Haston's French Country Home

The Transylvania Community Arts Council's Tour of Homes Kick-Off Party, where European architecture, art, antiques, and cuisine blend to create a joyeux noel, will be held. On Friday, Dec. 7, from 5 to 7 p.m. area newcomers Hugh and Mimi Haston will open their 4,000 square foot French Country style home for a holiday party.

The festivities include live music by classical guitarist Naren Schoenacher, food rich in the traditions of old-world Europe by Monica Williams and friends, and an art raffle which includes works by artists Joe Bruneau, Ann
