Keeping History Alive Draws Crowd

The 2013 Keeping History Alive Banquet is behind us and once again drew an excellent crowd.  Over a hundred people attended and enjoyed an entertaining presentation by Ted Jones about Louisiana's colorful politics.  Senator David Pryor introduced Mr. Jones.  The 2013 Abbott Award for Historic Preservation was presented to Mrs. Martha Yocum for her work in preserving the Yocum/Rushing House on Madison Avenue in El Dorado. 

The SAHF would like to thank the host couples, Diane & Edwin Alderson, the Conference Center, Senator Pryor and Ted Jones for making this special night a success.
