Dear FACC-GC Members and Friends,

2013 Beaujolais Festival - Nov. 21 - JW Marriott - New Orleans
Mark your calendars for one of the FACC-GC's most anticipated annual events, the Beaujolais Festival, Thursday, Nov. 21, at the JW Marriott in New Orleans. This year's soirée, themed "Black & Gold Beaujolais," will combine two of Louisianians' biggest passions, football and wine. Join us, and revelers worldwide, in celebrating this year's vintage of Beaujolais wine and other libations along with delicious cuisine from Louisiana restaurants.
Colonial Documents Lecture Series
We are excited to partner once again with the Old U.S. Mint, the Friends of the Cabildo and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for the next presentation of this bi-annual lecture series, which will be held in November at the New Orleans Mint Performing Arts Center. The event will include tours of the more than 70,000 French and Spanish judicial and notarial documents housed in the Louisiana Historical Center. The Louisiana State Museum system is in the process of digitizing these colonial-era records to create a free, online database that will be accessible to anyone interested in learning more about colonial Louisiana. This project was made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. More details about this event TBA.
Young Professionals Event
FACC-GC will host a Young Professionals Division gathering in Baton Rouge toward the end of September. Details TBA.
