Grouseland Foundation to Host Annual Dinner, April 5, 2011

Grouseland Foundation will host its Annual Dinner to benefit the ongoing preservation and education mission of the William Henry Harrison Mansion “Grouseland” in Vincennes, IN.

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 grouseland@sbcglobal.net. Credit card payments can be made over the phone or through PayPal at http://www.grouseland.org (“Donate” tab).  If using PayPal, please notify Grouseland that the purchase is intended for dinner tickets.
