Erin Scheer and Jennifer Alvarez were in charge of checking out ladies once they found their prom dress. If someone wanted to purchase a dress, all the sales were final, which meant that there were no returns, and the selling price was not negotiable since the actual seller wasn’t present. Erin Scheer exclaimed, “All the dresses were at reasonable prices, so girls could still get a really beautiful dress for a low cost.”
Once the prom bazaar ended at noon, the clean up crew was in charge of taking down the changing booths, putting back the chairs that were used, and putting the dress racks back in Mrs. Roth’s room. Their main responsibility, though, was to put the dresses in seller order. This means that they grouped all the dresses together that belonged to one seller. This would make it easier for the FCCLA members and the sellers to find the dresses once the seller came to pick them up on March 11.
Dakota Schroeder mentioned, “I liked how a lot of girls came out to support it. I think we should do it again because it would probably go over better and with less worry.”
After many weeks of planning and getting things together, FCCLA was finally able to have their first prom bazaar in hopes that it will become a tradition for years to come at New Haven High. FCCLA raised $150 for the track project and sold $925 worth of dresses. As FCCLA sponsor, Mrs. Miller said, “I would like to do it again next year now that we know what to expect.”
