The Committee of 100 held its summer luncheon at Marlsgate in Scott on June 18.
The group of statewide volunteers helps promote and raise money to support the Ozark Folk Center State Park in Mountain View and its efforts to preserve Ozark folk culture. Susan Kemp serves as the president of the Committee of 100.
Members and their guests enjoyed tours and a history of the garden and historic home by owners Martha Ellen and Beau Talbot. For lunch, guests dined on pork loin, mashed potatoes and asparagus at tables decorated with arrangements of magnolia blossoms. For dessert, there was bread pudding.
A program by Lenore Shoults, curator of the Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas, provided information about Arkansas portrait artist Betty Dortch Russell McMath, whose grandparents were Marlsgate's original owners.Gallery: The Committee of 100 luncheon
