It’s time to celebrate the holidays and we kicked off the season in style. The annual holiday party was held December 10 at the home Karen and Mark Hoerrner of 194 Fairmount Avenue. They recently finished a major renovation restoring their home to its past splendor - inside and out.
Using archival photos, the Hoerrners meticulously captured every detail of the original home and enhanced it with modern updates and amenities. Built in 1921, it is eclectic in style with a strong Prairie School influence. Prairie School is a truly American concept, where buildings echo the wide, flat expanses of the mid-West plains and are intended to meet basic needs without being too showy. This fine example is built of buff bricks with a green tiled hipped roof and broad overhanging eaves creating a strong horizontal presence intended to blend into the landscape.
This vintage home was the perfect venue for members to enjoy delicious food and libations while mingling with old friends and new. An eight foot Christmas tree was the centerpiece of the decorations and added to the festive atmosphere.
This annual tradition is a way to thank members for their support during the year. A special thank you to the Hoerrners for hosting the holiday celebration.
