Enjoy fun show to benefit museum

Plans are being made to observe the first anniversary of the construction of the Northeast Louisiana Delta African-American Heritage Musuem.

This beautiful edifice, which is a labor-of-love, sits on approximately 26 acres of land at 1051 Chennault Park Drive in Monroe, La., about 2.5 miles from Pecan Land Mall.

The museum serves 15 parishes in northeast Louisiana, as well as several counties in Mississippi, including Adams County.

Because the responsibility for the museum’s sustenance is self-reliant, the museum board has to solicit assistance from both private and public sectors of the various communities.

We are seeking additional dedicated board members, friends to the museum, sponsors, volunteers and monetary donations, as well as suitable artifacts of any kind and art.

The museum’s operational hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. Special hours for tours, meetings, conferences and celebrations are easily arranged by contacting the following numbers: 318-342-8889, 318-387-2914, 318-235-7090 or 318-235-7091. The museum can also be faxed at 318-342-8881.

One of many more fundraisers will be at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Arcade Theater in Ferriday.

This fundraiser will include a performance by a gospel praise ministry with mimes, puppetry, skits and a drill team.

Additionally, a parade of states will be held as participants inform and entertain attendees of all ages with facts and outdated, ridiculous state laws. Did you know it’s unlawful to whistle on Sunday or for an elephant to drink beer in some states?

The public is invited to attend this beneficial event for $2 per person.

 

Josephine S. Webster is board chairperson of the Northeast Louisiana Delta African-American Heritage Museum.
