Wisconsin's Oregon Public Library Celebrates its Centennial
Link to October 8 Wisconsin State Journal article, "As Oregon's library marks its centennial, 96-year-old rosemaler offers a painted tribute".
Excerpt: Clarice Christensen is almost as old as this village's library, which has its centennial celebration Saturday.
To commemorate the event, Christensen, 96, has painted a decorative plate that will hang in the library — one of the many ways this longtime Oregon resident has left her mark on the community.
"When you get this old, you're supposed to stay in the background," Christensen said of her involvement in the celebration. "I'm enjoying it."
