Fashion in Monmouth

Since day one of living in Monmouth, Dorothy has been an active participant in the community. On March 19th, 1985, Dorothy participated in a fashion show for the VFW. Many merchants in the Monmouth Community participated in the fashion show. These merchants included The Model/Her Closet, Phone Set Shop, The Clothesline, Dotties Corner, Glendoras, Kids Korner, Circle C, Fabric Center, Bowmans and Bowman-Switzer. These merchants brought in their clothes for the models to wear. Dorothy walked the runway in an outfit from the Clothesline to be featured in the Business and Professional Women's style. Dorothy was asked to do the show by Security Savings, where she was and is employed. Dorothy also was featured in the Daily Review Atlas as bringing the Tartan or Plaid Monmouth College fashion into the community of Monmouth. As most of us know in the Monmouth Community, the college mascot is the Fighting Scot, along with that the Monmouth College has a pipe band that dresses in traditional Scotsman clothing. Since Dorothy is a Monmouth College graduate she was the perfect person to show off the style. As much as this page is about fashion, it is also more about how much Dorothy is involved in the community. As simple as a fashion show or a news article about bringing plaid into the community is, it shows how dedicated and involved Dorothy is in the community. For the most part, if asked, Dorothy will go to any lengths to serve the Monmouth Community.
