Holiday Tour of Homes in Downtown Jasper benefits ACES

The Appalachian Children’s Emergency Shelter (ACES), provider of temporary and long-term residential placement and care for boys and girls ages 11-18, is pleased to announce its first annual Holiday Tour of Homes in Jasper. Presented by Piedmont Mountainside, this year’s walking tour will take place Sunday, Dec. 2 from 2-7 p.m. and will feature five decorated homes along South Main Street.

“A tour of homes hasn’t happened in Jasper in over 20 years,” said Mary Ghorley, Jasper resident and board treasurer for ACES. Mary and Tim’s historic home was featured on the 1997 tour. “This year, the tour will begin at the new Atlantic Coast Conservancy building, which everyone is excited to see completed,” Ghorley added.

Tickets may be purchased online, from an ACES board member, or from local merchants for $25 (credit/debit card payment will include a $1 convenience fee), or for $30 on the day of the tour. Free shuttle service will be available from the parking lots at First Baptist Church, Jasper United Methodist Church, behind Mountain Education (former Jasper Middle School) and behind Revive Us Again. Parking in public lots downtown will also be available. Food and drinks will be available for purchase at the green space – all proceeds benefit ACES. Individual and business sponsorships are also available.
