Ring in the holiday season on Saturday, Dec. 1, with a home tour from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. .

Friends of Meals on Wheels presents Dickens in the Valley, a tour of six Woodland homes dressed in holiday splendor. This event is a fundraiser for Meals on Wheels in Yolo County, a meal program for senior citizens.

Meals on Wheels, administered by the Elderly Nutrition Program, is a nonprofit program that provides a daily nutritious meal for senior citizens. According to Nicki McCabe, executive director of the Elderly Nutrition Program, last year, 82,000 meals were served throughout the county. Many seniors enjoyed the noontime meal at their local senior center, but nearly two-thirds of the meals were delivered by volunteers to frail, homebound elderly recipients.

This year’s home tour will showcase homes decorated in a variety of themes. They include: Alan and Michelle Mitchell’s home at 528 College St., Jenni Miller’s home at 527 College St., Christian and Stacy DeMarais’ home at 709 Meadowood Drive, John and Maggie Smythe’s home at 132 Bartlett Ave., Madeline Bunfill and Steve Buchanan’s home at 617 Cross St. and Sally Forment’s home at 905 Greenwood Drive.

New this year will be a silent auction for two decorated holiday trees that will be on display at BlackPine Holdings Inc. Denise and George Lewis, owners of Mengali’s Florist at West and Main streets, and Mike and Karen Mueck, owners of K&M Floral,  537 Main St., are donating the trees. The proceeds will benefit the Yolo County Meals on Wheels Program. The final bid must be received before 3 p.m.

Tickets for the Holiday Home Tour are $20, available at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in downtown Davis, and at Corner Drug, The Gifted Penguin and Terry’s Hallmark in Woodland. Tickets also may be purchased online at dickensinthevalley.eventbrite.com and at the Elderly Nutrition Office, 40 N. East St., Suite C, in Woodland.

On the day of the tour, tickets will be $25 and may be purchased at the tour headquarters/hospitality center at BlackPine Holdings Inc., 630 Lincoln Ave., where hot beverages and treats will be available as well.

For more information call 530-662-7035.
