Sam Walton's favorite dessert, blackberry cobbler, completed the meal at the Old State House Museum Associates Annual Supper on Oct. 10. The event at the museum always features a bit of Arkansas history and this year it was "An Evening Celebrating Sam Walton."
After guests enjoyed cocktails on the front lawn of the museum, they gathered in the 1885 House of Representatives Chamber for dinner and a program. Dinner included a fall mixed salad, Manhattan glazed chicken on rice pilaf, grilled asparagus, candied carrots and the cobbler.
Hung on each seat for attendees to take home were gift bags from the Walmart Museum which included a copy of Sam Walton: Made in America, a Hot Wheels version of Walton's 1979 red and white Ford truck and a Moon Pie.
Supper Chairwoman Nikki Lawson welcomed guests, and Jenny Adair, president of the museum associates, introduced the guest speaker, Alan Dranow, senior director of the Walmart Heritage Group.Gallery: The Old State House Museum Associates Annual Supper
