Ann Cornell's Fashion & Design class at Pitman High made and then donated 29 spring dresses to The Salvation Army and a few other charities. The Kiwanis Club purchased cloth from Cloth & Quilts in Turlock at a discount and then donated the material to the Pitman students for dress making.  The dresses are made twice a year, usually in the winter and spring seasons.  The Pitman High class and the Kiwanis Club have been teaming up to make the dress for about 12 years now.
