2011 SPNA Home Tour

The Sylvan Park Neighborhood Association will hold its 2011 Home Tour on Saturday, September 10, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The tour will feature several neighborhood homes in a range of styles and a few of Sylvan Park’s signature civic and religious buildings. Refreshments, crafts and artisan treats will all be on sale.

Tour tickets are available now for $12 per person or for $15 the day of the event. Tickets may be purchased at McCabe Community Center, Sylvan Park School and St. Ann's Church. Please see below for additional ways to support the tour.
SPNA Home Tour Patrons 
This year the tour will be supported financially by tour patrons, so that all tour revenues will go directly to support SPNA. Donations generated by the tour fund neighborhood events such as SPNA’s Fourth of July parade, neighborhood socials and holiday party and neighborhood projects such as clean-ups and tree plantings. Tour funds also support organizations and events including McCabe Park Little League, the Sylvan Park School Parent-Teacher Organization, the Richland Creek Run and Greenways for Nashville.

Interested residents and other friends of SPNA are invited to become patrons of the tour for $100. In exchange for their generosity, patrons receive two tour tickets and recognition in the tour booklet. Patrons will also be invited to attend a special patron’s party celebrating the tour.

SPNA Home Tour Advertising

This year’s full-color tour booklet will provide excellent opportunities to reach Sylvan Park residents, tour guests and interested parties across West Nashville. In past years more than 1,500 people have participated in the tour.

Ad placements are available for the 5.5 X 8 inch booklet in the following sizes: a quarter-page ad for $100, a half-page ad for $175, and a full page ad for $250. Graphic design services are available for $50 as well. Email Margaret Holleman at margaretholleman@yahoo.com to reserve space in the booklet.

Volunteers Needed

We also need volunteers! We need docents to assist each house host in managing the flow of visitors, we need ticket sellers (the two Saturdays before the Tour and the day of), and we need party planners and organizers for the tour after-party.  If none of these jobs appeal to you, but you’d still like to help, we can still use your help. Email Margaret Holleman at the address listed above if you would like to assist in any capacity.
Many thanks to the 2011 SPNA Home Tour committee members: Margaret Holleman, Susan Rodgers, Yvonne Eaves, Blake Shelide, Monika Whittenburg, and Tracy Kane. Mark your calendars for the tour, and stay tuned for more news soon.
