The Britton House Board of Governors of the Lincoln County Historical Society will present its Twentieth Annual Roast this year honoring Troy R-III School District Assistant Superintendent Charley Branham.
The event will be presented by friends and family of Branham and will be held at the Woods Fort Club on Saturday, Oct. 28. Social hour will begin at 6 p.m. with the dinner at 7 p.m. The roast will follow dinner.
The evening will recognize the substantial contributions made to the school district and community by Branham. The format of the event will be light-hearted and fun!
All proceeds of the roast will be used for the restoration and upkeep of Britton House. Built in 1832 and one of the longest-standing residences in Lincoln County, Britton House is located on the corner of Boone and Main streets in Troy. In 1996, Mrs. John (Lorene) Creech made possible the purchase of the home by the Lincoln County Historical Society. The preservation and operation of the property and Glenna’s Garden is maintained by the nine-member board in loving memory of Mrs. Creech.
The 2017 corporate sponsor is Peoples Bank & Trust Company.
Individual tickets are $50 or reserved tables of eight are $750 purchased in advance and are available at Flynn Drilling Company and from board members Patsy Creech, John Cottle, Joyce Dowell, Pat Flynn, Alana Fravell, Maggie Harrell, Diane Henrikson, Dana Humphrey or Elaine Luck.
