Missouri Girls Town Block Party August 2013
Missouri Girls Town recently held their first annual Block Party. The party featured a Chicago theme. The girls made decorations for the dining hall in the baseball theme with the Cubs and White Sox banners flying high in the rafters. The tables were decorated with handmade placemats that had both a GFWC and the Chicago theme.
The girls had game tables set up throughout the campus. Games such as plinko, the cakewalk, and ladder ball were enjoyed by all. There was even a dunking booth! There was plenty of Chicago style pizza and Chicago style hot dogs. The cheesecake was delightful and enjoyed by all. The Rec Center was decorated like a Chicago night club. A video highlighting the campus and workers at MGT was shown in the night club.
