UXBRIDGE: The Trinity Church in Uxbridge is hosting its 47th annual Tour of Homes, house tour, on Saturday, June 3rd.
The tour features seven different special, one of a kind homes, spread out through Uxbridge and its surrounding areas.
“One of the beauties of the tour is, people have the opportunity to drive through some really lovely rural roads and enjoy the early June scenery,” said Corinne Croxall, an organizer of the event.
A few of the homes were built before the 1900s and one of the homes is located at the Uxbridge Museum to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary.
“There are a wide variety of homes, at least three of them are quite old,” Mrs. Croxall said.
The event is not for profit, and all of the funds raised go towards different charities in the community and projects within the Trinity Church. These include North House, Sunrise Pregnancy Centre, and children camps. Some of the funds will also go towards supporting a refugee family and other projects in the community.
The house tour is put on by the United Church Women, at Trinity Church, and has as many as 80 volunteers coming together to make the event possible.
The response from the community has been very positive throughout the years, according to Mrs. Croxall.
“We have had as many as 500 on the tour,” she said.
Tour of Homes tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Tickets can be purchased ahead of the show, at Presents Presents Presents, Pharmasave, and Shoppers Drug Mart in Uxbridge, Lukes Country Store in Port Perry, and the I.D.A Pharmacy in Stouffville.
Tea and Cookies will be available to anyone taking the house tour. The event starts at 12:00 noon and ends at 5:00 p.m.
A couple of the houses are owned by artists, who will have their art featured throughout their house.
