Upcoming House Tours: A Friendly Reminder
Michele Hart, Vice President of the Eastern Bank in South Boston, says of the Laboure Christmas House Tours, “ … a truly unique event, one that showcases the very best of South Boston … an ideal way to kick off the Holiday Season.”. Sr. Maryadele Robinson, the Director of the Laboure Center on West Broadway, reminisces about the past House Tours as the 25th such event approaches. She believes these Tours sent a message of hospitality and Merry Christmas. She extends “heartfelt gratitude to all of the Chairs, homeowners, decorators, volunteers, benefactors, donors, and Tour-goers, who brought the true spirit of Christmas forward …” since 1991. And newcomers are taking part. Danielle Platzer of South Boston’s popular Neatly Nested Shop (E and West Broadway) has joined in the Laboure Christmas House Tour effort, for instance. You can take part in the Tours this Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon, December 5 or 6. Contact 617-464-2500 or go to ccab.org. See you there.
