When I arranged a Fund Raiser and ‘ Gown Drive’ while I was home visiting the parents and my ol’ city of St.Louis, I thought I knew everyone that was going to show, and which gowns I would be getting my hands on. It was an INCREDIBLE surprise when an ol’ high school-mate popped her head in with this gown in her arms. This was one of so many touching moments for me while working on this project. Definitely a surprise to find out, years later, that so many people remember and like me from what seemed to be a strange and awkward few years in School… After my Freshman year, I transferred from a private to public school, but it seems I left my mark in just one short year.
Shannon’s two sons accompanied her to drop off her gown, and the looks on their faces were priceless as they watched me try it on… These short moments together are not ones that I would soon forget…
As of this posting, this gown is still on the rack… The weight of the gown is substantial, and the train alone leaves me with a complicated decision of how to keep it up and out of the way…. I’m sure I’ll find something creative to do with it, if i have to sling it over my pack =-)
