A big event for us at the AHCNA is coming up in March, March 20 to be exact. We will be having our major fundraiser, Paint Your Palate. Tickets are on sale now!!! Stop by our gift shop to pick up your tickets. This year’s event will be at the Palmetto Terrace aka fourth floor of the Municipal Building. This is always a fun night especially with the opportunity to bid on both silent and live auction items.
We will also be having Historic North Augusta trolley tours every first Sunday of the month. We’ve had full trolleys for each of the tours so far. Its a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Stay turned for other events on the Sundays that we are open!!! Go to our Events or Tours page to find out more information.
