Speakeasy Fashion Inspiration

Who doesn’t want to get away?  To pause the world and enjoy an evening of elegance and fun.  Who doesn’t want to get thrown back in time, to a place where women began their independence, men were coming back from war and the history of the United States would be changed forever?  The Bonner Springs Rotary is giving you that chance.  On November 1, step back in time to the days of Speakeasies, flapper girls, and fedoras. great-gatsby-halloween-costume
