Plans for “A Night to Remember” Coming Together and Ticket Sales Climb

November 17, 2021

New Year’s Eve can be “a night to remember” and the Laurens County Museum is planning one for the books.

With just less than a month to reserve your seats at the exclusive event, details of the evening in downtown Laurens are coming together and it sounds nothing short of amazing.

The New Year’s Eve event will take place at the museum’s new location, the Witherspoon Building, and include a “first look” at the new exhibit hall that will be revealed to the public during the open house on Sunday, January 2, 2022, 2:00-5:00 pm.

Museum volunteers are getting ready to “deck the halls” or more specifically the lobby and storefront windows for the holiday season.  No specific details have been revealed but they will be giving a nod to the city’s “Story Book Christmas” while giving it their own spin.

Robert Sherer, who is known for his fabulous Christmas decorations is heading up the project of decorating the museum for the holidays.  Sherer and his wife, Sherry, used to live on Main Street.   They are long-time residents and they both grew up in Laurens.  Sherry recently retired from LDHS as librarian.  Robert still works with the district as a technology coach. He has won first prize for decorating his house on West Main St at least once.

Several large trees have already been delivered to the museum, so the transformation has begun. Volunteers will be assisting Sherer as he brings the festive flare to the museum. The plan is to be finished by Thanksgiving.

Another important detail for a high-end event is the menu.  Guests attending “a Night to Remember” will not be disappointed in the choices available to them.

The menu will include:

  • A Variety of Appetizers
  • Prime Rib
  • Smoked sliced Turkey & Gravy
  • Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Au Jus
  • Roasted Vegetables
  • Rolls
  • Decadent Dessert Bar

Following this first-class dinner, guests will dance the night away with music provided by DJ Doug Bryson. As the evening progresses to the midnight hour, guests will be invited to enjoy a champagne bar on the first floor.  Stepping outside, guests will have a great view of the City of Laurens laser light show on the square while they ring in the new year.

“Things ae really coming together for this special evening, ,” said Teresa Noble, Event Coordinator for the LCMA Magnolia Room.  “This will truly be an exquisite evening in downtown Laurens.”
