A wonderful time was had by all at Museum of the Big Bend’s 1st Annual Heritage Dinner.  Slated as an annual fall fundraiser event for the museum, each year an individual or family will be honored at the Heritage Dinner for their commitment to the cultural, history and preservation for the Big Bend region and the museum.  Over 100 people attended the inaugural event this year on September 20th.  The following photos captured just some of the folks at both the Heritage Dinner and our weekend opening exhibit, “MARFA FLIGHTS: Aerial Views of Big Bend Country – Photos by Paul V. Chaplo.”
