PAGE 3-A HOGANSVILLE HOME NEWS - THURSDAY, SEPT. 29, 2005 ELEGANCE FOR HOGANSVILLE- Tulla White and his culinary crew at last year&apos;s Hummingbird Festival Dinner. Tasteful Fundraiser TuUa White's Plans for Festival Dinner Sets New Standard Hogansville's own Tulla White, the culinary expert responsible for the three restaurants in LaGrange's Downtown Restaurant Group, returns to his home town every fall as the cre- ative force behind the Hogansville Hummingbird Festival. Held at the Victoria Belle Special Event Center on Main Street, the dinner and silent auction is festival's principle fund raiser. That fact takes on spe- Cial significance this year because 25 percent of the entire proceeds of the auc- tion are going to Hurricane Relief. So the festival commit- tee team that labors to put on the dinner every year is making special efforts to make the 2005 dinner a sell out and Tulla White is no exception. "I've been to all the fes- tival dinners and this year's menu is absolutely dyna- mite," says festival co-chair Wanda Lowe. 'qhlla's done three dinners now and he keeps getting better and bet- ter." The four course dinner includes tea, coffee, wine or beer. Here's the 2005 menu in its entirety: Appetizer Shrimp Luciano- jumbo shrimp stuffed with moz- zarella cheese, wrapped in thin sliced proscuitto ham over angel hair pasta with a lemon, butter wine caper sauce Salad Mixed greens with honey roaste d pecans, dried cran- berries, granny smith apples, strawberry vinai- grette. Entrees Mixed grill- Australian Lamb chop (black cherry demi sauce), filet mignon (roasted shallot demi sauce), and Nodine smokehouse andouille sausage (tarragon butter), mashed potatoes and saut6ed spinach Dessert Chocolate bourbon pecan pie Dinner tickets are $60 and include entry to the fes- tival's silent auction, which also has been heavily revamped this year. Besides a glittering array of objects d'art, Jackie Terrail, beauty editor for 85 South Out and About Magazine, has put together a number of theme packages, a first this year. "We're giving our quali- ty-loving bargain hunters a lot to bid on," says the pert Ms. Terrail. "We're got selections of great regional restaurants in Newnan, Hogansville and LaGrange. We've got Falcon tickets, a signed foot- ball from Mark Richt, bas- kets of Channel beauty prod- ucts, a great wine and cheese basket from Ingles, and at least two weekend getaways from local bed and break- fasts that include restau- rants and shopping." LaGrange College Hits Record High Enrollment LaGrange College began its 175th academic year with a record fall semester enroll- ment of 1,046 students, a new benchmark that edges out last year's all- "Anytime you time high by have back-to- one student, according to back years of s t a t i s t ic s record enroll- released by the institution ments, you have initiative of building a stu- dent body that approaches 1,200 by fall 2008."
