Junior Ocieleta Club of Claremore 29th annual Christmas Home Tour scheduled

CLAREMORE — Homes have been selected and plans are underway for the 29th Annual Junior Ocieleta Christmas Home Tour. This community tradition is the main fundraiser each year for the Junior Ocieleta Club.

 Five homes are featured throughout Claremore on this year’s tour. Each year, hundreds of people tour the homes and enjoy shopping with the crafters. 
All proceeds from the tour go back into the community. Some organizations sponsored include: Safenet, The Manger, United Way, Rogers County Youth Shelter, Rogers County School Foundations, Bit-by-Bit, Safenet, CASA and Big Brothers/Big Sisters. Each year, scholarships are provided to Rogers County high school seniors.  Additionally, the club has established the Ocie Mayberry Scholarship Endowment for students at Rogers State University.
This year’s tour will be on Saturday, December 1, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. 
Homes in Claremore to be included on the tour this year are:
• Mike and Arlene Brown, 13825 E 460 Road
Mike and Arlene welcome you to their newly-renovated, split-level home, nestled in the trees on a scenic two and a half acres. The home showcases upper and lower decks that overlook a park like setting with a winding creek running through it.
As you walk to the entrance of the main level you will find an open floor plan with modern and traditional décor.  The kitchen is done in cherry with black and gray granite for a rich warm feeling. Also on the main level, the large master bedroom featuring a fireplace and a private deck provides a cozy and relaxing hideout.
The light and airy sunroom has a panoramic view of the grounds with a patio that puts you at tree level to enjoy the sounds of the weather and wildlife. The lower level features a media/game room with exposed beams, as well as a guestroom and bath.  Garden doors lead out to the deck for outdoor entertaining in this tranquil setting.
