• Shelby County Public Library: Envision the 1920s with library’s fashion show

    Great Gatsby! A 1920s fashion shows off pinstripe suits, silk shirts, and the just-right tie for men, with women opting for fun dresses with flirty fringe in flapper dresses and tassel dresses or sophisticated looks like the sheath dress or sequin dress. Of course, the right outfit will be accessorized so that they catch the eye, such as headbands, long gloves, brooches, earrings, even feathers. Men could complete their drip with a neutral-shade fedora, colorful pocket squares, and snazzy cufflinks.

    Staff and friends of the Shelby County Public Library will model the best of ‘20s looks on Tuesday, June 25 at 7 pm inside the Shelbyville Main Branch. Women’s and men’s trends will be highlighted while Donna Dennison, head of the Genealogy & History Department, narrates the pageant.

    For those who prefer to spend time in nature, Amanda White, head of the Adult Services Department, leads a walk in Meltzer Woods at 10 am on Tuesday, June 25. Experience a nature adventure in one of Indiana’s remaining old growth forests. All ages are welcome to join the easy 1.2-mile hike. Hikers should bring their own water and wear appropriate footwear. The woods are located at 1544 S. 600 East, Shelbyville. Parking is across the road from the trailhead.
