Woman’s Club of Safford holds Sweethearts Valentine’s Dance
SAFFORD, ARIZ.—FEBRUARY 18, 2009—The Woman’s Club of Safford held the Sweethearts Valentine’s Dance especially for the Dan Hinton School, the Blake Foundation and the Safford Self-Contained Students on Feb. 11.
The clubhouse was rocking to the sounds of mix master Jerry Thompson, while Brenda Alvarez of Pix2 Perfection took individual portraits beneath a Valentine-decorated arch for special keepsakes. Club member Jacque Attaway of Graham County Florist and China Shop donated gift certificates for their professional services. From 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., fellowship, food and dancing feet were the order of the day for more than 85 guests, teachers, parents, friends and club volunteers. The dance had been the main topic of conversation for two weeks for excited participants, and the memories will be treasured by all who attended. The special event began when the front doors opened and guests received corsages and boutonnières created by Amber Cassman and Sharon Ford.
They entered the clubhouse’s main room and were warmly greeted by Special Guest Shannon “Sissy” Hancock, who detailed all the fun organized.
In between visiting, dancing and eating the delectable treats and drinks sponsored in part by McDonald’s, club volunteers, Marge Schade and Pepsi, guests were escorted to the portrait studio set up in the Library Room. Event organizer Becky Johnson donated farewell treat bags and Valentine bears given to each guest with a hug and a warm smile. Gift certificates from McDonald’s included in the take-home bags will keep the smiles and memories fresh while the inspired volunteers begin to plan for next year’s Sweethearts Dance.
A heartfelt “thank you” is extended to all the guests, parents, chaperones, generous donors, volunteers, photographers and the Woman’s Club of Safford members who created a very special event for all those in attendance.
Be sure to mark your 2010 calendars now for a special February treat and join in the fun. For membership information to the Woman’s Club contact Becky Johnson at 928-965-1887.
