Merrilee Berger brought The Prom to New Life this month.  It was so beautiful and so special.  She transformed the gym into an elegant setting for enjoying a delicious lunch from Gennaro’s Trattoria and fabulous desserts provided by all the volunteers.  Over a hundred dresses were donated so the girls could select one that suited her taste and complimented her figure.  Volunteers helped the girls with hair, make-up and nails.  The girls were pampered and adorned with beautiful dresses and flowers.  Our New Life girls are so beautiful to us on any given day, it was a delight to give them this experience to dress up and feel extra special.  After getting all fancied up, the girls spent some time making paper wrist corsages and picture frames to be used for their “Prom” picture.  The luncheon of Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo, salad and Gennaro’s famous garlic knots  was delicious.  All the beautiful desserts were nicely displayed by long time volunteers Katy Barger and Tara Johnson who also helped with serving.  It was a momentous occasion with over 40 volunteers showing up to help.  Thank you to all the volunteers.  During our meeting before we got started with all the activities, we had a special announcement.  Our Junior Leader, Kerrilee Berger is heading off to the Airforce Acadamy.  We were able to celebrate Kerrilee with a breakfast and special gift.  We will miss her and wish her all the best as she starts this new chapter in her life.  Thank you Merrilee for this wonderful experience and all the hard work you did to make it a reality.
