Punta Gorda Garden Club
Holly Days Home Tour 2013
“A Tropical Holiday to Remember”
Celebrating 20 years of Home Tours
Our annual Holly Days Home Tour was held the first weekend in December. Our Home Tour supports our scholarship and community projects. Our 2013 Home Tour was well attended and we look forward to providing scholarships and continuing our community projects. . Club members used all natural materials, fresh and dried, to decorate four homes in the Punta Gorda Historic District and the First United Methodist Church for the holidays.
The Club’s Holiday event began in 1992 when the Punta Gorda Days committee invited the Punta Gorda Garden Club to help celebrate Punta Gorda's 100-year anniversary. That year wreaths were made for eight homes. The Club then began to hold the Holly Days Home Tour the following year and has continued to do so on the first weekend of December. In 2004 the tour was not held due to damage to the Historic District from Hurricane Charley. That year the Punta Gorda Garden Club sold poinsettias and invited vendors to sell plants; this supported the scholarship and community projects fund. The Club continues to sell poinsettias during the Home Tour.
On the Projects Page of this website you will find a list of the organizations to which the Club donates. The Club is grateful to the community for the support we receive allowing us to make donations to the community.
