Holiday Home Tour Returns December 9

The Friends of the Rochester Hills Public Library 2018 Holiday Home Tour (HHT) is back in a big way and ready to go on Sunday December 9 from 12 noon- 5:00 p.m.

This year, the showcase of five area homes, done up in high style for the holidays for all to see marks a return to a Sunday-in-December date (previously held in November).

Taking part in this year’s event will be local homebuilder the Moceri Companies. The Moceri home will be in the firm’s burgeoning Oakland Twp. Greystone Manor project; local decorators and stores will bring holiday glitz and glamor to the unit.

The tour’s popular Gift Boutique will be hosted at a very familiar sixth stop, Rochester Hills’ Van Hoosen Museum Dairy Barn. Items for sale include toffee, warm scarves, honey products, plenty of holiday decorations and many more unique items for filling out holiday gift lists.

Cider and donut refreshments will be available at the barn for each person with a HHT ticket. In addition, as one more benefit, Holiday Home Tour-goers will get free admission to the annual model train display in the Van Hoosen Museum Calf Barn.

On the home tour, people will see a wide-array of décor styles and several one-of-a-kind displays put together by the five site hosts. It’s all to help raise funds for the Friends, the Rochester Hills Public Library’s volunteer arm.

Friends President Ron Meegan said, “We are very grateful to the homeowners and Moceri Builders who offered to keep this wonderful event alive for another year. Many local businesses and individuals have donated money to the Holiday Home Tour to help underwrite the cost of the event. The tour presents some truly singular design options and ideas and shouldn’t be missed by anyone who enjoys this time of the year. This has become a signature annual event for the area and we hope everyone will make room on their schedule this year to take in these seasonally decorated residences.”
