Momorable moments at the Daddy-Daughter Dance

From: http://www.eastgr.org

Put on your dancing shoes and enjoy a night out with your daughter at the annual Daddy Daughter Dance on Tuesday, February 1st from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Middle School. Girls in grades Y5's through 8th grade are invited to bring their favorite adult date (dad, grandpa, uncle or special friend) to this semi-formal event. The evening includes your daughter's choice of corsage, DJ dancing, refreshments, and a keepsake photograph to remember your evening.

And, to keep things interesting, there is a Crazy Tie Contest for the men. Show up wearing your outrageous tie and let our judges determine if your neck has what it takes to earn the title "Craziest Tie in East Grand Rapids!"

The cost is $41 per couple for residents ($56 for non-residents) and $29 for each additional daughter ($39 for non residents). Sign up by Friday, January 21 and receive a $10.00 discount.
