SEE DETAILS BELOW

 Tie One On

Apron Exhibit

The Dorcheat Museum NEEDS YOUR HELP! We are currently working on a new exhibit featuring APRONS, RECIPES, and PICTURES of some of our great cooks…. past, present and future!

If you have an apron along with a picture to go with it of the owner….. Plus a recipe (HANDWRITTEN IF YOU HAVE IT)….. Please bring them by the museum for us to highlight. This exhibit will run from April 1st, 2022 - October 1st, 2022. It will also be a big part of our SEPTEMBER 12th Fundraiser Gala for 2022! Yes we are back after a long break of gathering for a fun filled exhibit and gala!

This exhibit is for the young and old alike….so if you have a younger child that cooks and they have an apron let’s highlight them along with your family history.

Aprons tie us to the past in more ways than one. The memories of meals shared and recipes handed down through time is what cooking and family is all about. Many times a simple recipe takes us down memory lane or the smell of a pound cake cooking in the oven. Let us share those memories with others and the proud heritage of GOOD COOKS!

What we need:

1. An apron (yours, your grandmothers, aunts, cousins, husbands, dads, all aprons welcome) you can also bring more than one!

2. Two pictures (OLD PICTURES IF YOU HAVE THEM) to go with the apron… one of the cook (Does Not Need To Have Apron On) and one can be a family picture! We will scan them in and give them right back to you!

3. The Recipe (handwritten if possible and we will scan it in and give that right back to you)

4. Short bio of the person that owned or owns the apron

5. If you don’t have an apron that is ok….you can still be included in the cookbook…. a hand written recipe along with a few vintage pictures of the recipe writer will be perfect to add to our cookbook.

You apron will then be on display until October 1st at the museum. You will be able to come by after that date to pick it back up.

This is going to be something fun for people to see….plus we will get some great history recorded in the form of a TIE ONE ON cookbook that we will produce afterward. Call museum for more details 318-377-3002.

 “Tie One On” Dorcheat Museum Fundraiser Gala 2022


Come “Tie One On” with us on Monday September 12, 2022 at Dorcheat Museum located at 116 Pearl Street in Minden, LA.


The Dorcheat Museum will be celebrating 15 years of preserving our history of Webster Parish. Yes we are back after a long break of gathering together! After two years of dealing with Covid shutdowns the museum will finally be able to have a gathering of supporters again.


This year’s gala will be a little different than the ones we have had in the past. We just wanted to have a simple fun evening together again! We will have a live auction conducted by our own “Dr. FEELGOOD” Richard Campbell. Donated cakes will be on the auction block all night long. So come for some fun and bring your sweet tooth and pocket book.


The event will be centered on our “TIE ONE ON” apron exhibit that runs from April – October 1st. Aprons tie us to the past in more ways than one. The memories of meals shared and recipes handed down through time is what cooking and family is all about. Many times a simple recipe takes us down memory lane or the smell of a pound cake cooking in the oven. Let us share those memories with others and the proud heritage of GOOD COOKS!


Cost is $25 per person with response cards and checks to be mailed by September 1st, 2022 or dropped off at museum by Friday September 9, 2022. You can also pay $30 at the door. PLEASE BRING A CAKE, IF YOU CAN! To donate baked items and cakes call 318-377-3002
