The Deubrook Booster Club is announcing our 9th Annual Prom Dress Resale.  We are not only open two weekends but we have decided to add a Wednesday night to our sales dates.  Weekends are very busy for many people and we hope a Wednesday will provide another opportunity for shoppers.  Our 2018 sales dates are February 3, 4, 7, and 10 and will be held again at McKnight Community Hall on Main Street in White, SD. We have fourteen dressing rooms so we are equipped for busy shopping times.  We fully expect to have 500+ dresses on the sale again this year so there is something for everyone.  While our main focus is on prom dresses, we already have a large selection of short dresses for all occasions.  There is also a lot of information and pictures available on our Deubrook Prom Dress Resale Facebook page.  https://www.facebook.com/DHSPromDressResale/ https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Ge2qN1zS5_ZsdoVfV6QZ4ZGkSE-ud1yK/view?usp=sharing
