The Annual Calvary House Tour Carries On

Committee Chairs Loretta Smith and Nina Deutz and Tour Publicist Irene Towt step up on the beautiful center staircase of this inspired north side colonial. Great outdoor views and lovely "transitional" décor make this residence a standout. One of five residential gems on the 38th Calvary House Tour, it will be showcased in the community on Thursday, May 6th.

The "Women of Calvary" is an organization representing Calvary Episcopal Church in Summit, NJ. Our mission is dedicated to encouraging fellowship and opportunities and to strengthen our commitment to people in need within our parish, our community, and our world.

The Calvary House Tour-now in its 38th year-is looking forward to another success story. The annual Tour allows us to continue financing our outreach efforts to those who are in need in our community and surrounding areas. It is an event that is worth noting on your May calendar.

This year's event will take place on Thursday, May 6th from 10:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. It provides an opportunity to view five distinctive homes that showcase great style, design trends, and fine taste in some of our community's loveliest residences. Originally conceived as the Maytime Festival of Homes-and currently known as the Calvary House Tour-the 38th annual event promise interesting decorative ideas, colorful surprises, and lots of style and creativity that offer inspiration for budding self decorators.

The proceeds from the event will support outreach efforts through Calvary Episcopal Church. Recipients that have received support from the House Tour include:

. Apostles House and its associated Food Bank, which provides comprehensive social services to homeless and at-risk families in Newark

. Pathways at The Connection offers women living with cancer support, information, and wellness programs. HomeFirst is an interfaith initiative that provides housing and family services to the homeless of Union County

. St. Philip's Academy of Newark is an independent primary and middle school serving children in the Newark area.

. The Good Shepherd Home of Cameroon, Africa provides care and shelter for children orphaned by AIDS.

Tour advance tickets are $35 by mail through April 24th. Please make your check payable to "Women of Calvary" and enclose a stamped, self-addressed business size envelope.

Gourmet box lunches are $15 per person by advance order only. (Lunches may be picked up at the Calvary Parish Hall.) Send your ticket request to Susan McCallum, 100 Prospect Street, Summit, NJ. Tickets the day of the event are $40 (available either at the Church Parish Hall or tour homes.)
