A flair of Texas style was on display along with delicious tales of food at the Farmersville Historical Society’s annual luncheon and style show Saturday, Feb. 24.

Despite ominous weather, more than 100 individuals took part in the event, which acts as the society’s main fundraiser.

At the event, attendees got a first-hand look on spring styles in a style show provided by My Country Closet, a shop in downtown Farmersville owned by PJ Scarbrough.

While enjoying the show, luncheon guests dined on food made by the Farmersville Historical Society members. Models from My Country Closet walked through the audience allowing participants to touch fabrics.

In order to raise funds, a silent auction and a White Elephant table was available for eager shoppers looking for a good buy.

Proceeds from the style show are used to help in the restoration of the Bain-Honaker House and a variety of projects for the historical society.

For their entertainment, attendees got a lesson in food festivals throughout Texas from Rose-Mary Rumbley.

“We really appreciate everyone supporting the society,” President Bertie Neu said.
