You’ll get to tour seven Pottstown area homes dressed up in Christmas finery on the annual Holiday House Tour of the Pottstown Area Garden Club. It’s held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain (or snow) or shine. Tickets cost $12, and are available by e-mailing either House Tour chairman JoAnn Waddell or Linda Davis. Sites on this year’s tour are charming places for visitors, family and the adult children and grandchildren who return for the holidays. They can be visited in any order. Partial proceeds of the tour support the club’s scholarship program. Lunch will be available.
Children can meet and have their photos taken with Santa Claus from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the offices of Zuber Realty, 2117 E. High St., Sanatoga PA. The photos are free, and so are refreshments, a candy cane, and a token gift to be given to each child in attendance.
Story time with Santa will be held from 11 a.m. to noon at the Royersford Free Library, 20 S. Fourth Ave., Royersford PA. Santa plans to stick around until he speaks personally with each child after the story’s finished. For more information, call 610-948-7277.
