A potluck dinner is also planned.

The association’s first 2014 meeting will be at 7 p.m. Jan. 9 in the American Museum of Science and Energy at 300 S. Tulane Ave.

The Oak Ridge Heritage and Preservation Association serves to promote historic preservation and the history of Oak Ridge’s heritage.

Monthly meetings are open to the public and take place in the Midtown Community Center, unless special “field trip” meetings are scheduled.

The association’s mission is to preserve Oak Ridge’s history and its built environment and develop education and cultural resources for the benefit of present and future generations.

Membership is open to all interested individuals.
