PENDLETON - The Umatilla County Historical Society will host its "Table setting" exhibit from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 30, at Heritage Station Museum, 108 S.W. Frazer Ave.
The public is welcome to attend the free event.
The "Ladies Choice" collection will be eclectic with the emphasis placed on accessorizing. Tablescapes suitable for a variety of situations will be designed by 20 women from around Umatilla County.
Settings will range from aperitifs and wine with hors d'oeuvres to an elegant Victorian tea, and from informal to formal dining using kitchen pottery and lovely china and crystal. A Japanese scene promises to add a touch of the Far East. Two tables are designed along a western scheme, two proclaim patriotism, and one reflects a bed and breakfast brunch at Christmas time. The picnic, the Sunday basket social, the tailgater party and the southwestern patio barbecue themes will be harbingers of Spring.
Presenters from Adams, Echo, Helix, and Pendleton include: Diane Berry with Charlotte Berry, Carol Blanc, Cheryl Doyle, Margaret Gianotti, Mary Ann Hamley, Betty Lou Holeman, Colleen Hunt, Dotty Judy and Ila Lorenzen.
Also showing will be Shirlee McGreer with Sylvia Clawson, Laura Jean Shaw, Sara Stuvland, Dixie Temple, Patricia Terjeson, Paula Thompson, Virginia Tubbs, and Jean Westersund.
Mary Jane Stangier and Helen Swanson are co-chairwomen of the refreshment committee, assisted by Jane Whitford. Event chairman is Virginia Tubbs.
