Big Thanks for Father Daughter Dance Help!

father daughter picIsn’t it funny how sometimes an event can go so smoothly and without a hitch, then the following year the exact same event can have one issue after another? Last year’s Father Daughter Dance went so well, we were bound to have some issues this year. Starting off with problems with the sound system and culminating with the fire alarms going off, it was an eventful dance. We appreciate everyone’s patience with us this year; but the kids seemed to have a great time and that is what’s important, right?

We had a lot of help on this event this year. As always, thank you to the Fun Committee for the planning and advance ticket sales. We had a great crew helping to set up the event: Curtis Hartman, Carl Brown, Vickie Hawkes, Tammie Jinkerson-Prosch and her son RJ, Ed Mueller and Stephanie Gilbert.father daughter pics

Dave Jones gets a big round of applause for bringing in the fog machine and for renting and hanging the disco lights which added so much to the ambiance.

During the event Kevin Bayes was so helpful running the music and helping to solve distorted sound issue. Tandi Arevalo and Stephanie Gilbert did a great job on the front door of the event and are greatly appreciated.

Thank you to the fathers who stayed after the event was over to help break down tables and chairs and to Ed Mueller, Dave Jones, and Tammie Jinkerson-Prosch who stayed and cleaned up until the last drop of pink lemonade was mopped up!

It was a group effort and although I was discouraged by the challenges the event faced, when I saw all the happy faces in Chardy Bayes’ pictures, it was all worth it!

Don’t forget to come out this Friday to the Spring Farm Filter Sale Customer Appreciation Lunch at G&R Auto Parts. I’ll be there serving with my “Family” hat on rather than my “Chamber Lady” hat. Come out and say “Hi”.
