FASHIONS WITH FLARE, JUNE 15, 2015

Fashions with Flare - Community Justice Fashion Show 2015 poster
The summer-like weather is finally upon us after a long-delayed spring, and what better way to celebrate than with a summer fashion show.

Fashions with Flare is a fundraising event scheduled for Monday June 15th to support ongoing operation costs for the Lanark County Community Justice Program.

The event will be held at the Perth Civitan Club with doors opening at 6:00 p.m. for a selection of treats and snacks as well as the opportunity to bid on wonderful items in the silent auction. The fashion show will start promptly at 7:00 p.m., featuring clothes from Fall River Fashions, Lavender and Lace, Giant Tiger, Fashion Envy and Jewels. Our volunteers are busily at work planning this 3rd annual event, which will bring a few surprises.
We are pleased to welcome Hugh Colton as our emcee for Fashions with Flare and the first fifty ladies through the door will receive a complimentary flower. In addition to the silent auction, there will be door prizes and a raffle, as well as the chance to take home one of our unique table centrepieces. There will be a cash bar as well as tea and coffee available throughout the evening.

Lanark County Community Justice Program (LCCJP) was formed in 1998 and provides service throughout Lanark County and the Town of Smiths Falls. LCCJP receives court diversion referrals from the police services and the Crown Attorney’s office for both youth and adults on a pre-charge or post-charge basis. Our trained volunteer facilitators bring together everyone involved in an incident in a community forum with the goal of healing the harm that has been done in our communty. Accused persons gain an understanding of the harm they created. Complainants come to understand the circumstances that led to the crime being committed. Both the accused and the complainants have a voice in creating an agreement to bring a resolution to the incident.
Community support is a vital part of our onging operations and we recognize the Perth Civitan, the participating clothing stores as well as the numerous businesses who are donating silent auction and door prize items for this fashion show. LCCJP is also proud to be a United Way Lanark County partner and appreciates the financial support we receive from many service clubs and community groups. For more information about the Lanark County Community Justice Program, please visit our website at http://www.commjustice.org/ or contact our Executive Director, Beth Peterkin, at 613-264-1558 or beth@commjustice.org.
