SHIRLEY — This wedding gown from the 1920’s will be among the unique gowns on display at the Shirley Historical Society event on Saturday, May 9.

One dozen antique gowns will be displayed, starting at 2 p.m., and two dozen vintage gowns will be modeled, starting at 3 p.m., at the United Church of Shirley, 4 Lancaster Road, in Shirley.

Also on display will be a collection of wedding cake toppers and of bride dolls.

Light refreshments will be part of the afternoon’s activities.

Tickets to the fundraiser are on sale at the Shirley Historical Society Museum and Hazen Library for $12, if bought before May 9. You can send a check to Shirley Historical Society at P.O. Box 217, Shirley, MA 01464 if you would like us to set aside some tickets for you. If you wait until the day of the event, admission will cost $15.

We think this would be a special way to spend time with your family on Mother’s Day weekend.
