Hearing an old Indian tale that happens to be true is the focus of the Helen Arts & Heritage annual membership meeting Tuesday.
Guests may partake of a dinner and movie following a brief business meeting at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 11, in the upstairs conference room of the arts center, 25 Chattahoochee Strasse, in downtown Helen. Free parking is in the rear area of the center and at the municipal parking lot near the center on Chattahoochee Strasse.
The movie, “Distant Voices,” is a documentary by local authors, Emory Jones and David Greear, about the Nacoochee Valley Indian Mound. It brings to life the story of the prehistoric burial mound, its builders and the valley that spawned it. Based on the book by Emory Jones, the story recounted by the people who know it best.
The evening’s events will close with a drawing for a lovely gift basket, valued at more than $250. A single entry in the drawing is gained by simply attending; additional raffle tickets may be purchased during the evening. HAHC members are reminded to bring a dish to share.
“Distant Voices” books and DVDs will be available for purchase.
