LOCK HAVEN - Remember your high school prom days - shopping for a dress, ordering flowers, decorating the gymnasium, getting your hair done and then walking into the dance on the arm of your favorite beau.
Oh, it seems like only yesterday.
There was a lot of excitement in the days and months leading up to the prom, and that excitement has surfaced again for a group of local ladies planning the first-ever Clinton County Mom Prom.
They've been working for almost a year on the event and the excitement seems to build weekly as details fall in place and the date - April 21 - gets closer.
Not only does the event promise a great time, but it's also benefiting a great cause - the Clinton County Housing Coalition's Life Center. The center, at 331 E. Main St., will open soon to serve the local homeless.
It sounds like the Mom Prom will be a great "girls night out" with plenty of entertainment - both music and comedy.
No, there won't be a comedian there, but there's sure to be lots of giggles and laughs as women make their grand entrance into the ballroom at Haywood's On the Green, Mill Hall, in prom attire.
There also will be appetizers, dancing, karaoke, prizes and a silent auction.
And no guys.
Women don't have to be moms to attend; they just have to be a female age 21 or older.
Only 200 tickets will be sold.
Tickets are available by calling Women of Clinton County chairwoman Lori Gunsallus at 932-0877 or Tracie Christensen at 447-0467.
