  • Evening of Style

    The Evening of Style was held Thursday, February 9 at St. Boniface Church. WIth more tables than ever participating, it was a fun-filled night of fashion, food and fellowship. Tables of eight enjoyed a catered meal, dessert auction and a style show modeled by our own DCHS students. Each group used their creativity to decorate their table with a theme and included everything from the Las Vegas strip to the great outdoors. Thanks to everyone who made the night an amazing success.
