The Association for the Preservation of Historic Natchitoches will kick off 2017 with its Annual APHN Luncheon. It’s a wonderful way for the community to show its support for ongoing and upcoming preservation efforts alongside APHN team members, volunteers, and people who care about preserving the rich history of the Cane River area.
The luncheon will be held at Mariner’s Restaurant Saturday, Feb. 11 at 11:30 a.m. Tom Whitehead, the guest presenter, will be available after the luncheon to sign copies of his books, “Clementine Hunter: The African House Murals,” and the Hunter biography, “Clementine Hunter: Her Life and Art.” Tickets are $28 per person and include lunch, a dessert buffet, as well as presentations and updates from the APHN.
The APHN has another exciting year ahead in restoring and preserving Melrose Plantation, and its historic outbuildings. To accomplish this goal, financial support is needed.
These properties help generate tourism to Natchitoches, benefiting the entire community.
Tickets can be purchased online at Melrose Plantation’s gift shop at http://www.melroseplantation.org/shop/.
