Due to the gracious hospitality extended by six wonderful homeowners and the wonderful staff of the St. Clement’s Island Museum to more than 300 tour participants, the 18th Annual Health Share of St. Mary’s Holiday Home Tour was a very successful event. The time and attention to detail that created the festive beauty of each home and the museum was enjoyed and appreciated by all.

Appreciation and thanks are also extended to PNC Bank, Cedar Point Federal Credit Union, Community Bank of Tri-County, Apple Basket, Lola Belle Co., Traditions of Loveville, Vintage Source, Printing Press, Anne Marum, Southern Maryland This Is Living Magazine, Susan Craton of The Enterprise, Kevin Thompson’s Corner Kafe, Lucy Barbour and Karen Brooks, and all others who helped with ticket sales and advertising.

For the raffle items donated we thank John and Kaylee Cheseldine for the playhouse; Apple Basket for the Byers’ Choice gingerbread house and Lola Belle Co. for the Spartina tote and accessories.

The generosity and Christmas spirit of all of you who participated in this event helps meet the needs of those in our community who rely on the basic health care and prescription drugs provided through Health Share of St. Mary’s.
