Joy Prom 2020 - Volunteers for Dress Fitting

Dear friends,

We have some long faces at our house!  Out of an abundance of caution over the rapidly spreading Coronavirus, we have prayerfully decided to cancel the Dress Fitting and Joy Prom 2020.  The virus is spreading too easily and can be deadly for people who are medically fragile, such as many of our very special guests.  While there have not yet been any cases in the area, the odds are high that there may be cases hitting just as we would be gathering.  We consulted with our pastors, several medical personnel, nursing home and group home staff, and other friends, and there just isn’t a way we can adequately protect everyone at such a large gathering.  How can we possibly run the risk of spreading the virus further and possibly endangering the health and safety of our guests and volunteers?

At its heart, Joy Prom is not about having a big dance that’s lots of fun, although we hope and pray that it’s a beautiful day for everyone.  Our goal is that every guest, family member, guardian, friend, and volunteer feel the love of our church and our community, and especially of a God who loves them beyond measure.  May He protect you and give you peace as you rest in His loving arms during this difficult season.

Joyfully in His service,

Ronny and Anne Margaret Wright

P.S.  We’re moving aside all the boxes of Joy Prom decorations, donated dresses, paper goods, lights, etc., that currently adorn our house, to work on a little contingency plan!  Joy Prom guests are invited to stop by the ABF office between March 30th and April 3rd to pick up their “Taste of Joy Prom at Home” bags with a few little decorations and treats to help you host your own small Joy Prom at Home.  More details to come . . .
