6. Prom season is upon us again here in East Texas. For most girls, this season is all about finding the right dress, shoes, jewelry and date for the occasion. Shopping for "the" right dress is fun, but it can get expensive fast!
Zonta Club of Longview is here to help. The group is gearing up for their sixth annual prom boutique this Saturday in Longview. Each year, Zonta gives away formal dresses to teen girls from across East Texas. What's the catch? There's not one.

7. Don't forget that you can submit your group's events to our shiny new events calendar! Whether it's a concert, fundraiser, booksigning, community picnic, or other event that is open to the public, you can submit it to us at events.kltv.com.

We hope you'll join us on  our livestream on KLTV.com if you're not near your tv today at 4, 5 and 6 for the best news and weather in East Texas!

We'll see you soon!
