  • Homes are needed for the Geneseo Alliance of Ladies (GALS) 2013 Tour of Homes.
    A regular holiday feature in Geneseo, the Tour of Homes is GALS sole fund-raiser.
    "The money goes toward our scholarship program which helps women receive education they need to either advance in their job or gives them skills for a new job," said Lynn Timmerman, Tour of Homes chairman
    GALS members have been hosting the Tour of Homes since the early 1980s.
    The 2013 tour will be from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 15.
    The planning committee would like to have five or more homes featured on
    the tour.
    "We have three homes so far, but we still need more," said Timmerman. "All types of homes are welcome."
    Volunteers are posted throughout each home during the tour and visitors wear protective shoe coverings while in the homes.
    Although many of the homes on past tours have been decorated for the holidays, that isn't a requirement.
    "Some people attend to get ideas on how to decorate a home (for Christmas), others like to see the architecture of the house," said Timmerman
    "(The Tour of Homes) is a fun thing to do as a group," she said.
    For additional information on the GALS Tour of Homes, or to volunteer a house for the tour, contact Timmerman at 441-5415 or 441-5415, Catherine Rothschild at 944-9410 or Linda Gillett at (309) 269-7992.
