Complete with cuisine, beer and wine, and good-natured competition, the event’s tickets are available now for the upcoming German themed fundraiser Sei Frohlich:  A Night for the Museum.  The event will be held at the historic Belton Train Depot.

“The depot will be transformed into a German wunderbar beirhaus and amazing cuisine and drinks will be served to all attendees. And the bidding can get quite competitive, but all in good fun,” said BAMA President J. E. Palmer.

Tickets are $30 each or two for $50 and include complimentary drinks, beer, wine, seated dinner, a bidding card, and lots of fun competition among bidders. The Mercantile is providing dinner, with German Cornish hens, with German sides, appetizers and desserts.
