With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, a lot of our local merchants are gearing up to help you show your sweetheart some Local Love! Nothing says “eh, you’ll do” like a generic ho-hum Walmart gift! Show the love of your life that you love both them AND our local community with flowers from Flowers by Vikki, sweets from Sweet Creations, a bottle of their favorite spirits from Sullivan’s Liquor or Barnes Heartland Liquor, a card from Kay’s, or a lovely gift for him or her from a wide range of our retail shops. Don’t forget that gift certificates make great gifts as well.
Speaking of love, my father used to tell me that every girl’s first love is her Daddy. Dad’s make plans now to take your favorite princess to the Father-Daughter Dance. Last year’s inaugural event was quite a hit.
I was especially touched by the gentleman who told me he used this dance to teach his daughter what to expect from future boys who might want to take her on a date. He came to the door, brought her a corsage, helped her on with her coat, and held the doors open for her during the evening. It was so sweet.
Tickets are $7 a piece or $20 for a family ticket for those fathers with a house full of princesses. Get them at the Chamber office or from Fun Committee members.
