Students from the Edward Milne Community School 2018 graduating class are practising their modeling poses and putting their dancing shoes on.

The group of 30 students began preparing for the annual grad fashion show in mid January and the students are eagerly awaiting their performance.

This is an excellent way for members of the community to come and show their support for the local sponsoring businesses and this year’s graduating class, with funds raised going towards June graduation fees.

This energy packed, entertaining show was started by students 23 years ago. It features casual and athletic clothing, as well as, formal prom dresses and tuxedos. There will also be a concession, door prizes and a chance for some audience participation.

In addition, the EMCS Grad 2018 silent auction is on Facebook and will continue until the evening of the performance. Donations are still being accepted.

The show starts at 7 p.m. on March 14. Past shows have sold out and a second show may be added for March 15, depending on demand.

Tickets are available for $10 at Shoppers Drug Mart and the EMCS school office.
