With minimal interest shown in the opportunity for a Two Rivers Heritage Foundation mid-afternoon group tour of the Brazos River Exhibit at the Brazos Museum of Natural Science in College Station this coming Tuesday’s ‘history mixer’ is canceled.
Two Rivers Heritage Foundation is looking forward to the following week’s ‘history mixer’ on Tuesday, August 21st that will feature a speaker on Women’s Suffrage.
Denise Bennett, the Texas Daughters of the American Revolution’s State Vice Chairman for Commemorative Events, will be the speaker as the Women’s Suffrage Amendment nears its 100th year ratification for the right of women to vote. The mixer will begin at 5:15. at Lynn’s Rendezvous Room.
Earlier that afternoon the local Robert Raines Chapter of the DAR is holding a dessert social at Lynn’s Rendezvous Room from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. featuring the same speaker on the Women’s Suffrage amendment. Texas was one of the first states to ratify the Constitutional Amendment. The public is welcome to either the afternoon dessert social and/or the Two Rivers ‘mixer.’ There is no cost to those wishing to attend. Lynn’s is located at the corner of Farquhar and McAlpine across from the Navasota Post Office.
Two Rivers Heritage Foundation thanks all the members who have contributed to the Development Fund that has been established for a historic cultural center in Navasota for the preservation of historic documents and artifacts of Navasota, Grimes County and the surrounding Brazos Valley region.
This Capital Campaign, is a move for tax deductible donations to the Two Rivers Heritage Foundation Development Fund from all who would like to participate in the founding of such a history center.
Donations may be made by mailing your contribution to the Two Rivers Heritage Foundation Development Fund at P.O. Box 66, Navasota, TX. Donors will be provided with a donor tax receipt.
