Dinner and Conversation with Thomas Paine
Saturday Evening, June 13
5:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Enjoy a four-course 18th century meal with Thomas Paine, finely portrayed by an actor from the American Historical Theatre. Author of the pamphlet Common Sense, Paine challenged the authority of the British government and the royal monarchy. The plain language that Paine used was the first work to openly ask for independence from Great Britain. Impressed with the publication, General Washington had it read to all his troops. Join us in toasting this unsung hero. Candlelight dinner in our 18th century Dutch barn, prepared by Bridgecreek Catering. Period music by Julie and James Paradies.
Silent and live auctions. Cocktails on the riverside lawn. $150 per person.
Prepaid reservations by May 22.
