An Artful Christmas House Tour

Thank you to all who joined us on Sunday, December ninth, 2018, for our Holiday tour of homes in our community.

A half-dozen Bethlehem area homes and the Kemmerer Museum in beautiful downtown Historic Bethlehem were artfully decorated for the Christmas season.

Proceeds will allow the Bethlehem Garden Club to continue to support our Projects, helping many nonprofit organizations in the community, and to fund our annual Scholarship Program.

If you or your business wish to be listed as a supporter of any of our community projects, our scholarship fund, or any future events, please email the club at

Special Message from our President to All Committee Members:

My Dear Bethlehem Garden Members,

I hope the owners of homes that so graciously opened special dwellings for our Artful Christmas
House Tour on December 9th are sleeping soundly in their beds tonight knowing that they have
inspired visitors from as far away as Connecticut with their creative Christmas decor.

The Tour was our fundraiser for the year and was very successful. So, thank you to Anne Chaidis,
Rosanne Cilente, Robert and Angelika Cornelius, Kathie Klein, Barbara Tracy (all members of
the Garden Club) and Johanna Rust, whom we wish to have as a member.

Anne, not only had her home on the Tour, but did a splendid job as Chairperson. Her
Committee of Angelika Cornelius, Cathy Bannon, Grayce Ruth, Jacqueline Adams, Liz Lorenz, Martin Romeril, Nancy Caldwell, Ruthann Greishammer and Sharon Smith worked tirelessly, and most importantly, harmoniously to bring this event to it’s successful conclusion.

There are many side stories on how everyone pulled together, even at the last minute, that I know about and I am sure there are dozens more.


Thank you too, for the members of Garden Clubs from District ll/lll, that also drove many miles to
support us.
