Antiques II- Christmas Edition |
Once again, we have been invited to visit the home of Dick & Kathy Hummel to take a self-guided annotated tour to examine their extensive collection of antiques, assorted keepsakes and over-the-top Christmas decorations. The collection may be described as diverse, educational and perhaps a bit eccentric. If you missed the spring tour, or just loved their hospitality, join us to get in the holiday spirit. Bring a friend or three and finger food to share. Directions provided to registered participants.
