VISALIA – Hungry for some history? The Tulare County Historical Society (TCHS) has an insatiable appetite for preserving local history and they need your help to fuel their research projects by having dinner with them.
TCHS will hold its annual fundraiser on Sunday, Oct. 1 at Mooney Grove Park. Happy Cookers catering from Tulare will be cooking up a delicious tri-tip and chicken dinner just behind the Farm Labor Museum at the park from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Dessert will be some refreshing Haagen-Dazs ice cream.
“This gives you a great opportunity to invite friends and spend a wonderful afternoon enjoying the breezes of autumn, the museum and to tour the grounds,” said Carl Switzer, past president of the historical society.
Entertainment will be provided by the band “Take Cover.” The master of ceremonies will be Amy Shuklian, District 3 supervisor on the Tulare County Board of Supervisors and local comedian.
The Tulare County Historical Society has been an active advocate for county history since 1944. Its mission is to promote interest in the history of Tulare County and preserve the heritage of our area for future generations. The society is a tax-exempt non-profit organization.
