KHS to Host Food for ThoughtShort Stories of Early Kentucky Furniture (1790s-1820s)FRANKFORT, Ky. (Oct. 3, 2012)
— The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) will host a “Food for Thought” luncheon program, “Short Stories of Early Kentucky Furniture (1790s-1820s)” with guest speaker Mack Cox, at noon Wednesday, Oct. 17, at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History in downtown Frankfort.
Cox loves to share his knowledge and passion for early things — things that have been cherished and passed down through generations; things that have helped bring the history of Kentucky to life. Cox and his wife have been serious collectors of early Kentucky material since 2005 and conduct primary research on early Kentucky furniture. Cox currently serves on the advisory board of the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts in Winston-Salem, N.C.
The menu for the luncheon features cranberry feta pinwheels, fall pear salad with cranberry vinaigrette, broccoli cheddar soup, chicken and wild rice soup, sandwich sampler (white pimento cheese, olive nut or veggie cream cheese), apple cake and iced tea or coffee.
Tickets to the Food for Thought luncheon are $18 for KHS members and $25 for other patrons. To make a reservation, contact Julia Curry at 502-564-1792, ext. 4414. Reservations are required by Friday, Oct. 12.
