The Lawrence Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual "Taste of Lawrence" fall mixer Wednesday on the grounds of Meadowbrook Apartments, 15th and Crestline.
More than 1,000 people are expected to attend the event, which provides the chamber an opportunity to recognize and thank the faculty and staff at Lawrence and Douglas County universities, public and private schools. The universities and schools are: Kansas University; Haskell Indian Nations University; Baker University; Lawrence, Eudora, Baldwin and Lecompton public schools; St. John School; the Douglas County Christian School and Century School.
A total of 24 local restaurants will offer samples of their most popular dishes. The mixer gets under way at 5:30 p.m.
