Please make plans to join us for these exciting events!
We have made arrangements for a small block of rooms (see details below) with the Hotel Vue Natchez, which is hosting the event. The hotel said that they expect to sell out of their rooms that weekend, so please book early because it looks like it will be a busy weekend in Natchez.
