Mark Thursday, December 8 as a “red letter day” on the calendar – the Legacy League’s Christmas Home Tour is sure to be a highlight of the holiday season! Five fabulous homes, three in Vestavia Hills and two in Mountain Brook, will be showcased during the 12th annual tour. ARC Realty is once again the Presenting Sponsor for the festive community event, which raises scholarship funds for students with significant financial need and challenging circumstances. To date, the tour has raised over $300,000, helping change the lives of students who have endured obstacles including homelessness, inner city violence, the disability or death of a parent or sibling, foster care, parental job loss, abandonment, parental incarceration and the sacrifices of full-time ministry.

Christmas Home Tour Chair Tricia Naro is “grateful for the support of our members and the community and appreciates the excitement they have when visiting these beautifully decorated homes.”  She and her committee are hard at work planning this year’s tour, which will include a few select pop-up shoppes and holiday refreshments at the Samford President’s Home. Guests will select their start time and first home during ticket purchase.

The tour will feature the homes of:

Kathryn & Doug Eckert, 2900 Overhill Road, Mountain Brook
Wansley & Ryan Griffin, 2133 Southwood Road, Vestavia Hills
Bridget & Andrew Patterson, 309 Sunset Drive, Vestavia Hills
Jenny & Scott Sobera, 2824 Canoe Brook Circle, Mountain Brook
Julie & Beck Taylor, Samford President’s Home,1994 Shades Crest Road, Vestavia Hills

The Legacy League is a charitable organization with over 750 members dedicated to making a difference in the lives of students through need-based scholarships. The organization offers meaningful volunteer opportunities, inspirational programs, and a friendly, caring community to all who become involved.

Christmas in the Park is a walkable Christmas Wonderland in Old Mill Square Park from December 2, 2022 to January 3, 2023.  Businesses or Groups will sponsor and decorate a 6 – 7 foot live tree that will remain in the park throughout the Christmas season.  This year all of our trees come from Cedar Creek Nursery.  We appreciate their partnership in providing their beautiful trees.

Each Friday night in December the City of Columbiana will turn Old Mill Square Park into a snowy wonderland with the help of snow machines placed near the fountain.  We are excited to have Christmas in the Park again this year.

Christmas Home Tour Chair Tricia Naro is “grateful for the support of our members and the community and appreciates the excitement they have when visiting these beautifully decorated homes.”  She and her committee are hard at work planning this year’s tour, which will include a few select pop-up shoppes and holiday refreshments at the Samford President’s Home. Guests will select their start time and first home during ticket purchase.

The tour will feature the homes of:

Kathryn & Doug Eckert, 2900 Overhill Road, Mountain Brook

Bridget & Andrew Patterson, 309 Sunset Drive, Vestavia Hills

Christmas in the Park is a walkable Christmas Wonderland in Old Mill Square Park from December 2, 2022 to January 3, 2023.  Businesses or Groups will sponsor and decorate a 6 – 7 foot live tree that will remain in the park throughout the Christmas season.  This year all of our trees come from Cedar Creek Nursery.  We appreciate their partnership in providing their beautiful trees.

Each Friday night in December the City of Columbiana will turn Old Mill Square Park into a snowy wonderland with the help of snow machines placed near the fountain.  We are excited to have Christmas in the Park again this year.
