The dinner will be held in the Green Activities Center on the campus of Vincennes University (Harrison St.) at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, April 5, 2011. The featured speaker will be Mr. Kevin Myers, local historian and American Studies instructor at Vincennes Lincoln High School. The program will also include a special announcement about Grouseland’s new heritage education initiative, “First Families.”
First Families is a program designed to 1) identify and recognize descendants of William Henry Harrison, veterans of the Battle of Tippecanoe, and families who lived in Vincennes/Knox Co. prior to statehood (1816); and 2) to increase awareness of the unique history and heritage that Grouseland and Vincennes represents.
Tickets for the dinner are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. To purchase tickets, call or email Grouseland, (812) 882-2096 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Credit card payments can be made over the phone or through PayPal at http://www.grouseland.org (“Donate” tab).
