The Holiday House Tour is made possible through the support of presenting sponsor Lois Schneider Realtor, which continues the lessons and vision that Lois Schneider started over 35 years ago.  Lois not only passed on her extensive real estate knowledge, but she taught the value of giving back to the community through hard work, dedication and philanthropy to community causes.  Lois believed that the heart of a town lies in the generosity and involvement of those who live and work there, and Lois Schneider Realtor, now under the direction of Karen Schneider, Lois's daughter, will continue to be an active part of this community.  “Lois Schneider Realtor  has been a consistent and enthusiastic supporter of Reeves-Reed Arboretum since its founding in1974”, states Frank Juliano, Executive Director, “ and we are pleased to be celebrating this 20 year partnership with them.”

Reeves-Reed Arboretum is the only public garden and one of the largest green spaces in the City of Summit.  The Arboretum seeks to engage, educate and enrich its visitors so they may become better stewards of nature and the environment. This mission is achieved through the care and utilization of an historic estate and gardens. Reeves-Reed Arboretum is listed on both the National and New Jersey Historic Registries. For more information, visit our website at www.reeves-reedarboretum.org or call  (908) 273-8787.
