The Tour of Homes was held Thursday and Friday last week, and many people were in town to see the four homes decorated for Christmas.
Patsy Sadler says that for the 5oth anniversary of the Tour of Homes, they went all out with their decorating. Over the 50 year history of the Tour of Homes, the Pella Garden Club has been able to raise over $300,000 to donate to local groups. Sadler says this year they sold over 2100 tickets. Many of those ticket sales come from out of town, which helps the local economy.
