SATURDAY, MARCH 17, 2018 AT 11:15 A.M.

Historical Jonesboro/Clayton County, Inc. is hosting a historical fashion show luncheon featuring styles from the past. Historic costumers, Kat Nagar and Marie Walker will speak about the costumes they’ve created for theater, dance and reenacting. The costumes range from the Middle Ages through the 1860’s.

Kat Nagar is Director of the Atlanta Historic Dance Company. She started making historic costumes 20 years ago to wear while performing. Researching and recreating costumes and dance is her passion and labor of love. Marie Walker is a history major at the University of Georgia. She is a living historian who has costumed many theatrical productions and also hosts a Living History Event each September at Stately Oaks Plantation.

The lunch will be a special meal paying homage to the beloved Chicken Salad Plate from The Magnolia Room of Rich’s Department Store. We will feature several of Rich’s original recipes. This unique event promises to be a fun and memorable time.

Tickets are $30 and include lunch, dessert and the fashion show. All tickets must be purchased in advance by calling (770) 473-0197 or visiting Juddy’s Country Store at Stately Oaks. The Bethel School House is on the Stately Oaks property at 100 Carriage Lane in Jonesboro, Georgia.
