2018 Home Tour Wrapup

Another successful Home Tour is under our belt. This year was so wonderful! The weather was perfect and the neighbors, volunteers, and visitors were out in abundance. We broke last year’s attendance record and raised great money for the neighborhood association. Most importantly, everyone had a great time!

The 12 South Home Tour Committee would like to give a big THANK YOU to our 2018 Home Tour Sponsors! Without your support, we would not have been nearly as successful in raising the funds to support the 12 South Neighborhood. We value and appreciate your support more than you know! Thank you, Thank you!
