Another meeting will be tonight at 7 p.m. in the dining room of the Memorial Building for other girls who want to participate in the program. This is the 49th year for the program in Knox County that was started by the Jaycees club.

Rehearsals start Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Memorial Theater and will last until 5 p.m. The Sunday rehearsals will last five weeks. The week before the program will see rehearsals each night. The two-night program is Nov. 16 and 17. Curtain time both nights is 8 p.m.

Two girls will be chosen, one from Mount Vernon High School as Central Knox County DYW and the other from one of the Knox County high schools, as Greater Knox County DYW, to participate in the 2013 Ohio Distinguished Young Women program in Mount Vernon in February.

Stepping down are the 2011 Central Knox County DYW Lauren Butterfield from Mount Vernon High School and Greater Knox County DYW Kathryn Hebenthal, Centerburg High School.
