Founders Day Dinner – October 19
The annual Founders Day Dinner will be on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at Jozwiak Hall in the St. Vincent DePaul Society Building, on Grand Blvd. This year’s theme will be the 100th anniversary of the two-day visit of William Howard Taft to Monessen. The meal will replicate the one served to the former president. The fundraiser dinner will consist of stuffed chicken, roast beef, scalloped potatoes, mixed vegetables, fruit cocktail and cake. Call the Museum and reserve your tickets today, which are $30 each. Historic dress of the period is encouraged.
