Semmes Heritage Day is Saturday, April 18, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., and visitors are invited to attend the event at Semmes Heritage Park, 3871 Wulff Road, and "time-travel to the early 1900s."
Those who have an old-fashioned art, skill or talent to demonstrate or display or who want to participate in another way, should contact Jeanette Byrd at 649-1647. There's no charge to show arts and crafts, but approval beforehand is required and donations are gratefully accepted.
This event features free barbecue (thanks to Semmes citizen Kris McNeil), music and entertainment, arts and crafts, a hat contest for men and women and lots of family fun. The Camellia Maids will be on hand to welcome guests to Semmes Heritage Day at the unique Heritage Park, which includes a log cabin, Malone Chapel and the 1902 Semmes schoolhouse.
Semmes Heritage Day, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by Alumni & Friends of Semmes School Inc., the City of Semmes and Mobile County Commissioner Connie Hudson.
