We are so honored and proud to be a part of the Booker T. Washington National Monument Grand Opening Event for their new addition to the Visitor Center. The Grand Opening Event is being held at 11am on Wednesday, November 17th, 2010. Our Fun Cupcakes will be present and abundant with a "Farm & Garden" theme that will be too cute to miss, as well as many Fancy Cupcakes in our Seasonal Fall Flavors.
Booker T. Washington National Monument commemorates the birthplace of America's most prominent African American educator and orator of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The property evokes an 1850s middle class tobacco farm, representative of Booker T. Washington's enslaved childhood at the Burroughs farm. He was born in 1856 to the Burroughses' cook, Jane and lived on the farm throughout the Civil War.
To learn more about Booker T. Washington, his life and accomplishments, visit the park! We are so fortunate to have a National Monument & Park located in our backyard!
Open seven days a week, year-round, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Click this link for directions to the park.
Well we did it! 325 Cupcakes delivered and enjoyed by all. We ended up re-creating a part of the park complete with garden and pond, field and farm animals too! I wish I could post some photos but in all the rush and excitement to get there this morning I forgot the camera... (so if you were there and you have some would you please email me a few?)
The Grand Opening event was a huge success and many many people from he community came out to celebrate the new wing of the Visitor's Center. We conversed and mingled and ate and had a great time.
Hello My Sweet would like to thank the Booker T. Washington Friends Group as well as the Park Service staff for allowing us to be a part of your special day. Thank you so much!
