Sheboygan Falls High School had to reschedule their prom because of the snow storm last Friday and nearby small businesses took a hit.

Small businesses like Rick's House of Flowers and Shear America Salon felt the ripple effect of the canceled event. 

Owner Rick Henschel has volunteered to re-make nearly 100 corsage and boutonnieres for the dance. He says taking that hit did hurt at first, but it is his gift to Sheboygan Falls. 

Leah Weckwerth, hair stylist at Shear America, says it was a smooth enough transition from one Friday to the next. She took a lot of phone calls from panicked parents.  But reassured them it would all work out. 

Sheboygan Falls High School prom is Saturday.
