Prom dress sale a success

(Continued)

“It’s just been fun,” Lisa told the Daily News. “We’ve seen lots of smiling faces.”

Her daughter was among those smiling Saturday as Kalynne’s project came to a successful close.

And as the intent always is for students taking part in John Pratt’s GCHS Chautauqua projects, Kalynne learned a lot about the amount of effort it takes to put together something of this nature along the way.

“We want to start it sooner next year,” Kalynne said, adding that beginning a little earlier may help students find the look they’re looking for in time for the winter formal. This was a “successful test run,” she said, and the feedback received will only help matters when next season’s high school dances roll around.

The message also made its way among the halls of all three local high schools thanks to the positive feedback and Kalynne’s “Greensburg/Decatur County Once Upon a Prom” Facebook page.

Fellow students Rebecca Fletcher, a three-time prom attendee, and Jessica Koors and Michaela Geis who are attending for the first time this spring, agreed that positive word of mouth spurred many students to check out Kalynne’s collections before heading out to shop at stores.

“She advertised it very well,” Rebecca said.

To top off the prevailing air of prom positivity Saturday, Kalynne told the Daily News many unused dresses will be made available to attendees of the Developmental Services, Inc. prom, which is slated for Saturday, April 12.

There was plenty of fun to be had during the sales and collection drives as well.

“We’ve been able to around and say, ‘Why don’t you try this on?’” proud mom Lisa said Saturday afternoon. “It’s been really exciting.”
