RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas –
Some Randolph residents will flip the switch on lights, sounds and decorations of the holiday season during the Randolph Holiday Tour of Homes on Dec. 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4-8 p.m.
Ten homes will be decorated for the walking tour of the Randolph Air Force Base historic circle of homes. The tours can begin at any of the following homes: Gen. and Mrs. Steven Lorenz's home at 1 Main Circle, Maj. Gen. and Mrs. Anthony Przybyslawski's home at 3 North Park, Brig. Gen. and Mrs. Richard Devereaux's home at 4 South Park, and "The Randolph House" at 13 Military Plaza.
The Randolph House across from the officers' club was decorated by Marilyn Looney, wife of former Air Education and Training Command Commander Gen. William Looney. The home is currently owned by the 12th Services Division and used for distinguished guest visits.
"She did a great job decorating the home," said Alan Frosch, Randolph Officers' Spouses' Club advisor, "and people always want to see it. The tour of homes will let them get a peek."
Donations of $10 are appreciated, and all proceeds benefit the Airman and Family Readiness Center. Color-coded maps and refreshments will be handed out to tourists, with information on the homes and their history.
"Last year, more than $2,000 was raised for the 'Friends of the Family Support Center' (the charity that supports the A&FRC)," Mr. Frosch said, "and we're looking to top that."
The two times offered are accommodating to all types of people looking to get out that day, he said. Retirees, the elderly and single parents can come during the day if they're busy or don't want to endure the chill, and those wanting to see lights can come at night.
