The first Henderson Welcome Home Tour taking place Easter weekend was a success with visitors from several communities and out of state touring inside local businesses, homes for sale, and homes for show during this self-guided tour.
PERKS was the first stop on the tour featuring updates to the building since it was purchased in 2016 by Janet Miller. After looking at construction and renovation pictures, individuals toured the long-time Henderson restaurant to see how it has been transformed. The space has been updated to accommodate a café in front, small meetings and events in back, and space to bake cakes. Following pastries and coffee at PERKS, participants toured the rest of the properties at their own pace.
