SHEPHERD HOSTS SHOW: Shepherd of the Valley Howland residents are hosting an Antique Tent Show 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday at their Howland community, 4100 North River Road NE, Howland.

The show will be modeled after the popular television program “Antiques Road Show,” with appraisers of many kinds of antiques on hand. Among them will be Richard Cervantes, who appears periodically on “Antiques Road Show” as a specialist on Asian art and oriental rugs. Other specialists will appraise antique dolls, Native American artifacts, jewelry, silver, primitive collectibles, antique clothing and other antique items.

The event is free. Each attendee is invited to bring two items for appraisal.
