  • 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.
