Fashion Show


We’ve received a lot of wonderful entries for the fashion show, but we know there are a lot more fabulous things out there that we all want to see!!!   So, the new deadline is April 30!!!   This is a generous extension and takes the planners pretty much down to the wire in making preparations.   So, please don’t wait till the last possible minute.   There will be no more extensions.
