Annual T. E. Murdic Scholarship Prom

This event is a fundraiser for our annual educational scholarship fund and where scholarships are awarded to several deserving high school seniors in our community attending college. “Prom Night” is a prom for all ages where many will rekindle awesome memories of past proms. This evening is also an opportunity for those who never attended a prom to do so.

The deadline for scholarship applications is March 1st.

Join us for the Annual Christmas Open House hosted by the African American Heritage Society of Williamson County. This is a wonderful event with a live re-enactment featuring Harvey Chrisman and Carolyn Wall reprising their roles as Harvey McLemore and his granddaughter, Maggie. The self-guided tours offer an opportunity for visitors to explore the McLemore House Museum and learn about its historical significance.
