On May 2, a large audience of students, faculty and staff and area residents came out to participate in the second annual fashion show, "Traditional Fashions from Africa," sponsored by the African Club of Eastern (ACE). The fashion show, held in the Student Center Theatre, featured West African traditional wear, modeled by a cross-section of Eastern's students. The New Element step dancers opened the show, while the award-winning Phantoms entertained the audience with songsThumbnail image for Africa club Officers.JPG appropriate to the occasion. The ACE presented a plaque to former student Vivian Ankrah, its first president, in appreciation of her dedicated service to the founding of the organization. At the end of the show, attendees were treated to exotic African foods.
