Sunday Soirees are back at the Doris Bardon Community Cultural Center

The Doris Bardon Community Cultural Center is bringing back its Sunday Soirees.  The soirees were made popular by the late Gainesville activist Doris Bardon.  Gainesville musician Cathy Dewitt is helping to plan these weekend events, and says it’s great to pay homage to someone who was such an asset to the community.
