The Brookings Emblem Club 265 held a luncheon and fashion show this past Saturday to raise money for the various charitable causes the club supports.

The luncheon included door prizes and raffles, and afforded members an opportunity to enjoy each other's company and the various fashions from Chere's Boutique in Crescent City that Emblem Club members modeled.

Nadine Powers said the money raised would go to many different charities, among them the Oasis Shelter Home in Gold Beach, the Outreach Gospel Mission in Harbor, scholarships, drug awareness, the Red Shirts, literacy initiatives, and Christmas baskets for the needy.

"It's a great opportunity to meet new people and let them know we are very much a part of the community," Powers said.

Terry Clawson, Dorothy Deck, Margo Hanscam, AnnEtta Petruzzi, Rosalie Walker and Sherry Singer modeled clothing during the fashion show, and guardsmen from U.S. Coast Guard Station Chetco River presented the colors and assisted in handing out prizes.

"We try to do our good deeds for the community," said Virginia Frizzle, president of the Emblem Club. "This is one of our big moneymakers for all of our special projects."
