The annual Taylor/Shumway Heritage Foundation Fund-Raising Hostess Dinner will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Taylor Stake Center, 309 W. Willow St. This year’s theme, Out to Pasture, But Not Over the Hill, honors those 80 years of age and older for creating the area’s heritage.
Everyone in Taylor, Shumway and the surrounding area is welcome to attend. The suggested donation is $25 per couple or $10 per person, but in these economic times, a lesser donation is appreciated as well.
It will be a fun evening, with the dinner starting right at 6 p.m., followed by a program rendered by the Kendall Shumway family. A special tribute will be given to senior citizens for their contributions to Taylor.
Proceeds from the event will be used to maintain the foundation’s sites and finance its activities, as it is receiving less from other sources. With proceeds from last year’s dinner, the foundation published Ida Webb’s Centennial Book with all the photos and a new index. It can be purchased at the dinner. The foundation is developing the Shumway Schoolhouse lot as a center for Home Evenings or young people’s group activities. It features a sand volleyball court, a tetherball area, a horseshoe pit, tables and benches, and a sidewalk from the front gate to the steps. Call the foundation at 536-6649 to make reservations for group activities
Call Carmen Shumway at 536-7294 if you know of a Taylor resident 80 or older whose family has not been contacted to hostess a table in honor of that person.
Foundation members especially want to welcome and include new people in the area at this event.
