The 2012 Tour of Homes committee and the Prismatic Sensations would like to take this opportunity to offer a huge thanks to the owners of the five homes for agreeing to be on this year’s Tour fundraiser. The committee asks the cooperation of tour-goers to be respectful and grateful to the homeowners for opening up their homes for this event.
