Festival: 22 local vendor tables were on display during the event and there were 13 unique and decorated Theta tables, including one by Gov. Mary Fallin and Friends of the Mansion. The Theta tables gave a nod to the decades. Julie Leclercq and Caroline Mildren were co-chairmen.

Tea table: Barb Munneka and Marsha Waldo decked out the tea table with flowers created from vintage plates. Past presidents and 50-year-Thetas poured tea. Homemade cookies baked by the members also were served.
