Kathryn Kirk (and two friends, Dee Smith and Marie Madinger -all from Missouri) returned for another visit this week. A soiree was held in her honor on July 22.
A silent auction was included to help raise funds to build a future Praise Chapel on the estate in Kathryn’s honor.
During the party, Kathryn formally presented the Whites with the Civil War-era dining room table and chairs that belonged to the home’s original owners, Dr. John & Caroline Kirk, Kathryn’s great, great grandparents. She also presented the original portraits of Dr. & Mrs. Connor, parents of the wife of Willy Kirk (son of Dr. & Mrs. John & Caroline Kirk).
