HOLIDAY ISLAND -- For the third year in a row, the Holiday Island Rotary Club will sponsor its annual Holiday Tour of Homes in Holiday Island and the surrounding area.

The event will take place Saturday, Dec. 15, from noon to 4 p.m.

This year's tour will feature six homes, four of them in Holiday Island proper, and two off Hwy. 23 North. In Holiday Island, the homes featured will be those of Harold and Ann Craig at 307 Holiday Island Drive, David and Brenda Hirsch at 2 Quail Run Drive, Bob Hilmer at 19 Lakeside Drive and Roger and Davina Lockhart at 55 Lakeside Drive. Off Hwy. 23 North, the homes of Jim and Kathy Marquette of 551 CR 230 and Tony and Mary Popovac at 771 CR 230 will be featured.

A flyer with a map showing the location of each home will be given to each person purchasing a ticket.

The homes may be toured in any order during the open hours.

Proceeds from the tour will go to benefit the Flint Street Food Pantry and the Salvation Army.

"This year our goal is to sell 100 tickets," said Rotary Club member Mavis Lehr. "Last year we raised $1,500, and the year before that, $2,000."

Tickets are $15 if pre-purchased or $20 at the first home the day of the tour.

Tickets may be pre-purchased in Holiday Island at Island Airco at 14A Woodsdale Drive; Dr. Terry Bushay, DDS, at 1 Park Drive, Suite D; and Cornerstone Bank at 1 Parkwood Drive. They may also be purchased in Berryville at Wells Fargo Advisors at 910 West Trimble, Suite 1; and in Eureka Springs at Arvest Bank at 151 West Van Buren.
