Another Holiday Home Tour is in the books! Chapter AO, PEO has held Holiday Home Tours since 1987 to raise scholarship money for women. Since this is our only fundraiser, we are grateful for those who help make this Concordia tradition possible. Thank you to our generous hosts, Jim & Jeannie Waters, John & Linda Cullley, Bob and Roberta Champlin and the Christian Church, for opening and sharing their homes. Even though the weather was chill, it did create a “winter wonderland” enhancing their beautifully decorated homes.
We also appreciate the Blade-Empire and KNCK for the advertising and coverage they provided for us, as well as the Chamber of Commerce, Tom's Music House, Concordia Banks, and Travel and Tourism for selling tickets and NCK Laundry for providing carpet runners.
All members of AO, PEO and the home tour committee members, Nancy Champlin, Jane Richard, Norine Koester, Susan Kueker, Jill Halstead, Jayme Peterson, Shea McMillan and Chris Fall, thank all of you who visited the holiday homes and helped us in any way. Your contributions will continue to fund women's educational projects and scholarships.
