Dear Editor,
This past Saturday about 60 special needs individuals and their family members or care givers were able to enjoy "An Afternoon at the Beach" Prom here in Crawfordsville. The Montgomery County Civitan Club sponsored the event at the Crawfordsville American Legion Post on Saturday afternoon "Thanks" to a Hoosier Heartland State Bank "Gives Back" grant and generous donations from about 40 area merchants including Arni's, Pastry Plus, and Just Because Flower Shop. The beach scene for the event was set by art donated by Athens Art from their Oceania Gala earlier this year as well as other decorations and dancing on the beach was inspired by tunes provided by Andy Stetler of DJ K Stet. As attendees headed home after a fun and tiring afternoon of dancing, eating and partying at "The Beach", they each were given a goody bag of donated items from local merchants, a flower bouquet, and a photo of themselves at "The Beach" to remember the event, taken and donated by Kathy, John, and Matt Steele. The Montgomery County Civitan members "Thank" all area merchants and individuals that helped make this event possible.
Ralph Illingworth,
Secretary, Montgomery County Civitan Club
