The Roadrunner Chapter is excited to support the Sonora Chapter, in this wonderful annual event.
Join the Sonora Chapter for an annual tradition – a trip to Sierra Vista and Fort Huachuca for the Holiday Homes Tour. Not only will the Post’s senior officers and their families open about a dozen of their homes, decorated for the holidays, to the public, but the Fort Huachuca Museum will be open as well. These homes and the museum are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Members of the Tombstone Vigilantes and Vigilettes, and B Troop, 4th US Cavalry (Memorial) will be there in 1880s costume to add to the festive and historic air.
Roadrunner Chapter members are invited to meet at BMW of Tucson, 855 W. Wetmore Rd.Tucson,AZ85705 at 9:30 am, where you’ll join a Sonora Chapter caravan. The caravan will depart promptly at 10:00 a.m.
You will be lead on a merry and scenic chase via State Routes 83 and 82 through Sonoita and Whetstone before reaching Sierra Vista. You’ll gather for lunch at La Casita Restaurant, 456 E. Fry Blvd. in Sierra Vista at 11:00 am. Look for the one-story cream-and-terra cotta building on the north (left) side of Fry. There will be a caravan from La Casita to the parking area a block from the homes. Maps will be provided.
IMPORTANT: EVERYONE MUST have a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license, in order to get on Post. The homes will be open from 12:00 to 4:00 but you’re free to leave at any time.
You can purchase tickets for $15 on-site or for $12 in advance – (be sure to bring your printed receipt, for proof of payment). The museum is free. The tour will go on rain, snow, or shine. Expect temperatures to be at least 15 degrees cooler than Phoenix because the homes are at 5,000 feet elevation. Please RSVP, below, in order to attend. Space is limited so an early RSVP is vital!
