Partnership in action Engaged With the help of many partners in the area, several county participants of the Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) were invited to a Dress for Success seminar. This event was held at the Ortonville New Life Community Baptist Church on Friday, May 21,1999. This project was sponsored by the Big Stone County Family Service Center, RSVP United, and the SW Private Industry Council in conjunc- tion with a grant received from the McKnight Foundation. Dress for Success focuses on building interview skills, self-esteem, and building the family unit. The day began with a session by Joan Hasslen on fashion accessories and wardrobe building. This session stressed selecting an interview and work wardrobe around neutral colors and adding color and accessories to expand your wardrobe. The partici- pants then selected an appropriate interviewing outfit and worked on dif- ferent looks. The participants were next treated to a haircut and quick style by Sara Vaala, for the Mirror Image in Madison. She was assisted by Mary Lou Olson, RSVP Volunteer from Ortonville. During lunch, Jean Kvols, Educator, Minnesota Extension Service, provided a lesson on eating etiquette and a laundry tip session. After lunch, Julie Danielson, Registered Dietician, discussed quick and nutritious meals and packing bag lunches. Karin Mack, Director, Retired Senior Volunteers United, gave some quick sewing tips. The participants then participated in a makeover by Julie Danielson, Mary Kay Consultant. They learned acceptable interview and work makeup skills and tips. Her assistants were Patricia Danielson and Tami Lundberg. The day ended with Andrea Mills, McKnight Project Coordinator, dis- cussing feeling good about yourself (self-esteem). Door prizes were given to the participants. Other volunteers included Financial Workers from Big Stone County Family Service Center, Lii Hults, RSVP Volunteer, Becky Wollschlager, Welfare-to-Work Coordinator, and Private Industry Council Staff, Montevideo. New Life Community Baptist Church gracious- ly donated their church facilities for this session. The McKnight Partnership Project is working in Big Stone and surround- ing counties in Minnesota to pull together agencies in hopes to better serve the public and develop creative alternatives and projects to help assist those on public assistance.
