UNION, OREGON__Thank you to all who attended Pioneer Day, Saturday, September 7. It was a fun day and lots of the museum’s fans helped us celebrate our 50th Anniversary.
Next, the Union County Museum will host September’s Third Tuesday event in the Little White Church, Tuesday, September 17, at 7 p.m. The title of the presentation is Celebrating the Artwork of Robbie Waller.
Caralee Anley, granddaughter of Robbie Waller, will be sharing the story of Robbie’s prolific artistry. Robbie, a long-time resident of Union County who passed away in 2018, was a philanthropist and china painter who spent many years teaching art classes and showing her work at the Union County Fair. As part of Caralee’s presentation, select pieces of Robbie’s art will be available for a cash donation to the Union County Museum.
Caralee Anley, originally from the Portland area, now lives in La Grande enjoying a slower pace. She loves to travel, design creative spaces, and volunteer for community events.
The museum thanks Dulcimer Delirium for their delightful music at the July Third Tuesday, David Arnold for presenting his collection of vintage railroad promotional art at the August Third Tuesday and the audience members who attended each event. Watch for news of the Union County Museum Society’s Annual Meeting, scheduled for October 11, in the Little White Church.
