Putnam County Museum Plans To Hold Annual Membership Dinner

The Putnam County Museum will hold its annual membership dinner meeting and summer gala in the DePauw Memorial Union building on Saturday, August 4 from 4 - 7 p.m.

The event’s theme will be a “Toast to Both” — honoring DePauw’s 175th year and the Museum’s 11th in Putnam County.

“Our celebration will look back on where and how we started, where we have been—with a special remembrance of our dedicated volunteer, benefactor, and friend, Judge Sally H. Gray—and where we hope to be in the future,” says Patty McCastle, co-chair for the event. “We look forward to sharing fond memories of our past and our aspirations for the future.”

Keynote speakers will be Jinsie Bingham, museum board member and city councilwoman, and Steve Setchell, major gifts officer in DePauw’s development office.

The Gala will include a silent auction featuring craft and artwork with Putnam County connections.

“We hope everyone in the community will feel welcome to join in this special celebration toasting DePauw University and the Putnam County Museum’s achievements,” says Sarallen Peters, event co-chair.

Admission to the Gala is open only to Museum members.
