More than 100 years after the fact, people are still fascinated by the sinking of the great ocean liner, the Titanic.

To commemorate the event, a group of volunteers working to preserve and restore the historic Jones Mansion are planning a special “Taste of the Past: Dinner on the Titanic.” Saturday’s event will feature dishes that have been recreated from Titanic’s first-, second- and third-class menus, along with period cocktails and music.

Four days after leaving Southampton, England, en route to New York, the Titanic hit an iceberg on April 14, 1912, and sank in the Atlantic Ocean. More than 1,500 people, including passengers and crew, lost their lives in the disaster.

“We’re honoring the lives of those lost and commemorating the maiden voyage of the ship,” said lead volunteer Casey Heilman.

Although all 60 tickets for the dinner have been spoken for, the event may be held again next year, she said.
