Prom Tux Opportunity
Gentlemen who missed the tux fitting opportunity on 4/7 but are still interested in getting fitted for a tux, will be happy to know that Ruby with Bridal Boutique will still honor the specials that she had at HHS for our students that go over to her shop in Winona. Reasons you should rent your tux from Bridal Boutique: 1) It is delivered to school so you don’t have to go pick it up. 2) The APP committee will return it to Winona for you. 3) You get a discount on your tux and it is a fundraiser for the After Prom Party so you benefit! Questions? Contact Robin Thesing at robinthesing@hotmail.com
