Tickets will also be available at the Delta Theta Tau booth at the Arts and Craft Fair (Nov. 4-5 at the Putnam County Fairgrounds) along with cheese balls, homemade turtles, and raffle tickets for decorated holiday wreaths (to be given away at the end of the Home Tour).

There is limited parking at the Institute but you may park at the 911/emergency dispatch center on County Road 225 South before reaching Prindle. Delta Theta Tau and Rural Transit will provide free shuttle service from there to the institute and also from the lower parking area inside the Nature Park up to the building's entrance.
Guided tours of the award-winning Prindle facility will be offered and you may relax in the beautiful, natural setting and enjoy complimentary cookies, punch and coffee. The holiday wreaths will be on display and raffle tickets will be available (you need not be present to win) along with homemade turtles.
Interested persons may take advantage of discounts offered by several Greencastle merchants and restaurants by presenting your Home Tour ticket at time of purchase (see back of ticket for complete listing). All discounts are valid the day of the Home Tour and many are valid beyond that date.
Proceeds from the Holiday Home Tour are used exclusively to support the Delta Theta Tau Scholarship Fund and philanthropy donations to Putnam County programs such as the Summer Enrichment Program, Johnson-Nichols Health Clinic, the Giving Tree, Mary Allison Children's Trust and the Reality Store.
