Survivors offer Milford tour

Something for everyone at the benefit ‘Behind Closed Doors House Tour’ this Sunday MILFORD - On Sunday Sept. 17, 2006 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., Survivors’ Resources is hosting the eighth annual “Behind Closed Doors House Tour.” The tour has always been successful thanks to its many supporters, but especially thanks to local homeowners who graciously open their beautiful and unique homes to the public. This year we are being treated to a wide range of architecture and design from an enchanting getaway cottage hidden on a private lane to a large, sprawling home whose red tile roof and stuccoed walls is reminiscent of homes found in Provence or Tuscany. Also on display are a charming cottage originally built in 1800, two fine examples of Greek Revival architecture and one of modern design that fits seamlessly into a historic area. Tickets are $25 each and tax deductible. They may be purchased in Milford at Bodies In Balance on U.S. Route 6/209, Nellie’s Naturals in the Old Lumberyard on Seventh Street or Patina Interior Design at 320 Broad Street. Tickets are in the form of a brochure including directions and descriptions of all the homes. Upon arrival at each home you will notice a handmade quilt donated by members of the Milford Valley Quilters Guild. Tickets will also be available on the day of the tour. Starting at 9 a.m., on Sept. 17, you can purchase both the tour brochure and “Dream Day of Design” raffle tickets at the Survivors’ Resources table in front of the Pike County Public Library at the corner of Broad and Harford Streets. Proceeds from the house tour go directly to Survivors’ Resources, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to assisting those of all ages and gender who have suffered from physical, mental, emotional and/or sexual abuse. This group of dedicated trained volunteers provides free counseling services in person as well as on a 24 hour hotline at 570-296-HELP.
