Major Fund Raiser for Support of Area Museum

Each winter the Versailles Area Museum solicits support from the Community through its annual Historic Dinner. On February 6th at the Versailles K. of C. Hall this year’s event will be held and we are counting once again on the generous support of the community to assist us in raising funds for the museum and the many programs offered.

In past years our dinners were more formal and provide history through the food and conversation of the evening. This year we will be presenting a slightly different evening. We will be in a “speak easy” in rural Darke County in 1928. The music was jazz and the beverage of choice was illegal. These hidden away spots were welcoming to all the “regulars” who knew the password to get through the door. No one knew if the county Sherriff might drop in and arrest any one of the customers gathered.

For your donation of $50.00 (or $45.00 if you are a museum member) you will enjoy a wonderful homemade appetizer table. This will be followed by a delicious catered dinner of the period, served at tables of eight which will allow guests to visit as well as be part of the fun atmosphere in our recreated Roadhouse. We will also offer a well stocked bar of the period to cater to your beverage needs for an additional charge. Dessert of course will be part of your dinner along with coffee or tea.

We encourage you to come dressed in the style of the 1920’s, but all are welcome regardless! Call your friends, get a table together but don’t let this opportunity for a fun evening pass you by.

The VAHS thanks are friends at Towne & Country Players, another longtime Versailles area organization for their generous help in this year’s dinner.

A reminder that the Versailles Area Historical Society (museum) is a 501c3 tax deductable charity.

Please order your tickets TODAY by contacting the museum at 937-526-4222. If no one answers leave a message and we will get back to you. All tickets are presale only. Don’t miss out on another wonderful piece of local history and a chance to support a most worthwhile cause. We look forward to welcoming you and thank-you for your continuing support!
