Second Edition Fashion Show at Laurel Parc
Laurel Parc, a retirement home in Bethany Village, held a fashion show in July featuring clothing from Second Edition Resale. Volunteer models from the center came in to the store and selected and bought the clothing they would be modeling.
Cedar Mill Library Volunteer Coordinator Kevin Kelley says, “It was a very classy event, complete with great food from Bethany Village Grill, a room at the Bethany Community Center at Bethany Village, very nice gifts at each place setting, and a great turnout. They also had materials to take home about Laurel Parc for anyone who was interested.“
Second Edition manager Nancy Paysinger presented information about the shop. Laurel Parc Marketing Director Norma Brainerd introduced the models, and Kelley gave a presentation on volunteering at Cedar Mill Library, Bethany Branch and Second Edition. She also introduced Roxanne Wilcox, the Bethany Branch Librarian.
