Been a Catholic my whole life and sadly this is the norm, Many Catholics listen to the teaching of the church but do not hear them or do not believe in them. The Franciscans are a great down to earth bunch of guys, but they do not help in these matters. I have heard a lot of pro life talk come from St Francis on Sundays, then in the next breath you have this guy invited in, I don't get it.

" If they have a R behind the name that is all the typical low level Republican voter cares." (You see what I did there?) That first paragraph is kind of comical considering all the crap I have been getting because I want to vote Libertarian this time around instead of following the R.

Which statement are you referring to? In general your right, but if the alcohol tax is raised in this state. The Wal Marts of this town can absorb some of that, maybe all of it for a little while. Where Winking Market has to pass that on.

New Private Home Tours a la carte

The Quincy Area Convention & Visitors Bureau announces the tours in conjunction with the established Private Home Tours program

The Quincy Area Convention & Visitors Bureau announces the launch of Private Home Tours a la carte, in conjunction with the established Private Home Tours program, which allows private homes to be available for group tours year-round. The program began three years ago and has brought 1,165 people from 48 groups to Quincy from 8 states and 2 countries.  The new a la carte program will showcase three homes twice a week at 1461 Maine, 1677 Maine and 1843 Grove for Saturday and Monday tours from November to January.

"The new a la carte program will now allow leisure visitors to experience what typically has only been offered to group tours with advance notice. Now during the winter months when several of our great museums are closed, these tours will be available several days a week on an individual basis. It's another example of the generosity and hospitality of the people of Quincy to open up their homes to the public," said Lori Tuttle, PR and Marketing Manager of the Bureau.

New a la carte tours will be available from 10am-3pm on Saturdays and Mondays at 1677 Maine. Tours at 1461 Maine will be given at 9am on Saturdays and from 10am-3pm on Mondays. Similar tours will be given at 1843 Grove on Saturdays at 1pm. All tours allow any size group to enjoy a custom tour for $5.00 per person per home.  Tickets will be available at the Quincy Area Convention & Visitors Bureau at 532 Gardner Expressway.

Local preservationist Fran Cook developed the Private Home Tour program with the Bureau and said, "We are pleased to showcase the interior designs of several of our architectural treasures in Quincy, with hopes of attracting new visitors to our city."

Private Home Tours a la carte will continue through January 26, 2013.  For more information or to schedule a tour in advance, contact the Quincy Area Convention & Visitors Bureau at 217-214-3700 or 1-800-978-4748.
