The Enterprise Ledger included the news of the club's Dress Drive to replenish the formal wear inventory just before the 2016 prom season begins in the Wiregrass. Read more in the article by Jennifer Calhoun here.
Dozens of dresses were donated by community members to support the dress lending program. Tearful stories were shared as one donor purchased a dress the day of the event just to support the group that knew her father so well. He had been a vendor for many years at the Hollyday Bazaar and memories were shared of his relationship with the club. Another retired spouse gathered dresses from her friends after seeing the Dress Drive featured on Live at Lunch. Stories like these make the club's work so rewarding for everyone involved from the committee chairs that manage the closet all the way to the ladies sharing their dress photos.
