Civil War Days in Franklin, TN

The Heritage Foundation is again heading up the covered dish dinner for 400 Civil War re-enactors. We need help making casseroles in advance and serving at the event:

5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The Factory at Franklin – The Factory Marketplace (Farmer’s Market site)

The Civil War re-enactors are both local citizens and others that travel a great distance to participate in Franklin’s Civil War days which will be at The Park at Harlinsdale Farm on October 14-15. We want to make all the re-enactors feel very welcome and appreciated, and that is where our wonderful Heritage Foundation members come in.
