Staff reports

The Smith Valley Community Hall will return to the 1860s on Sunday, Sept. 26, at 2 p.m., with the presentation of “The Victorian Disrobe,” a vintage fashion show, sponsored by Soroptimist International of Smith Valley.

Victorian fashions will be modeled by young ladies of Smith Valley and the show will be moderated by Carolyn Loftis of Sierra Loft Winds of Reno. Loftis will tell how she acquired her collection of vintage clothes and will show the purpose and use of all of the 16 pieces of clothing worn by women of that era.

“Do you have a dress from the 1800s? Wear it and get into the spirit of the day,” said spokesperson Arlene Oakes.

Old-fashioned refreshments will be served.

Tickets are $5. For more information and/or tickets, call (775) 465-2422. Tickets will also be available at the door, at Smith Valley Realty in Wellington and Smith Valley Irrigation in Smith.
