AAHS’ Heritage Dinner to return next month

Two years after the Apalachicola Area Historical Society’s annual Heritage Dinner fell victim to COVID-19, it is coming back next month.

Dale Cox, a renowned Panhandle historian and author, will be the featured speaker at the catered event, slated for Saturday, Sept. 17 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Holy Family Senior Center, 203 Dr. Frederick S. Humphries St, Apalachicola.

Cox, author of more than a dozen books on Southern history and culture, will speak on the Florida Territorial Period, 1821-1845. His many award-winning works include the acclaimed “The Fort at Prospect Bluff,” “The Battle of Marianna, Florida,” “The Battle of Natural Bridge, Florida,” and “Milly Francis: The Life & Times of the Creek Pocahontas,” considered a heroine in the early days of Fort Gadsden.

The Heritage Dinner, a long-standing fall tradition in Apalachicola, was formerly an Apalachicola library event. Now hosted by the Apalachicola Area Historical Society, the fun evening will feature a sumptuous meal catered by Brett Gormley, with net proceeds going to benefit the work of the society.

Tickets are limited and are available for sale in person at the Raney House Museum or the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce office. Tickets are $60 each or two tickets for $100.

Discounts are also available for current AAHS members. Deadline to purchase tickets is Monday, Sept. 12. 

For reservations or more information, please call and leave a message at (850) 653-1700, email to AAHS.Raney@gmail.com, or online at aahs.wildapricot.org/events.  The Raney House Museum, at 128 Market Street at the corner of Avenue F in downtown. Apalachicola, is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. To offer to help the night of the event, contact Caty Greene at 850-323-2305 or catygreene32320@gmail.com.
