Spring Fantasy in Springfield

What better place for a Spring Fantasy event than Springfield, Massachusetts, U.S.A.?

The Springfield Quota club’s brunch and fashion show fund-raiser, called Spring Fantasy, provides fun, fellowship, AND profit for the club to support service efforts to help deaf and hearing-impaired persons in the community.

No fashion show would be complete without the bridal gown. Susan Bankoski, center, models the latest in bridal wear.

Ticket sales and program advertisements cover expenses and leave several thousand dollars for service—including an annual $1,000 scholarship for hearing-impaired students or students wishing to enter fields related to speech and hearing. The scholarship is named in honor of the late Arleen Miller, a 45-year Quota member and active volunteer in the Springfield club.

Other projects supported by the club include Alzheimer patient ID bracelets, mentoring Girl Scouts, and initiatives at area schools and day care centers.
