Museum Director Schelley Francis Speaks At Lions Club
Special thanks to Schelley Francis for agreeing to fill in at the last minute today for our scheduled speaker, who was under the weather.
Schelley spoke to Lions about the mission of the Dorcheat Historical Association Museum, as well as future dreams and the challenges it’s faced over the past year and a half. She said the museum exists to help keep our rich parish history alive, and it will take continued monetary donations and volunteer help to do so. Schelley has served as the museum’s director since 2007.
The museum is currently open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. with a lunch closure from 1-2 p.m., and by appointment. Guided and group tours are currently on hold due to COVID-19. There is no cost for admission.
The museum also includes a gift shop area featuring books by local authors, postcards, prints, DVDs of past “Night at the Museum” presentations, and more.
