  1. Popular home/neighborhood tour today — don’t delay in picking up your brochure ticket starting 10 a.m. at Himmel Park library parking lot (west of the library), as tickets are selling quickly online. Weather promises to be sunny for the Spring.

    UPDATE: Hundreds of people on this tour again, visiting 11 eclectic homes, from 1928 vintage one (looks like a jail from outside) to super renovated ones, to classic SW styles. The UA President’s home at 2141 E. 3rd St. was on the tour for the first time. I biked, walked, drove thru the tour after I got a flat tire on the bike, had to then walk home, and later drove the car to the farther homes.
