Preservationists plan fun fundraiser
Anyone wanting to promote historic preservation in Lake Oswego can do it this weekend when the Lake Oswego Preservation Society holds a fundraiser called Your Story is Our Story.
The event will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday in the Pendleton Home Store in Lake View Village at 385 First St. Reservations are not necessary.
The evening will feature many highlights, including the introduction of the societys new poster, designed by Paul A. Lanquist, who will be on hand to sign his work. The poster features the historic George Rogers House designed by architect Van Evera Bailey.
Marylou Colver, founder of the preservation society, promises an enjoyable evening that will also help Lake Oswego maintain its historical tradition.
All of the Lake Oswego Preservation Societys products and events not only relate to our mission of supporting Lake Oswegos history fabric through advocacy and education, but they are fun, Colver said. This is especially true of the Nov. 9 event hosted by the Lake Oswego Pendleton Home Store.
Those attending are asked to bring their vintage Lake Oswego photos to be scanned for inclusion in the Lake Oswego Public Librarys photo database. The library staff will be on hand to schedule oral history interviews for anyone wishing to share their memories of Lake Oswego.
There will be a drawing for three special prizes: an overnight stay at the Oregon Caves Chateau, a national landmark lodge; two tickets to the 2014 Classic Houses and History Boat Tour on Oswego Lake; and a Pendleton blanket to keep you warm this winter.
This event is being put on by the Lake Oswego Preservation Society, the Pendleton Home Store and Friends of the Oregon Caves and Chateau.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
