Let's Have the World's Biggest Toga Party!

by Pam Hartmann

To do that, we need to get as many Grease Festival-Goers dressed in Togas as possible.   Let's face it, wearing Togas is FUN and it's hard to not have a good time when you're wearing one!  To that end, Spirit of Athens will have available Toga-to-Go kits for attendees that wander in wearing civilian clothes, look around and start hankering for their very own toga!  We need your help to make this happen.  Just  clean out all that old fabric you have laying around and donate it to the cause- any color/pattern will work.  We could also use any rope belts yardage you happen to have.  With your help, we CAN have the World's Biggest Toga Party!

Participants of the 2012 Toga Contest

A few tips to keep in mind when digging through your old fabric:
No small scraps, please- each toga will need 3.5 - 4 yards fabric for adult sizes and 2 - 2.5 for child sizes.

Any color / pattern is welcome, but be practical- no sheers, velvets... Cotton and cotton blends will work best.  Think-  sheet!

If you have flat sheets (new) you would like to donate, that will work, too. Any type of  decorative rope that can be used as a belt would also be welcome as well as old broaches, or pins.

Please drop off at U.G. White General Mercantile at 101 North Jefferson Street in downtown Athens.  Store hours are Monday-Wednesday 9am-6pm & Thursday-Saturday 9am-8pm.  For more information, call 315-561-9932.
