Adopt a Door is Back!

You won't want to miss
Memphis Heritage's
Second Annual Adapt-A-Door Fundraiser

Here's how it works...
Contestants will be able to choose from a collection of doors, gathered by our dedictated Preservation Posse Volunteers, to recycle and transform it into a fabulous work of art. The only limitation is your imagination and using at least 70% of the original door. Then you make a PERSONAL....CREATIVE....MASTERPIECE out of your door!

Adapt-A-Door Competition by this date.
