The Alice Walker Dress Shop in Carleton Place held their annual Christmas Fashion Show at Carambeck School November 12th in 1974. The show was held on behalf of A.R.C. Industries to help in the operation of their sheltered workshop. Ticket sales benefited them over $200 from the show. There was an excellent turnout despite the heavy rains, and over 90 outfits were modeled.

There were 12 girls from Almonte and Carleton Place  that modeled:
