Letter to the Editor:
Fairmont Area Kinship, a non-profit mentoring program for youth, ages 5-15, would like to thank the community for their support in making their 6th annual "Gala Gowns Go Green" sale a success. A sale of prom, wedding and other women's formal attire was graciously hosted by the Five Lakes Center Feb. 15th & 16th. $1,400 was raised for Kinship. Thrivent Financial Fairmont Branch supplied matching funds. Thank you to our drop-off sites, the hard working committee, individuals who donated or consigned gowns, our door prize sponsors and everyone who stopped and checked out our great deals. The purpose of this event was three-fold: to raise funds for Kinship, to get reasonably priced attire available and to clean out closets. Thank you for your support. Make sure to watch for our Industrial/Commercial Rummage Sale on May 1st through May 3rd.
