Off to DC

I am off to Washington, DC today. Tomorrow night there will be a grand fundraiser for SoFAB at Acadiana restaurant. Many of our Board members are either participating as chefs or attending. This is going to be such a fun event. I am still half asleep, having gotten up at the crack of dawn to make it to the airport in time for the flight. But I am full of anticipation.

Things are full of promise for the museum right now. We are right on the cusp of an explosion of activity. We have begun to actually plan the museum - its design, the permanent exhibits, and the way that it will operate. We are already making in roads all over the South, meeting people who have collections of artifacts and books, who are interested in supporting us. More people are sending us menus, so that important collection is growing. We are taxiing down the runway, about to take off. And it is very exciting.
