‘Style Show’ benefits Gordon Community Library & Museum

Posted by Julie Elrod on Jan 23rd, 2010 and filed under News.

A ‘Style Show’ took place in the fellowship hall of the First Baptist Church in Gordon last Saturday to raise funds for the soon-to-open, Gordon Community Library & Museum. Fashion models for the style show wore their favorite ensembles, including some designer outfits, that were purchased from the Twice Blessed Shop in downtown Gordon. The Twice Blessed Shop is a second-hand store that is run by volunteers from area churches and organizations.

The event raised nearly $900 which will go towards purchasing children’s books for the library. Door prizes were donated by area businesses and the Harmony Hearts offered some beautiful musical entertainment. After the style show and entertainment, visitors were allowed to take a tour of the library. Board members for the Gordon Community Library & Museum are Lilly Petty – President, Betty Allison – Vice President, Bill Hopkins – Treasurer, Victoria Low – Secretary, Shaye Trigg, Tavia Tiblets, Joel Taylor, Max Wheeler and Jana Morton. 7-R donated cabinets that are being used in the library and Gordon ISD loaned furniture they were not using and donated shelves.

  1. The Gordon Library has a website of its own at where you can keep up with our progress and browse our on-line catalog. We now have almost 5,000 items in our catalog and expect to open our doors to the public in late February.
