Camellia Maids Kaitlyn Read, Briley Kearns and Lydia Smith will greet visitors at Semmes Heritage Festival
Semmes Heritage Day--a time to celebrate the unique history of the community--is Saturday, April 18, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Sponsored by Alumni & Friends of Semmes School, Inc., the celebration is held at Semmes Heritage Park, 3871 Wulff Road, and features music and entertainment, arts and crafts displays, free barbecue and demonstrations and exhibits from the early 1900s. The free-admission event is a day of family fun, including children's games and hat contests for men and women.
The three lovely Semmes Camellia Maids--Kaitlyn Read, Briley Kearns and Lydia Smith--will be on hand to welcome visitors, and those attendees can view and enjoy the three buildings on the premises, the 1902, one-room schoolhouse; Malone Chapel, a replica of the first church in Semmes; and a new addition--a turn-of-the-century log cabin.
