Museum’s Daddy-Daughter Dance returns

Jan 3, 2012

COMMERCE -  Plans for the annual Daddy-Daughter Dance have begun. The event will be Saturday, February 4 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. Tickets go on sale at the beginning of January.

Submitted to KETR:

Discounted tickets of $25 are offered until January 17. Tickets increase to $30 for a young lady and her dad, granddaddy, uncle, or brother on January 18. On the day of the Daddy Daughter Dance tickets are $35.

Chairing this year’s event is Lisa Arnold. Lisa has been involved in all three of the previous Daddy Daughter Dances. Her experience made her an obvious choice for the 2012 event. Lisa is an ex officio Board Member of the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum representing the Commerce Chamber of Commerce. Her two daughters, Jacie, a junior at Commerce High School, and Riley, a fifth grade student at AC Williams, have also been involved in previous Daddy-Daughter Dances. They are sure to have suggestions for their mom.

“This year’s Daddy-Daughter Dance promises to be the best yet. We have learned from each year’s event. I know what it has meant for my own daughters, and I am excited to be a part of this event. It offers so much to the young ladies in the area.” said Lisa Arnold.

Also returning with this year’s Daddy-Daughter Dance is disc jockey Nathan Venable. The experience of having been the disc jockey at last year’s event gives Nathan an opportunity to play music this year that he saw dads and daughters enjoy. He plans to tweak his selections, but the music should be even more “daddy friendly” this year.

“On the Saturday of last year’s dance we were shoveling snow off the sidewalks, but the dance did go on. We were glad to see the temperatures rise above freezing about mid-afternoon,” stated Sharline Freeman, Executive Director of the Museum. “After last year’s snow and ice storm the week of the dance, we are looking for the best of February weather this year.”
