Holiday home open
to visitors again

Once again, Gladys Fleming will open her home in Olive Branch to visitors who want to come see the elaborately decorated holiday home.
Open house will be Saturday and Sunday from 5 to 8 p.m. and Dec. 16 from 1 to 5 p.m.
Every room, every shelf, every wall, every door, every floor, every inch of the 6,400-square-foot house is decorated from top to bottom with everything Christmas.
Fleming’s husband, Dave, died recently, but she still decided to go all out this year.
“Even though I lost Dave, I didn’t want to sit around doing nothing,” she said. “I wanted to share at least one more year.”
The home is located at 8384 Dunleith Cove in Olive Branch. A $5 donation is requested and all proceeds go to First Baptist Church in Olive Branch.
For more information, call (662) 895-9595.
