2020 will be the Lucan Area Heritage Society's 25th year  in operation. That is 25 years of self-sufficient operation thanks to the undying efforts of our heritage volunteers.

A major source of income for the museum has been our major fundraising events. First in 2012 with the Titanic Ball, and then the 2015 Gangster Gala, the Heritage Society has put on quality nights of entertainment, all to raise funds for the operation of the Lucan Area and Donnelly Museum.

This year the theme will be a 50's Rock & Roll Extravaganza! 

The event will include a four course gourmet dinner by Award Winning Chef David Grassie of the Sticky Pudding. There will be a performance by the up-and-coming Canadian band The
, as well as beloved award winning local Elvis Tribute Performer Matt Martin
There will also be an Old Fashioned Jive Competition open to all comers with auditions in April 2020.

That is just part of the show, the Lucan Community Centre will be decked to the nines with 1950s atmosphere and regalia and we heartily encourage dressing in period-appropriate attire! 

It's going to be one rockin' night! Don't believe me? Check out photos from our past events below and see just how special these nights really are!

You can also volunteer! It's an excellent way to get your community volunteer hours in for High School students. We have had the help of our local young volunteers during our previous two events and they helped us deliver spectacular events! You can be a part of that too! Is there a better way to gain your hours than by taking a time-machine back to the 1950s? You can either get in touch with Sheila at the info above, or contact
