St. Francis Shop celebrates 25th year

There’s a new fun event coming to Huron — the first annual St. Francis Shop Fashion Show & Luncheon! Holy Trinity Catholic School will be the host for this event, which will be held in the Multipurpose Room on March 1 at noon.

The timing for this new event is appropriate, as this year marks the 25th anniversary for the St. Francis Shop.

Sister Jean Huntimer started the shop back in 1989 as a way to help the less fortunate in this community, as well as help the church through proceeds from the shop.

Since its inception, there have been five store managers: Sister Jean, Bill Davis, Marge Bowne, Deanna Corcoran and Sheila Keeler, the current manager. With the help of these individuals, the St. Francis Shop has continued to do a fine job following through with Sister’s original goals.

The idea for the Fashion Show and Luncheon came from current store manager, Keeler. She thought it would be a fun way to showcase the beautiful clothes and accessories that come through the shop, all while supporting Catholic education in Huron.

The Fashion Show fun begins with a delicious luncheon featuring homemade chicken salad, creamy tomato basil soup, fruit salad, and a variety of delicious desserts made by Keeler. Immediately following the luncheon, the real fun begins — as models from the St. Francis Shop and from Holy Trinity Catholic School will show off some fine fashions. There will be surprises in store for everyone!

In addition, during the event, there will be a silent auction featuring a variety of beautiful new purses with surprise contents, all donated by parents at Holy Trinity Catholic School.

Tickets can be purchased at Holy Trinity Catholic School (call 352-9344) or you can purchase your tickets at the door on March 1. For more information, contact Rose Kluth at rose.kluth@k12.sd.us or 354-5352.
