The Society for Historians of the Early American Republic, or SHEAR, was established in 1977. It serves as the association for scholars that are dedicated to exploring the early US historical events that happened between 1776 and 1861. Their mission is to advance early republican period research and study among historians, teachers, students, and interested members of the public as well. SHEAR prides itself in upholding historical intellectual standards to the highest level, and they strive to ensure that all historical insights are appropriately shared with schools, museums, libraries, electronic media, public programming, archives, and industry publications.

Catering By Design had the great pleasure of catering the organization’s annual meeting that was held at the NC Museum of History. We wanted to share a few of our favorite event pictures from last weekend, but to see the entire gallery, please visit us on Pinterest. Click here to view the gallery.

The event was so large that we had to set up two full buffet lines. We’re glad we did because there were many hungry historians at the event taking in all the displays and collections that the Museum of History has to offer.

Pictured above is our second buffet station that was set up along the NC State Highway Patrol display. This area gave the attendees a unique look back into the history of our NCSHP.

And as you can see, there were plenty of guests enjoying both food stations.

The menu for the evening was a Southern Style feast. Featured above is our juicy BBQ Chicken, which is a big hit wherever we go. Other menu items consisted of Carolina Style Pulled Pork, with Eastern and Western Carolina BBQ Sauces and other hot sauces. For the sides, we served Gluten Free Penne Pasta Tossed with Portobellos, Roasted Red Peppers in Basil Cream Sauce, Creamy Cole Slaw, and Baked Beans.

Isn’t this a great shot of our freshly baked Yeast Rolls and Butter?

You cannot have a Southern feast without Banana Pudding for dessert. Needless to say, the out-of-state folks really enjoyed this NC favorite.
