The special event this year has been moved to Sunday evening, 6:30-8:30 p.m. We will gather for an
evening of fun, food and fellowship at Dunleith - a historical antebellum home in Natchez. Your
breath will be taken away the moment you lay eyes on this magnificent Greek Revival Mansion. Dunleith
is an indelible icon and truly represents all that history encompasses in Natchez. Tours of the home
will be available. Heavy hor'dorves will be served.
Monday evening will be free time on your own. Several establishments around town will be open for your
entertainment - and of course, shopping centers are nearby.
The guest speaker for Monday’s luncheon will be Mr. Clyde Ray Weber, a local humorist. Mr. Weber is a
Clerk of Court in Concordia Parish, LA and very well known in the area.
Please indicate on your registration form if you plan to bring a guest to either the
reception or luncheon and include a $75.00 guest fee.
