Tweet Kimball, the owner of Cherokee Castle and Ranch, entertained friends, political leaders and royalty. Meg Anderson was the caterer and John Lake was the butler for these events.

Meg and John will share a PowerPoint on the history of the castle. Catering royal dinners, greeting, and taking care of VIPs and Royalty were exciting events.  They will share fascinating stories about these events and personal stories of their friendship with Tweet and other interesting experiences during their 40 year history at the castle.

There will be a drawing following the program of Meg’s cookbook,

“Castle Entertaining from Ranch Hands to Royalty”.

Meg’s cookbook will be available for purchase at 6:30 P.M. and following the program.
