The Washington on the Brazos State Park Association will host its annual Sundown Social on Saturday, April 30, from 6pm to 10pm at The Citadel. The Citadel, formerly a club during the 1920s era of The Great Gatsby, is located at 3401 US Highway 290 East in Brenham.
All proceeds from the evening benefit the Washington on the Brazos State Park Association and its education programming, events and maintenance at the expansive 293-acre park grounds of the Washington on the Brazos State Historic Site. The site where 59 delegates bravely met in 1836 to make a formal declaration of independence from Mexico, this is truly “Where Texas Became Texas.” Association Board Members Suzette Moser and Seneca McAdams are co-chairs of the event.
The evening includes dinner, drinks, an auction, and raffle. Live music will be provided by recording artist and Texas native Michael Martin Murphey, who happens to be the author of New Mexico’s state ballad “The Land of Enchantment.” The country Western singer is a multiple Grammy nominee and has been actively recording since 1964.
Individual tickets are $125 each and should be purchased by April 23 by contacting Ginger Moreland, Association Administrator, at (979) 830-1824 or email@example.com.
