Holiday house tour on Dec. 8

Preparations are underway for Deck the Halls, a Holiday House Tour, which will feature five distinctly different Belmont homes decorated to celebrate the winter holidays. Hosted by the Belmont Garden Club, the tour will take place Dec. 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sherry Jones and Sue Kelleher, the event’s cochairwomen, promise there will be no shortage of creativity on display, with club members and designers applying their talents to transform entryways and living areas into inspiring holiday settings. Tickets with maps may be purchased the day of the tour at the Belmont Public Library from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Profits from the $35 ticket sales will benefit the community gardens and planting areas cared for by the club, as well as the Marion Wilkins/Marie Gray Scholarship, awarded every year to a Belmont resident pursuing a degree in biology, landscape design, horticulture, environmental studies, forestry, or other closely related fields.
