The Home Selection Committee is busy visiting prospective homes, consulting with the Transportation and Safety Committee to be sure the locations are such that we can safely transport visitors, and determining bus schedules and ticket times that will make the tour run smoothly. Details and photos of the beautiful homes on this year’s tour will be announced in a few months and available on the tour website.

Four unique residences in the 2013 Tour of Homes
By Alice Eachus
Photos by Lassie Dye
What makes a home truly our own? Maybe a private dance floor or a collection of quilts warming the walls. Perhaps a screened porch with a bird’s eye view of treetops, or maybe a massing of wooden furniture lovingly designed and crafted by the man of the house.
For the past 25 years, the Tour of Homes has invited the community to take a peek into many interesting, beautiful and unique homes nestled in our little corner of the world. The 2013 Tour was no exception.
The Silver Anniversary Tour of Homes sponsored by the Big Canoe Chapel Women’s Guild celebrated a Legacy of Caring that has over the years raised more than a million dollars to benefit charities in Dawson and Pickens counties.
Tour buses wound around the beautiful neighborhoods to allow guessts to hop onboard and enjoy visiting four delightfully different homes. Sue Hauseman, Tom and Linda Petrigliano, Erwin and Dorian Dillard and Wayne and Eileen Bruce opened their front doors to welcome all into their private worlds.
The upcoming Silver Anniversary Tour of Homes is sponsored by the Big Canoe Chapel Women’s Guild and over the years has raised more than a million dollars to benefit charities in Dawson and Pickens counties.
Tour buses will wind around our mountains on May 3-4. Hop onboard and enjoy visiting four delightfully different homes. Sue Hauseman, Tom and Linda Petrigliano, Erwin and Dorian Dillard and Wayne and Eileen Bruce are opening their front doors to welcome all into their private worlds.
|Home of Sue Hauseman.|
Home of Sue Hauseman — A quilter’s paradise
Sue Hauseman knew she wanted to call our mountains home 15 years ago when she bought the perfect lot for her dream home, which she built eight years later. As so many before her, once Sue crossed the covered bridge, she knew she finally found her special place in the hills. With family nearby in Atlanta, Big Canoe was the perfect setting for her retirement hearth.
Sue loves to entertain friends and family so an open spacious floor plan was a must. Cooking is a favorite pastime, and Sue’s large kitchen invites guests to join her while she concocts delectable dinner dishes. Sue’s dogs are her pride and joy and share her rustic home.
Oh, Sue’s beautiful quilts! Not only does Sue have golden fingers to design and create her own whimsical coverlets, she also collects antique quilts and displays them in their splendor throughout her home. Fabric art adds a welcoming feel to this mountain home, especially the large, impressive rooster quilt hand-pieced by Pennsylvania Mennonites. This handmade quilt makes a genuine statement hanging proudly in the stairwell.
|Home of Tom and Linda Petrigliano.|
Home of Tom and Linda Petrigliano — Bird’s eye view captures the soul
Linda and Tom Petrigliano first heard of Big Canoe in the late ‘80s when few homes dotted the landscape. It wasn’t until 2003 that they purchased a lot, then a vacation home and, finally, a permanent residence on Sconti Knoll. Their home features craftsman-style architecture and the Petriglianos particularly enjoy their open, expansive floor plan, perfect for casual entertaining.
Before moving in, extensive renovation and remodeling took place, including the installation of a fireplace in their screened porch. Many hours and family meals are enjoyed on the porch, perched high in the foliage like an inviting tree house.
Scattered throughout the home is a wonderful collection of Nippon china, including platters, plates, figurines and vases. Tom and Linda have been collecting this delicate Chinese porcelain for many years, and each piece has a story to tell. The Petriglianos also enjoy searching for treasures to add to their numerous vintage-inspired collections.
Their daughter Stacey commandeers the lower level of the Petrigliano home. Stacey’s cozy “home-within-a-home” features a kitchenette, fireplace and plenty of room for relaxation.
|Home of Erwin and Dorian Dillard.|
Home of Erwin and Dorian Dillard — A home to celebrate dancing
“We love to dance, so we built our very own dance floor!” Erwin and Dorian Dillard whirl and twirl on their expansive dance floor every chance they get, when they’re not enjoying one of the most spectacular views in Big Canoe.
The panorama faces south into Big Canoe and gives excellent views of the lakes, Big Canoe Chapel, Sconti Clubhouse and the surrounding mountains. On a clear day, Stone Mountain, Kennesaw Mountain and the Atlanta skyline can be enjoyed.
Dorian, a Big Canoe resident for 17 years, is an artist, and her oil works are displayed throughout the house, carrying vibrant color to every corner. Of particular note is the expressively detailed oil portrait of her daughters Dorian lovingly painted. She is also an interior designer and her creative touches accent and showcase the couple’s vibrant personalities.
Dorian and Erwin married in 2006, and both love to work around the house. Erwin, a man handy with tools, did all the plumbing and electrical work when the home’s basement was finished. That was a labor of love!
|Home of Wayne and Eileen Bruce.|
Home of Wayne and Eileen Bruce — An architectural wonder
Wayne and Eileen Bruce turned a simple ranch-style Big Canoe home into an architectural showplace. Entering the original house, visitors are soon swept into a majestic addition, beautifully integrated to create a home that flows easily and comfortably. A massive chandelier in the great room teases the eye upward to high-reaching beams.
Wayne is a home builder by profession, but he is also a furniture craftsman. Of particular note is the massive dining room table, which was intricately hand-carved by this talented homeowner. While carving wood is his specialty, Wayne also knows how to fashion simple steel pipes into functional furnishings using curves and twists to add interest and dimension to the design.
Coming from the Lone Star State, Wayne and Eileen have subtle touches of Texas throughout their home. Elements of the West fit beautifully into mountain living, and Wayne and Eileen introduced their many life experiences into an attractive home they enjoy to the fullest.
Each of the four homes tour-goers will visit in May has a friendly, welcoming sense about it. Each carries its owner’s sense of style and flair in a distinctive way. We thank our homeowners for sharing their private retreats with us. We wouldn’t have a Tour of Homes without you!
|Let the Shopping Begin!|
Mark your calendars for May 2 and 3 when, once again, the Tour of Homes Marketplace comes to Big Canoe! Here you will see the Broyles Center transformed into a bustling array of vendors and artists offering jewelry, clothing, artwork, furniture, bakery goods — and so much more!
Even if you are not going to visit the homes on the tour, plan to enjoy seeing all the Marketplace has to offer. It's a time for some serious shopping if you're looking for unique, hand-crafted pieces of artwork, jewelry, and home accessories. There is no charge to browse around the many treasures to be found at the Marketplace. Shop before or after your home tour on Friday, May 2, from 9 AM until 5 PM and on Saturday, May 3, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
In addition to the vendors, the Marketplace hosts the Bear Paw Bakery, the Crazy Bear Cafe, Collectors' Corner, and the ever-popular Book Nook. On Saturday, there will even be a Vintage Car Show. Read on for more about the treats and treasures to be found at these Marketplace attractions.
Bake, Buy, or Both! - Bear Paw Bakery Beckons
Our own, “Bearfoot Contessa,” will be at the back of the Broyles Center to welcome you to the Bear Paw Bakery and to the 2014 Tour of Homes. The bakery has the sweetest opportunities for you to help support area charities!
First, you can bake something to share: cakes, cupcakes, cookies, coffee cakes, pies, sweet rolls, brownies and bars. This year we are adding some salty/savory snacks such as roasted nuts, trail mix, and party mix, as well as diabetic friendly and gluten free baked goods. Don’t forget our four-legged friends. Dog and cat treats are also welcomed. You can bake it now and put it in your freezer or bake it just before the Tour of Homes and bring it to the Broyles Center between 10 AM and 4 PM on Thursday, May 1, or on Friday morning, May 2. All goods should be labeled. Because of food allergies, please be sure to indicate on the label if your items contain nuts. Bakery volunteers will package your goods for sale and price your items.
You can also volunteer your time. The Bear Paw Bakery needs workers Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 1–3. To volunteer, please contact Brenda Bedingfield (706-268-2047) or June Lewis (706-268-1856).
The sweetest thing you can do is purchase a treat! If you have a special cake or pie that you love, you will be able to order it early this year to assure that you have that perfect dessert. Bear Paw Bakery will be open on Friday, May 2, from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and on Saturday, May 3, from 8:30 until sold out.
Crazy Bear Café - A legacy of Great Grillin' by our Guys
All that shopping and touring sure brings on an appetite! So, count on the Crazy Bear Café to offer sustenance all day, rain or shine. Just follow your nose to the grills near the bell tower and the seating on the patio next to the Broyles Center for breakfast, lunch, or a quick snack and beverage.
Start the day with an Early Bird Special of coffee and sausage and egg biscuits. At lunch get your hamburger, hot dog, or chicken sandwich hot off the grill with all the trimmings and make it a combo with chips and a cold drink. For your mid-morning or afternoon snack, there will be plenty of thirst-quenching cold beverages to go with a sweet snack from the near-by Bear Paw Bakery.
Returning café chair and grill master, Eberhard Noll, and his team of master grill chefs, look forward to serving you during both days of the Tour. They will have the café open, rain or shine, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Friday and from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday, as long as supplies last.
Volunteers are always welcomed to join in the fun of cooking on the big grill and then serving up the results. It is pretty much understood that the guys are in charge here! Call or email Eberhard Noll (706-268-1908) firstname.lastname@example.org
Book shelves overflowing?? Media cabinet full?? WE CAN HELP!
Beginning in September, donate all of those extra books, DVDs, and books on CDs to the Book Nook by placing them in collection boxes located in the postal facility and the fitness center. Then restock your shelves by visiting the Book Nook on May 2 and 3.
At this favorite shopping spot for book lovers, you can fill shopping bags with best selling hardback or paperback fiction and nonfiction books, pick up a few DVD's for the grandkids, and even get books on CDs for the next road trip—all at unbelievable prices. Hardback books and trade paperbacks are just each, regular paperback books are 166 and books on CDs are . Fiction is arranged by author and other books are arranged by subject, so finding the perfect volume is easy. All proceeds from book sales are donated to local charities.
Be sure to plan your Tour activities to include a visit to the Book Nook in the lower level of the Broyles Center on Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.and on Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Saturday remember to shop early before you tour the homes if you have a late afternoon ticket.
Call Glenda Molton at 706-268-1595 with questions or to volunteer to be a helper.
Collectors' Corner - A legacy of fabulous finds
An array of treasures pulled from homes all over Big Canoe awaits you at the Collectors' Corner located on the lower level of the Broyles Center. The Collectors' Corner offers a glorious selection of gently used home accessories, furnishings, linens, china, silver, glassware and antiques. Again this year, the Corner will have a women’s accessories area to include jewelry, handbags, scarves, hats and gloves.
This is a great place to find unique items at very reasonable prices. Hardly a garage sale, the standard used in accepting items is, "Would you give this as a wedding gift?"
Bring cash or checks (no credit cards) to make your purchases from 9 a.m.to 5 p.m. on Friday and from 9 a,m. to 4 p.m.on Saturday. Remember to shop early before you tour on Saturday afternoon if your tickets are for the last time slot.
If you have items to donate or need further information, please call Verna Rauschenberg 706-579-2249 or Diane LaCharite-Warner at 706-268-1252.
Welcome to the 2014 Marketplace Vendors
The Broyles Center, adjacent parking lot, and patio will be transformed into a bustling marketplace with an amazing array of vendors and artists offering jewelry, clothing, artwork, gift items, food and more. The Marketplace also hosts the Bear Paw Bakery, the Crazy Bear Café and the always popular Book Nook and Collectors’ Corner.
This is a great opportunity to support local businesses without leaving the gates of Big Canoe and to see a diverse group of artists from Big Canoe and around the Southeast. You’ll find perennial favorites as well as many new vendors this year.
Vendors at the Marketplace will be open on Friday, May 2, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., and on Saturday, May 3, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. For that quick cup of coffee and a breakfast treat, you can stop by the Crazy Bear Cafe at 8 a.m. on both Friday and Saturday. Wait just a bit and then even more home-made goodies are available at Bear Paw Bakery when it opens at 8:30 a.m.
With so many wonderful vendors and artists to choose from, it will be hard to decide where to begin…and when to stop. And remember, it’s never too early to shop for Christmas or the next anniversary and birthday. Since every purchase helps support charities in Pickens and Dawson counties, come early, stay late, and be there both days!
For information about joining our list of vendors for 2014, please contact Melissa Lowrie at 706-268-1478 or email@example.com

Welcome to the 2014 Tour of Homes

Co-Chair, Big Canoe Tour of Homes
Friday, May 2, and Saturday, May 3, 2014, will mark the 26th consecutive year Big Canoe residents have opened their homes to neighbors and visitors as part of the Big Canoe Tour of Homes.
Why do we do this year after year?
It’s the testimony given by a 70 year old recipient of a GED with financial support from READ (Reading Education Association of Dawson County) or the knowledge that the St. Vincent de Paul Society’s Family Uplift Program is enabling adults to attend college and improve their employment prospects. It’s the smiles on the faces of Head Start children enjoying the Craddock Center’s music and storytelling programs or the story of a 4H student whose family circumstances prevented him from keeping and showing a pig. Yes, the Guild purchased a pig with Tour of Homes money. The student cared for the pig, was able to participate, grow in confidence and win a prize. The Big Canoe Women’s Guild was named “Volunteer Organization of the Year” by the Pickens County 4 H group, but that was only possible because Big Canoe residents supported the Tour of Homes.
Opportunities to volunteer
The Tour of Homes is hosted by the Chapel Women’s Guild as part of its mission to promote activities that benefit the surrounding areas. But with over two dozen committees working on the various aspects of the tour, there are opportunities for all residents of Big Canoe to volunteer. This year’s co-chairs, Cheryl Gregory, firstname.lastname@example.org and Jean Lomax, JL2770@tds.net will be hosting a kick-off meeting for the Tour in the Broyles Center of the Chapel on Thursday, September 19, at 10 a.m. Please join us or send us an email if you are interesting in helping with any of the committee work this fall.
|Volunteers gather in the Broyles Center at a recent Tour of Homes informational meeting. Photo by Lassie Dye|
There are opportunities to work with the ad sales team, which produces the Tour Booklet, and with the team looking for auction items in preparation for the Gala Event on April 26. The beauty of these positions is that you can set your own schedule, volunteer with a friend and make new friends.
Two of the Marketplace committees are up and running. Cathy Smith and Glenda Molton have signed up again to co-chair the Book Nook as have Collectors’ Corner co-chairs, Verna Rauschenberg and Diane LeCharite. Please keep Cathy, Glenda, Verna and Diane in mind during your pre-holiday season closet cleaning. They will be very grateful for any books or collectables that you are able to donate. The book collection boxes will return to the postal facility and fitness center this month.
Direct donations can also be made to the Tour of Homes. Gifts in memory or in honor of a loved one through "Angels in the Woods" are credited to the Tour of Homes account and go directly to charitable organizations in Pickens and Dawson counties.
Please see the Tour page on the Chapel website or search bigcanoetour.org for details.
Legacy of Caring - 2014 Theme
Jean and Cheryl have adopted the purple iris flower introduced last year as their logo for 2014. The iris takes its name from the Greek word for rainbow. Over the next several months, they will share stories and updates about the tour. You will be reminded of the dates, when and how to purchase tickets and how to volunteer as tour hostesses and to fill the Broyles Center kitchen with home baked goods, but for now, please consider joining one of the planning committees. Help us bring a rainbow of happiness to our neighbors in Pickens and Dawson counties as we continue the Legacy of Caring which symbolizes Big Canoe.

|Co-chairs Cheryl Gregory and Jean Lomax|
Twenty-five years may have quickly slipped away since the first Big Canoe Tour of Homes in 1989, but the benevolence work that began with the ,700 given to charities in Dawson and Pickens counties that year has grown to 0,000 raised last year and to a total of 166, 228,000. In each of those twenty-five years, the specific needs met by the dollars distributed have made a meaningful difference in many individual lives. Since its inception and with the support of thousands of volunteers, the tour has continued and established a “Legacy of Caring.”
This year the Big Canoe Tour of Homes will celebrate its 26th year of caring and sharing and will continue to use as its logo the iris, symbol of promise, faith, hope and trust. On April 26, a Gala Event featuring cocktails, dinner, and live and silent auctions will kick off Tour of Homes week. The Tour weekend, May 2-3, will feature visits to beautiful homes nestled in our mountains and shopping at the Tour of Homes Marketplace located in and around the Big Canoe Chapel.
As a community, Big Canoe supports the Big Canoe Chapel Women’s Guild as they raise funds to assist dozens of charities in Dawson and Pickens counties. The Tour of Homes’ influence extends far beyond our gates. Guests from miles away visit Big Canoe for this special weekend in May, responding to our expansive promotional efforts. We encourage your support as a sponsor, donor, vendor or advertiser, and we cordially welcome you to attend the 26th annual Big Canoe Tour of Homes.
