“The fashion show featured some of our members wearing items from The Shoppe,” Marketing Director Jan Holleman said. “But anything that was gently used, re-purposed or homemade was welcome in the show. We just wanted to show people that they can still look attractive on a budget.”
The Center boasts a membership of about 3,000, many of whom were obviously having fun as they walked the runway for an audience of their peers.
“The show is a way of having fun and announcing The Shoppe,” Holleman said. “We offered new and used items, consignment merchandise and more. There was much more than just clothing. I'm hoping we can do an official opening and ribbon cutting in October.”
The center is becoming known for its special events including pool tournaments, yoga, ceramics and painting classes, Bible study, karaoke, and themed-dances. But the calendar is also full of health-related programs of interest to folks over the age of 50.
