor parking. The group Our Town St. Paris did a fantastic job sprucing up the village prior to the tour.
In addition to contributions from the benefactors, sponsors, and others, we could not have succeeded without our 250 volunteers that covered the eight homes and gardens, and drove the shuttle vehicles during the tour. These volunteers collectively donated approximately 700 volunteer hours during the two-day tour. The Historic Home and Garden Tour Committee relies on many of the same volunteers and we are fortunate they readily volunteer to help with the tours year after year.
