On Saturday, June 22, sixty guests enjoyed a five-course meal served at the General John A. Logan Museum in Murphysboro. The museum celebrates the role of “Egypt” (Southern Illinois) in the Civil War, provides educational and cultural programs, and is a gateway for regional tourism. This gala event was one of the major fundraisers for continuing the museum’s programming in the community. The sold-out dinner was chaired by Betsy Brown and Jo Nast of Carbondale and Sharon Jones of Murphysboro. Sponsors for the event were First Bank & Trust of Murphysboro, Jackson County Abstract, West Frankfort Furniture Dealers, Ozburn Insurance Agency, Dan Nolan of Edward Jones, The Smile Place, Mike Clutts Enterprises, Michael J. McNerney, Silkworm Inc., and Spectrum Graphics. Wine was paired with each course by Barb and Jim Bush of Kite Hill Winery. Gabriella and Maya Benyas provided string music for the dinner which was served by One Hot Cookie.
