    We are thrilled to open the doors of four stunning
homes, generously donated by wonderful homeowners
and exquisitely decorated by numerous talented de-
signers. What a delightful way to kick start the festive
holiday season! We invite you to come in out of the
cold, and join us for our annual Tour of Homes this
November 12th-14th.
    Please also don’t miss the opportunity to learn to
make new, and different, appetizers at Liaison College
and put together an outdoor holiday arrangement at Holland Park. “Dine with a Discount” is
back again this year offering savings at fabulous restaurants. It’s ALL part of the 2010 House
Tour Experience.
    We’re sure you’ll find the lovely HOPE ornament a welcome addition to your ornament
collection and hope that you’ll support this JLHB initiative. Donations of non-perishable food
items will definitely be put to good use and appreciated by many.
    Seeing the smiling faces of the thousands of people who attend the Tour each year makes
the months of planning and hard work of our sixteen passionate, dedicated and enthusiastic
House Tour committee members incredibly rewarding. Our sincere thanks go to everyone
who supported, helped and donated their time and talents to make this event a success. To all
the JLHB members, family and friends who help to cover the 400 volunteer shifts throughout
the tour weekend - thank you - we couldn’t do it without YOU.
    We truly hope that you will enjoy our “Labour of Love”, the 2010 Holiday House Tour of
Distinctive Homes, and thank you for supporting the Junior League of Hamilton-Burlington.

   • Grade 5 and 6 Hess St. Elementary School children joined Chef Jason Gibson in The
Hamilton Spectator’s test kitchen for The Junior League’s Kids in the Kitchen. As well as
making a nutritious meal and learning how to re-create it at home with their families, the
importance of a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise was reinforced as the kids practiced
the art of dance with hula-hoops. ‘Brenda’ and ‘Zach’, two of the Junior League of Hamilton
Burlington Kids on the Block puppets, shared their message of “Don't Just Sit There, Do
Something!” at this event.
   • In celebration of the League’s 75th anniversary, a total of $41,770 has been donated to
the Mark Preece Family House. Members continue to be involved in this initiative that will
create a ‘home away from home’ for families of critical care patients being treated in Hamil-
ton area hospitals.
   • 156 new winter coats, in a variety of youth sizes, were distributed in our community in No-
vember 2009. Coats were supplied to the JLHB as a result of our partnership with One Warm Coat,
a not for profit organization that enables other organizations, like ours, to provide coats for free, to
people in need. The new coats were disbursed locally through the Hamilton and Burlington Public
and Catholic School Outreach programs and Burlington’s Compassion Society.
