Elvis was "in the house", dancing his blue suede shoes off during Woodland’s Fifth Annual Father/Daughter Ball held at the Primary School Gymnasium, Saturday, February 21st . Many portraits of the Fathers (and Elvis) were taken during the evening by local photographer Mike Schultz. For portrait pick up dates and times, please go to www.woodland.grace.com for information.
Girls of all ages sporting anywhere from poodle skirts with pony tails to fancy prom dresses shared a special evening with their Father/Father Figures set to a "Rock Around the Clock" Fabulous Fifties theme. Attendance this year was 947 including volunteers from Grace Community Church who sponsored the Ball as a non-profit Community Service event. Ball coordinators commented, "Our vision is that the Father/Daughter Ball provides an opportunity to create lifelong memories and build relationships."
Plans are in the works for next years Ball. Grace respectfully asks curious mothers not to stay and watch the Ball because it would be sad to have to turn away a Father/Daughter couple all dressed up. Grace welcomes any comments or suggestions regarding this years or next years Father/Daughter Ball at info@WoodlandGrace.com.
Setting the scene when guests arrived was a 1950 Chevy Fleet line car on display near the gym entrance and a 1948 Indian motorcycle as the focal point of the stage decorations. A few attendees were hoping these two items would be included in the 36 door prize drawings that were held during the evening. The Chevy’s owner attends Grace Community Church and the Indian motorcycle was provided for display by the Christian motorcycle club of Vancouver.
One highlight of the evening was the door prize of a Wii game system donated by Dr. Jeffrey S. Tack and Woodland Eye and Vision. Door prizes were given away free and donated by 31 local businesses. Volunteers from Grace hosted the event as well as provided the cookies and the fruit and veggie trays which were donated. Chips and beverages were also provided for guests. Admission charge was $5 per Father/Father figure and all Daughters free.
