41 Years of Tradition
It is hard to believe that this is the 41st Home Tour in Lockeland Springs. We have seen changes in form and format over that time, but the underlying theme of making connections between neighbors has remained the same. This year a new crop of homeowners stepped up to help us make memories with neighbors and raise funds for neighborhood projects. They are warm and welcoming and can’t wait to meet you. One old tradition that we are bringing back is a home that is “in process”. Teri and Christine Moore moved into 1804 Russell Street last summer and are making plans to renovate. They have already spruced things up and changed things around, but there is much more to come. This is your chance to see the “before” version. Teri owns T. Moore Home, and you can also follow her design process on Instagram if you don’t want to wait until a later tour to see the “after”. We always have neighborhood businesses as home partners, and this year is no exception. We will have tasty treats from a variety of places, but we are also excited to welcome Warner Arts Magnet as a home partner. The visual art students’ work will be on display at 1804 Russell. We are also pleased that the principal, Dr. Ricki Gibbs, will be helping out at Urban Cowboy during ticket sales. Be sure and introduce yourself when you see him. A brand-new tradition this year is our school supply drive for Warner, the zoned school for Lockeland Springs. We are asking you to bring some basics for the second semester: tissues (lots and lots of tissues), Clorox Wipes, tape, crayons. We will have boxes for donations at Urban Cowboy and The Church at Lockeland Springs. If you would prefer that we pick them up, let us know, and we’ll be there. I already have several donations from the early birds. As always, we are grateful to our presenting sponsor, Robert Drimmer, Realtor® with Compass. Not only has he supported us financially, but Robert has also introduced us to some of the people on the tour. Plus, our homeowners and volunteers were treated to a lovely party at his home prior to the tour. Thank you, Robert Drimmer! I have loved organizing the tour for years, but it is truly a team effort. This year we welcomed Anna Katherine Hollingsworth to the committee, and she has done a stellar job telling you about the families who live in each home and taking photos. Our historic expert, Jenny Warren, researched each property, and our website guru, Kevin Wisniewski, put it all on the internet for you to find. Jenny and Kevin also recruited our supporting sponsors. Nathan Oliver, our fearless leader, put together this newsletter and created the ticket. Jodi Hays facilitated the poster and the entire board has worked to identify homes and get us to this grand finale. So, enjoy the tour, meet your neighbors, eat some great food, see some lovely art from our neighborhood school, and know that you are helping us help others by buying a ticket. We appreciate you. Sincerely, Elizabeth Smith and Mary Kathryn Oliver, Home Tour Co-Chairs
