‘Music Throughout The Valley’ House Tour Slated December 15
By MAUREN J. SUSA

The  CVHS  is  preparing  for  their  annual

 Christmas  House  Tour  which  will  be  held  on  December  15th.   The  tour

 runs  from  1:00  to  4:00.   At  the  Conyngham  Borough  Building,  a  huge  array  of  holiday  goodies  and  beverages

 will  be  offered  for  you  to  enjoy  with  your  friends  from  1:00  to  5:

00.

David  and  Sandi,  Crabtree  Gardens,  present  their  lovely,  English  accented  Bed  and  Breakfast  Cottage  along

 with  their  trendy  Carriage  House  Artist’s  Studio.  Every  nook  and

 corner  is  decorated  with  greens  and

 things  grown  in  their  ‘Magical  Gardens’.   In  the  Carriage  House  you’ll  find  a  ‘Christmas  Train’,  carrying

 working  elves,  chugging  ‘ round  the  Christmas  tree.

The  children  of  the  Conyngham   Methodist  Church  have  created  a  replica  ‘mini’  church.  They  spent  many

 hours  working  tirelessly  (with  a

 little  help  from  the  grownups)  to  make  their  “Mini  Methodist  Church”,  something  that  you  don’t  want  to  miss.

The  beautiful  Bellizia  house  in  Brookhill

 is  decorated  with  the  charm  of  Christmases  long  ago.  Mary  Ann  and

 Tom  transform  their  fireplace  into  a

 masterpiece  by  adding  their  unique  touch  of  old  world  charm.   Stay  a  little  while  and  reminisce  of  your  childhood.

The  home  of  Jeff  and  Nancy  Lotz  features

 a  blizzard  of  red,  white  and

 silver  decorations.   This  color  scheme  permeates  from  the  little  red  Radio  Flyer  wagon  to  the  angel  at  the  top

 of  the  tree.  Feel  the  celebration  of  love  and  lights  as  you  stroll  around  the

 rooms.

Wait  till  you  see  what  Kathleen  and

 staff  have  done  to  their  building  that  was  once  the  PNC  bank.   The  gift  shop  turns  into  a  winter  wonderland

 with  Kathleen’s  unusual  touches.   And  “yes”,  Virginia  Jane,  the

 valley’s  public  relations  dog,  will  be  on  hand  to  greet  visitors  and  help  with

 crowd  control. The  Bernstein  home  is  decked  out  with

 many  beloved  collections  that  Betty  Ann  and  Dick  have  acquired  along  their  travels.   They  proudly  display

 their  collection  of  Nativities  from  around  the  world.   Santa  will  be

 exhausted  after  filling  the  22  stockings  they  hung  with  care.

Tickets  for  this  event  can  be  purchased  from  any  exhibiter,  Gould’s

 Shur  Save,  Fellin’s  Jewelers,  Kathleen’s  Collectibles,  Diane’s  Salon

 and  the  Conyngham  Borough  building.   Cost  is  $10  in  advance  and  $

12  the  day  of  the  tour.   Hope  to  see  you  there.
