Dinner and Conversation with Meriwether Lewis and William Clark

Saturday, June 1, 2024
4:30 pm – 9:00pm

This year's Annual Dinner features Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, co-commanders of the Corps of Discovery and explorers of the Louisiana Purchase and the Pacific Northwest, as portrayed by finely skilled actors from the American Historical Theatre.

Lewis and Clark will regale our guests with stories of calm bravery in the face of danger, determination in the face of overwhelming odds, and good, old-fashioned adventure from the adventures of the Corps of Discovery. The interplay between the distinct personalities of the Captains made them a leadership team unsurpassed in American history.

Enjoy cocktails on the riverside lawn, a four-course, historically themed dinner served in our 18th century Dutch barn, live and silent auctions.

$185 per person; proceeds support Mount Gulian's education programs. Prepaid reservations by May 9.
