Dove, Inc. is honored to have been selected to carry on the traditions of the Annual Heritage & Holly Tour. NWRAPS, Near Westside Restoration and Preservation Society, has hosted this event for 26 years. The annual tour focuses on architectural treasures, local history and Decatur community restoration. When looking for an organization to be the event’s future sponsor, NWRAPS approached their neighbor, Dove, Inc. Dove, Inc. Governing Board President, Rev. Jason Butterick, states, “It’s a good fit, focusing on restoring area homes and families inside and out.” Dove, Inc. plans to continue the event as an annual fundraiser to support local programs.
The Heritage & Holly Tour will continue to bring area history to light and feature area historic homes and businesses. The Trolley will be available to transport visitors to sites on the tour. New this year will be a bit of the rich history of Dove and its programs. Donna Williams, who has organized the tour for more than a decade, and other NWRAPS members will continue to consult and volunteer through the transition.
