2014 Mayor's Ball
The Beaverton Historical Society, has been lucky enough to be nominated as one of the beneficiaries for the 2014
The money we get from the Mayor's Ball enables us to keep the History Center open.
As participants we are required to provide auction items for the Ball. One of our responsibilities is to collect (23) bottles of wine from our Board and members. The value of the bottle needs to be between $15.00 and $20.00, and needs to be at the Center by 12/01/2013. There will be donor forms that need to be filled out for each person’s donation and they will be available at the Center.
We greatly appreciate any donations you can make.
Featured Collection Item
Ruby-flash decorative glassware reached its height of popularity from 1890-1915 as an inexpensive alternative to cranberry glass. It was produced in many sizes and shapes, often sold as souvenirs of fairs and hometowns, or as an expression of affection.
By 1900 people were flocking to ocean beaches and cottages for summertime surf bathing and relaxation. Although mixed swimming had become acceptable, modest swimwear exposed very little skin. Beaverton resident Edna Mott received this postcard, send from Seaside in July 1907.
