We’re celebrating the 1920s and the glorious movies that made it a joy to spend Saturday afternoon at the matinee with your friends! Come have your hair styled like Mary Pickford’s, taste Douglas Fairbanks Jr.’s lemon pie and Gloria Swanson’s fudge, make a movie craft, and doll yourself up like Clara Bow. You’re the “It” girl for the day and who knows, you just might want to take in a movie after the party! This year, you’ll be able to view original 1920s frocks from a private collector and from Johnson County Community College’s Fashion Merchandising vast collection. This year, we’re awarding awesome prizes for the best 1920s – based attire!

This might be a fun way to talk about fashion for My Style, or beauty with Best Me I Can Be and Daughter of the King, but best of all, it’s a great way for a mom and a daughter to have some fun together!
Since the 1970s, the percentage of overweight children has tripled in the United States. Today, one out of five children is overweight or obese in our community. Recent studies have found that students with healthier lifestyles actually perform better academically. The Kansas City Chiefs have created a unique way of educating young people about the positive benefits of leading healthier, happier lives to help reverse these trends.
