Oxford EAGLE

Prom dress closet

A prom dress closet is being created again this year at Lafayette High School. The 2011 Prom will be held March 5 at the Inn at Ole Miss. Students will be allowed to shop in the prom dress closet beginning in February. The public is being asked to assist in increasing the number of dresses available by donating gently used dresses, shoes and accessories. Donations will be accepted until Feb. 25. Donations can be dropped off in the LHS office or library. Rainbow Cleaners will accept the dresses and clean them free so dresses can be taken to the cleaners. Tell the cleaners the dress is for the Lafayette High School Prom Dress Drive. For more information, contact the counseling office at 234-3241 or the school office at 234-3614. Beth Burt, librarian, or Lisa Russell, prom coordinator, are available to assist in collecting the donations and answering any questions about the prom dress closet. (February 4, 2011)
