On behalf of the Auburn Preservation League Board (APL), we want to thank you for participating in the 11th Annual Lovelist Village Christmas Tour of Homes and Buildings. Our annual fundraiser requires a lot of time and volunteers to plan and present a weekend full of camaraderie and holiday cheer. We have so much appreciation for the homeowners who are willing to share their beautiful homes with us. We aslo give thanks to our Cider Stop participants for opening their businesses or homes for everyone to stop by for a look or to relax with a cup of cider while on the tour.It is because of the generosity of these home, building , and business owners that we are able to have a tour.
I am happy to announce this year we have five organizations who have partnered with APL to provide volunteers to serve as tour guides within the homes and buildings on the tour. They are: Auburn Beautification Council, Auburn High School Ambassadors, Lee County Master Gardeners, Lee-Scott Academy Ambassadors, and the Women's Club of Auburn. I would like to offer a special thanks to each of these organizations for their willingness to help us as it takes approximately 250 volunteers to run the tour during the entire weekend.
APL is a non-profit organization with a board that meets the first Tuesday of each month at 5:30 pm at the Auburn Chamber of Commerce, 714 East Glenn Ave. All board meetings are open to the public and you are welcome to attend. You can visit the Auburn Preservation League website at www.auburnperservation.com for more information, as well as an application for how you may join.
Lastly, I want to recognize the members of the APL Board for their service to the league and the Loveliest Village Christmas Tour of Homes and Buildings.
