“Night At The Museum”
“Red Turner Stories” presented by Claire Turner Fussell
|Don't Miss It!|
May 9th, 2016, don’t miss this Dorcheat Historical Museum event for 2016! It’s our last museum event before our summer break from speakers. Doors Open at 5:30.
Red Turner has been called a “Salty Saint.” He was that and so much more. He explored Minden as a child, played football for the Crimson Tide, fought in WWII as a Marine, returned home and bought Turner Lumber Company, married and reared a family, and built some of the most beautiful homes in Minden. Red lived in the gentle, relaxed years of Minden. If you were privileged to have lived here during those years, you will enjoy “reliving” the memories. If you weren’t, you will enjoy learning about Minden in the “olden days.” Join us at the Dorcheat Museum for the 59th “Night at the Museum” Monday May 9th, 2016. Hear Red’s stories of Minden from the 1920’s thru the 1970’s, as related by his daughter, Claire Turner Fussell.
Don't miss your chance to hear about some of our local history. The museum events will be held in the Media/Learning room at the Dorcheat Historical Association Museum, 116 Pearl Street, Minden, La. Museum doors will open at 5:30 p.m., with first-come, first-serve seating. Program begins at 6:00 p.m., admission is free with potluck desserts and snacks welcome.
