An Overly Raker Retrospective

This summer display at the Fulton House depicts the creative business journey of Helen Overly and Freda Raker from a small in-house gift shop to a multimillion-dollar soft sculpture industry known throughout the nation and beyond. Many examples of Overly-Raker products will be on display including an example of a soft sculpture that was used to decorate the White House for Christmas in 1986. Helen Overly's book, Making Friends in Business, will be for sale and Helen will give a book talk about her experiences in business (time to be announced).

Fulton House summer hours are Fridays and Saturdays 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Sundays 1 to 4 p.m.

Volunteers are needed to sit with the exhibits. Anyone interested should call Edie Coleman at 814-290-8899 or Tom Duffey at 717-360-5622.
