Pineville, Louisiana – Save the Dairy Barn at Buhlow Lake will present an informative Save the Dairy Barn Fundraiser, taking place at BrainSurge, 1260-G Texas Avenue, Alexandria, Louisiana 71301 on Tuesday, August 30 at 6:30 p.m. featuring Dave Curry and Nathan Martin.

Most everyone in CENLA is aware of the old Dairy Barn, an historic icon atop the hill on the property of the Central Louisiana State Hospital overlooking Buhlow Lake in Pineville. But do you know the history of the barn, its current condition, progress, plans, and challenges to preserve it? What may be the future of the barn? Learn some answers and share dreams and ideas of what it could become.

Admission to the event is just $12, and thanks to the generosity of BrainSurge, proceeds will be donated to the Save the Dairy Barn Fund at the Central Louisiana Community Foundation. Seating is limited; reservations are encouraged - www.brainsurge.biz/register .

Save the Dairy Barn at Buhlow Lake members say:

“The barn belongs to us as citizens of Louisiana, and ultimately it is up to us to save it.”

- Nathan Martin, Board Member

“... but if we don’t fix it, we can’t dream.”

- Kendra Van Cleef, Founder and President
