Circle April 23rd on Calendar Three Times for Special Events


Gilmore, Joan, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Circle April 23rd on your calendars. As a matter of fact, circle it three times because three special events are scheduled that day.

At noon, Gov. Henry Bellmon will be guest speaker at a luncheon by the Oklahoma City Public School Foundation Inc.

That evening, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Elizabeth Dole will be honored by the Young Women's Christian Association. Both of these events will be at the Skirvin Plaza Hotel in the Grand Ballroom. (Incidentally, by that date, the ballroom will have its carpeting and decor refurbished.)

That same evening, World Neighbors will be having a "family picnic" with actress/singer odel Shari Belafonte-Harper as special guest. This party will be at the Marriott Hotel.

The public school foundation will be honoring valedictorians, salutatorians and their parents and teachers at this annual spring awards luncheon. Tax-deductible tickets are $15 per person.

Dole will be in Oklahoma City to speak at the YWCA annual meeting. The dinner also will serve as a celebration of the 80th birthday of the Young Women's Christian Association. Tickets to this dinner are $25.

The World Neighbors picnic invitation is cleverly done with drawings of animals representing the parts of the world where the organization is at work. The invitation promises "no ants, no uncles, no home movies, no children, no sunburn." However, it also promises food, drink, dancing, friends entertainment, fun and prizes, one of which will be a 1987 Ford EXP, donated by Southwest Ford and Town & Country Ford.

It can't be just coincidence that Jean Gumerson is on the planning committee and her son, Ted, just happens to own both of those car agencies.

Sisters of Swing will provide the entertainment. To be honored along with Shari Belafonte-Harper, star of the television series "Hotel," will be World Neighbors' overseas directors from South and Central America, Africa and Asia. Belafonte-Harper has gone on tours of World Neighbors projects and participated in video tapings for broadcast.

Anyway, April 23rd is going to be a big, big day. It's also the third day of the annual Festival of the Arts downtown at the Myriad Gardens. . .

- Speaking of the festival, on Saturday and Sunday the Arts Commandos will construct the framework of the creation station "clipper ship," U.S.S. Myriad, which, like the Loch Myriad Monster last year, will be completed by adults and children during the festival. . .

- Winos - or should we say wine afficianados - will be interested in the upcoming exhibition at the Oklahoma Museum of Art, 7316 Nichols Rd. The exhibit will feature the striking labels of the wines produced by the Chateau Mouton Rothschild.

That the Mouton Rothschild wines are superb is common knowledge. Not everyone knows that each year's vintage has its own painting which becomes the label.

Braque, Chagall, Cocteau, Dali, Kandinski, Miro, Motherwell, Picasso and Warhol are among the internationally known artists who have created the Mouton Rothschild labels.

The exhibition opens to the public on Tuesday and will be on display through May 24. Hours at the museum are 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and from 1-5 p.m. Sundays. Admission is $2.50 for adults; $1.50 for senior citizens and children, and free to students below the seventh grade and to museum members.

The Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, daughter of Baron Philippe de Rothschild who started it all back in 1924, will be in Oklahoma City for the opening. She will be honored at the museum members preview reception Sunday evening and at several other private events. …
