Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

Andrea and Ed Loughry graciously opened their lovely downtown home for a huge group of sponsors to kick-off “Party of Twelve,” an original play by Mary Donnet Johnson. “Leading Ladies of Rutherford County History” is a community partnership created to give voice to women from the past who have shaped our area history and culture. The project includes this original play, sharing of local ancestors’ stories and more.

Guests enjoyed passed appetizers and drinks while visiting with friends; some came from other states to celebrate the history of their hometown. Andrea, always supportive of the arts, was extremely instrumental in the success of this event, not only opening her home, but promoting it with her friends who volunteered their time and their talents.
