Hey ladies, do you have a lonely dress taking up space in your closet? Don't let that dress go to waste! Bring it to the Dress Exchange!
Green Team is collecting any and all dresses of dress-ups past. If you have a dress you no longer want, say, from previous proms, homecomings, or banquets, then bring it by Ms. Keo's room, K-204, so we can find it a new home! Likewise, if you're looking for a dress for prom or banquet, but you don't want to drop the money on yet another dress, come shopping in K204!
