Organizers of this year’s Daddy Daughter Dance at Valley View Elementary School welcomed their largest crowd yet to the highly anticipated annual event.
Guests dined on chicken marsala, chicken without sauce, baked mostaccioli, buttered penne pasta with marinara on the side, dinner salad and garlic bread.
Colorful jelly bracelets were distributed down the center of the tables and the girls had fun collecting them and wearing them home. Centerpieces were also a treasured memento of the evening and, at the end of the evening on their way out of the dance, each girl was handed a candy bracelet.
This year, organizers set out a dessert display on two outside lunch tables. The girls were overhead commenting that it was “a smorgasbord of desserts,” obviously pleased with the change. The dads also appeared to like the change of location for dessert as it provided the chance for dads and daughters to sit at the lunch tables to enjoy their treats, while others decided to dance in the auditorium.
