Summer Fun Fashion Show is May 19

Spring is full of wonderful and beneficial things to do — too many things to do.

Weekends are filling up with garden parties, brunches, teas and luncheons.

That's why the upcoming luncheon to benefit Hospice of the Valley has a welcome difference — it's during the week.

Summer Fun Fashion Show and Luncheon is set for May 19, at 11:30 a.m. at Central United Methodist Church in Decatur. Hospice of the Valley's Healing House community bereavement center will benefit from the $25 admission.

Make reservations as soon as possible by calling 350-5585.

Perhaps you've wondered what kind of clothing Frankie's and the new store La Bella carry. The luncheon and show is a great place to find out. The show also features children's clothing offered by more downtown Decatur stores — Eloise & Henry, Chick Pea and Tammy Eddy's.

Diane Scanland is coordinating the event. Jackie Grimsley of the Casual Gourmet will prepare a girl-appealing luncheon of chicken salad, broccoli nut salad, pasta or fruit salad, crackers and assorted desserts, iced tea and ice water.

Rachael Wiley coordinated the stores and is handling tickets. Robin Limbaugh will decorate the church's fellowship hall with a summer fun theme accenting children.

Lisa Eyster has collected wonderful door prizes and silent auction items, including a hand-made quilt given to Hospice by a patient's family who wanted it to be used to do something good for HOTV.

Mary Lou Boyle and Kathy Tadlock will staff the registration table, Lori Ho-Tung and Cindy Heaton will oversee the silent auction bidding.
