Potluck Dinner Under The Oaks

LABELLE, FL. -- Former LaBelle Historical Museum president Addison Austin will install museum officers and one three-year director at the annual potluck dinner to be held at the museum's headquarters at 360 North Bridge Street on Thursday, May 30, starting at 6 o'clock in the evening.

Members and friends of LaBelle Heritage Museum planning on attending are asked to bring an entree or casserole, vegetables, salads, hors d'oevres, or desserts to feed their party and at least four others.  Provisions have been made for extra tables and chairs but do suggest those with folding chairs to bring a few "just in case".

The dinner and installation will be under the oaks at the rear of the building. There will be no formal program other than the installation of officers for the 2013/2014 program year and one three-year director. The officers are Joe Thomas, president; Elinor Jones, vice-president; Ron Zimmerly, treasurer; and, Martha Ratliff, secretary, who will be joined by three-year director Lynda Rider Smith. Returning directors are Irene Doub and Addison Austin. 

President Joe Thomas will highlight some of LHM's accomplishments over the past year and give a glimpse of what they hope to accomplish during the coming year.

Membership application/dues renewal forms will be available for those who have not renewed dues as well as for museum friends wishing to become members as we look forward to the future’s challenges and our opportunities for growth. Your support and participation to preserve the rich history of Hendry County’s pioneer families and make the museum a valued resource of information concerning local culture and history are needed now more than ever.

"I look forward to seeing you here at 360 North Bridge Street this next Thursday evening at 6 o'clock to help us start a new year for LaBelle Heritage Museum," said President Joe Thomas.
