North Augusta Christmas home tour scheduled

It’s been a North Augusta holiday tradition for 34 years, and it’s back Dec. 2 and 3.

The Beta Sigma Phi Sorority’s North Augusta Christmas Tour of Homes will feature six stops.

“Beta Sigma Phi Sorority began this tour in 1988 with a two-fold purpose – to provide a profitable fund raiser for North Augusta High School student scholarships and an enjoyable occasion for the community and out-of-town visitors,” according to Linda Skinner, tour spokesperson. “The tour has been held every year except 2020.”

The homes of Mr. and Mrs. Tony Creed on Railroad Avenue and Mr. and Mrs. Mike Stolarski on Fulton Street in Hammond’s Ferry, Mr. and Mrs. David Del Vecchio  in The River Club and Wendy Rae Johnson in Arlington Heights are on the tour as well as Lookaway Hall and the Arts and Heritage Center of North Augusta.
