Members of the Seventy Five Club had their fall dance at Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. Two hundred people attended the event that convened with cocktails at 7:30 p.m. A gourmet dinner featured beef tenderloin; for dessert, chocolate fudge cake and berries were served, with a "75” in powdered sugar on the plate. The social club was formed in the 1930s with 75 members. New members and their wives are Phil and Toby Walker, Zach and Alison Taylor, James and Carol Hampton, Paul and Jane Austin, Clay and Holly Healey, Roger and Peggy Collins, Barry and Anne Gray, and Lee and Sherry Beasley.

VINTAGE TREASURES • Junior League sustaining members met in the home of Linda Lee Carpenter for a party. They were asked to bring a "vintage treasure” (antiques, linens, lamps or china) for The Remarkable Shop. And they did just that. The 120 attendees brought silver serving items, Limoges boxes, an antique clock, a bronze lamp with a glass shade, a child's rocking chair and some antique linens. The serving table was draped in ivory satin and lace. On the menu were cucumber sandwiches, roasted red pepper cheesecake, hot pecan dip, cheddar and strawberry ring, and assorted desserts and sugar cookies made by Linda Garrett in the shape of fall leaves and acorns. Guests included Carol Sue Taylor, Nancy Greer, Ranell Brown, Sue Spradling, Susan Robertson, Kaye Cook, Sally Bentley, Polly Nichols, Martha Mullally, Betsy Hyde, Cathy Cross, Karen Luke, Ann Garrett, Karen James, Kitty Champlin, Elaine Jackson, Marty Margo, Phyllis Wheeler, Patti Marshall, Linda Kennedy Rosser, Betty Jo Law and Jonna Kirschner. GRAN ENTERTAINS • Jackie Jones (also known as Gran) invited friends to meet her grandson, Benjamin Carter Jones, 6 months. It was a sip-and-see party, and the baby was wide awake for it. Bouquets of white roses decorated the table, and tea sandwiches and party cookies were served to the guests at the come-and-go event. Guests included his mother Shalla Jones, Claire Puckett, Sandy Shapard, Jackie Acers, Becky Buchanan, Nancy Greer and Linda James. ‘HOW TO' PARTY • How to be a good mother-in-law was the subject of advice given at a luncheon honoring Barbara Quillian and Sandy Edge at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. Jeaneen Naifeh and her daughter, Jenee Lister, asked guests to write their advice for the two mothers-in-law before the wedding of their children, Jennifer Edge and Patrick Quillian. The notes went into a beautiful bag, which was a gift for the bride. Guests included Barbara Beeler, Terry Bradley, Jane White, Marty Margo, Leslie Rainbolt-Forbes, Carol Solomon, Penny McCaleb, Karen Watson, Candy Ainsworth, Samina Baber and Betsy Hyde. Other parties honored the couple. Terry and Hank Bradley hosted a cocktail party.
