     Pam Ruminski, chairperson of the Candlelight Tour, stated, “We are excited to announce the fine selection of historic homes and structures on this year’s tour.  As always, our members, volunteers, decorators, and homeowners are committed to putting on another magical event for everyone.  PEP has been conducting the Candlelight Tour for 23 years now, dating back nearly to the organization’s founding.  The tour is both a gathering together of the members of our community, as well as a rolling-out of the welcome mat for tourists, and all those who want to experience the historic beauty of our city.  Finally, it is also an important opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of historic preservation in La Porte,” Ruminski noted.

     People Engaged in Preservation is a La Porte-based non-profit citizens group dedicated to the preservation of the city’s historic architecture, and promoting the economic development and quality-of-life benefits of historic preservation.
