ARCANUM—Robin Hicks and Kim Morrison, owners of “The Olde Porch” in Arcanum, invite the community to attend an Arcanum Holiday Tour of Homes on Dec. 2, 2-5 p.m.

Proceeds from this tour will benefit the Grace Resurrection Community Center in Greenville. The Center provides lunch four times a week and also operates a food and clothing bank. Robin and Kim, along with members from their church, prepare meals once a month and also help with the food bank.

“We love the people who come to Grace and we thought this would be a great way to give back to our community,” said Kim. “We are grateful to each of our friends who have opened their homes for this Christmas Tour.”

Homes to be visited include the Dolan Home, 208 S. Sycamore St. This small home, nestled on a back street in Arcanum, was built in 1893 and will be filled with sweet, simple holiday touches.

The Lavy Residence, 6152 Hollansburg Arcanum Rd., is a ranch style home featuring family heirlooms and rooms full of Christmas Cheer. During the tour, be sure to check out Santa’s Workshop – set up at the Lavy home!

The Brindsneader Farm, 4923 Hollansburg Arcanum Rd., is home to three little boys ready for Christmas. Every room in this brick home, built in the 1800s, will be filled with primitive holiday decorating, Christmas trees throughout the home, and special attention made to the spiral staircase.

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at The Ivy League, 517 S. Broadway in Greenville; and the following Arcanum locations: The Olde Porch, 3372 Alt. St. Rt. 49, Serendipity Salon, 17 W. George St., and Farmer Brown Restaurant, 6663 Hollansburg/Sampson Rd. Tickets can also be purchased at each home the day of the tour.

For more information, contact Robin Hicks, 937-654-3616, or Kim Morrison, 937-417-9851.

The fireplace is ready for stockings to be hung at the Brinksneader Farm. 
A trio of trees is just one feature of the Lavy Residence that will have attendees dreaming of an old fashioned Christmas. 

Christmas decorations in the Dolan Home will reflect a sweet, simple time. 

The Olde Porch is also ready for the holidays, with hours of Thursdays, noon to 5 p.m.; Fridays, noon to 7 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
