Beverly Heritage Center to host Springtime Soiree
Had enough of winter?
The Beverly Heritage Center cordially invites the public to step into spring by
joining us on Saturday, April 1 for a Springtime Soiree. This annual benefit
dinner supports the ongoing preservation efforts and community outreach of the
Beverly Heritage Center.
This year’s menu features grilled beef tenderloin
with springtime-inspired dishes. Shrimp dip and crostini will lead a variety of
appetizers during the reception starting at 4:30pm. Dinner will follow at 6pm. A
spring mix salad with strawberries and almonds will complement the home-made
side dishes of spring green vegetables, glazed carrots, and new potatoes with
home grown leeks. Desserts will include pound cake, mini-cheesecakes, and key
lime squares. The cost of the dinner is $45.
“This event allows us to
continue to do what we do,” explains Darryl DeGripp, executive director of the
Beverly Heritage Center. Both historic preservation and community outreach are
the goals of the organization. “Fundraisers like this support our museum, and
help us offer free events for the public like this July’s Beverly Heritage Days
and Rich Mountain Reenactment.”
Prior to the dinner on April 1, the Rich
Mountain Battlefield Foundation will present a Civil War symposium titled
“Yankees, Rebels, and Rabble-Rousers,” which will profile some of West
Virginia’s most influential commanders of the war. This event at the Beverly
IOOF Hall will feature speakers Rick Wolfe, Hunter Lesser, Scott Patchan, and
Dr. Billy Joe Peyton. Registration for the symposium starts at 12 noon, and the
cost is $30. The combined cost for both the Symposium and Dinner is $70.
hope to build on the momentum of past years to make 2017 our best year yet,”
said DeGripp. “But at the end of the day, we still have to keep the lights on.”
