Ginger Rogers Fashion Show!

SOHS will be hosting a fashion show of glamorous dresses worn by our very own Hollywood star, Ginger Rogers. While not originally from the Rogue Valley, Ginger purchased a 1000 acre ranch along the Rogue River in the early 1940s and retired to the Rogers Rogue River Ranch in 1969 after she sold her Beverly Hills home.

Twenty-two dresses from her estate will be featured in a fashion show to be held on Sunday, May 1 at the Rogue Valley Country Club. The show will be a fundraiser for SOHS.

Want to join in the fun? Come to an informational planning meeting this Thursday, January 27 at 4 pm at the History Center (106 N. Central Avenue in Medford). We are looking for volunteers to help plan and coordinate this fun event!

For more information, call Allison at (541) 494-0273.

  1. What a great way to take a day to step back into the past and enjoy the music and beauty!! I heard that Roberta Olden, Ms. Rogers’s former secretary, will be giving a presentation at the fashion show too. It sounds like a fabulous afternoon! I wouldn't miss it for the world!!
