"Dinner with Destiny: Meet Mr Lincoln" Signature 2014 Fundraiser & Dinner Sponsored by FOSL; $40 Tickets Now on Sale

What if you had the chance to have dinner with America’s 16th President? What would you ask him?

Now’s your chance! Join the Friends of Smyrna Library on Saturday, November 1, at 6:30 p.m. for the first annual “Dinner with Destiny” fundraiser where we will “Meet Mr. Lincoln.”

Professional Abraham Lincoln presenter, Dennis Boggs presents an enlightening and informative look at the life of Lincoln, as it might have been told by Honest Abe himself. The audience will travel from Lincoln's birth in the wilderness of Kentucky to his early years in Indiana and Illinois... from storekeeper to self-taught lawyer and politician... through his years as President during the Civil War and to his death at the hands of an assassin in Ford's Theater.

Dennis Boggs is a fulltime Lincoln presenter from Nashville, Tennessee. His credits include two documentaries for the History Channel, “Being Lincoln” and “Looking for Lincoln.”

Mr. Boggs finds that the most rewarding part of his program is through the question and answer session which immediately follows his presentation.  During this time, President Lincoln is able to address questions about his life, presidency and legacy. 

“Dinner with Destiny” is a fundraiser sponsored by the Friends of Smyrna Library (FOSL) to benefit the children’s print collection at Smyrna Public Library. FOSL’s goal for this fundraiser is to generate $3200 in funds to support the educational pursuits of Smyrna’s youth.

Individual tickets for the dinner and presentation are $40 each. Event sponsorships are also available.

The sesquicentennial observation of the Civil War has brought new interest to this time of American History. Join us for a special evening with the “Great Emancipator” and support the young minds of Smyrna!


$40 each – includes dinner, dessert, presentation, and door prizes
