Lunch & Learn

Every year, we hold a fundraising luncheon to spotlight our inductee into the Crawford County Potter Hall of Fame with a guest speaker to highlight their history and relevance to Crawford Co. We also invite in an educator to come give us some insight or history to the area.

To be an inductee, the deceased person must be known to have made pottery here in Crawford Co with evidence from sources such as census records, articles, family history, and pieces of pottery.



Each ticket is $25.00 per person and must be purchased by May 1, 2024. Any late purchases past that date or purchased at the door will incur an additional $5.00 fee.

Tickets may be purchased:

  • in person at the Roberta Crawford Chamber of Commerce at 39 Wright Ave, Roberta, GA.
  • call 478-954-6395 or email to meet with our CCHS President.
  • by mail: PO Box 622, Roberta, Georgia 31078

This year’s lunch will be provided from Champion’s Restaurant and, our resident history researcher, Mrs. Kathleen Cook.
