IODE Christmas House Tours Support Hospice

The Captain Garnet Brackin IODE Christmas House Tours have been sharing the beauty of the season while supporting local causes for the past 13 years. Members of the House Tour Committee recently presented Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation with a cheque for $6,000.

Jodi Maroney, Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation Executive Director – “We are so appreciative to the IODE for their support as well as the support from the participating florists, the featured homeowners and those who attend the tour. This gift will be used towards our ongoing operational expenses not covered by government funding.”

The group are already planning for next year’s tour which will take place on November 17 & 18, 2018. For more information about the tours or to express interest in featuring your home in the tour, visit the IODE Facebook page (

Shown presenting the cheque to Jodi Maroney are Nancy Reissner – Education Officer; Cathy Reaume – Treasurer and Marianne Johnstone – Event Co-Convener.
