Holiday Dinner Theater Dec, 13

Sending the email below on behalf of Chamber member Historic Preservation Association of Bourbon County.
Thank you for your Chamber partnership!
HPA in the past has had good success with our Homes for the Holidays Tour, but as of late attendance has dropped due to it being increasingly difficult to secure new houses or at least homes that have not been on the tour 4-5 times. In response to this we have decided to try something new this year.
We are proud to announce our first annual
HPA Holiday Dinner Theater!
HPA has partnered with FSCC Drama and Choir to put on an hour-long program.
This will be on Friday, December 13th beginning at 7pm at Liberty Theatre and will feature entertainment, good food and drinks. Also, a live auction of some historic memorabilia. This will be an exciting event to attend!
As this is our only fundraiser for the year we are trying get sponsors for the program. As a local business we appreciate all you do in this county and would love if you would choose to help us out on the inaugural event. We are offering several levels of sponsorship’s, Platinum $500+ Gold $200+ Silver $100+ Bronze $50+. Your tax-deductible gift will stay local and help maintain our historic presence in Bourbon County and Fort Scott. We love our history and know you all do as well.
Below is a little about what we do and who we are.
Bourbon County HPA:
The Historic Preservation Association of Bourbon County, Inc. is an organization formed by citizens interested in the preservation of historic sites, display records, objects & documents of historical importance to the County of Bourbon, State of Kansas, & the United States of America.
The largest preservation project by HPA has been the purchase of the Congregational Church at 5th & National Ave. The church is the meeting place of HPA, but also is the venue for weddings, musicals, programs, and has been leased for church services.
HPA has been involved in storefront grants, walking tour grants, pocket museums, Homes for the Holidays tours & celebrations, moving the MK&T freight house from the floodplain, stabilizing the roof of the Union Block building, sponsorship of the FSHS Jr. History Club, published/promoted several books on Fort Scott and Bourbon County and helped to sell them, established a Facebook page to promote interest in local history, and in general has tried to instill interest in history that we live around every day! HPA at one time had a museum, finances and logistics now don’t favor that, but we try to display some of our artifacts at the Bourbon County Courthouse and businesses so the public may enjoy them.
Thank you in advance for your consideration!
