Donations of formal dresses and shoes for South Tahoe High School girls attending prom are requested for a dress exchange being held May 18 in teacher Bridey Heidel’s classroom.

The dress exchange is an opportunity for girls to find formal wear for the June 10 prom. A seamstress will be available while a stylist might be present to give styling advice, Heidel said.

Heidel already has 40 dresses but is looking for more.

“I’m trying to bill it as come and get a dress,” she said.

Donations can be dropped off at South Tahoe High School.

College to host ‘Star Trek’ experts

Donations of raffle prizes and refreshments are being sought for a Lake Tahoe Community College presentation on “Star Trek” by two noteworthy people: Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry, son of “Start Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry, and Roger Nygard, film maker and director of the two “Trekkies” documentaries.

Instructor Daryl Frazetti helped bring the two speakers to Lake Tahoe and believes it will augment the course he is teaching on the anthropology of “Star Trek” and shine a spotlight on the college.

The presentation is scheduled for June 9 at 5 p.m. in the college’s main dining hall. Speakers will begin the program at 5:30 p.m. Frazetti will discuss the cultural anthropology in “Star Trek and the subculture of fans.

Tickets go on sale May 15 in the college’s book store. Students have a $20 rate while nonstudents will be charged $25.

Anybody wishing to make donations can contact Frazetti at (775) 250-0428 or e-mail
