Cookbooks and Art make the perfect Mother’s Day Gift!
Dorcheat Historical Association Museum wants to remind everyone, “Don’t Forget Mother’s Day is May 11th! The museum has the perfect gift and will have a booth set up at the 2008 Spring Art’s Festival. So be sure to pick up your copy of “Taste of Yesterday” cookbook “Recipes from our Past and Present” for that special mother in your life.
“The Spring Art’s Festival is the perfect place to promote the new museum that will be opening this summer” announced museum director, Schelley Brown. The annual art festival held at “The Farm” on Union Street is all about children and being creative. With the help of local artist Larry Milford, the museum is also going to be a work of art as well as telling our parish history. The new museum plans to have many children and adult programs, in the future to teach everyone the importance of our heritage. “Art and history are important in our children’s lives and now our parish will have both very soon!” exclaimed Ms. Brown. “I am very excited in our progress this year and look forward to introducing history in unique and fun ways to our visitors.”
“The March and April “Night for The Museum” talks have been very successful and everyone is looking forward to more of these. The May 12th “Night for the Museum” will have a special railroad theme to be announced soon. If you have missed any of these events all are available on DVD for $10 and will also be on sale at this year’s festival.” stated Brown. Ms. Brown wants to encourage everyone to stop by the Dorcheat Historical Association Museum booth to see pictures and get information about the soon to open facility located at 116 Pearl Street.
