Every young person deserves to enjoy a wonderful prom, and dressing in style is a big part of that special evening. That’s what the folks at Kiwanis, Howard Mohr Community Center, and the Park District of Forest Park think, and they’re going to do everything they can to make sure that every young person will be dressed tyo the nines on the big night.

Your help is needed to make this happen. Please consider donating gently used (or even new) dresses, shoes, purses and jewelry for girls, and suits, shirts and ties for boys. You can drop off your donations to Karen Dyhlewski at the Howrad Mohr Community Center, or to Rachell Entler at the Park District of Forest Park. Help with makeup, hair and nails will also be welcome.

For further information, you can e-mail Mary Win Connor at winb ald@aol.com, or Karen Dylewski at kdylewski@forestpark.net.

I’ll bet you had a great time at your prom, didn’t you? Consider helping a young person do the same this spring!
