Heavy snow doesn’t stop these girls from having a ball

By Ian Perrotta

Snowflakes were falling last Saturday night (Feb. 5), but that didn’t cause the young girls of Hamtramck to flake out. Despite some terrible weather, the community’s fifth annual Daddy-Daughter Dance was the most successful yet.

The dance, which was sponsored by the Hamtramck Recreation Department, was attended by over 70 people. With a “Princess Party” theme, the event offered the girls and their fathers a chance to enjoy a buffet-style meal, crafts, a raffle and lots of dancing. The girls also received a flower and a goody bag.

Recreation Coordinator Theresa Yorke said that she was very pleased with this year’s turnout. Saying that the Daddy-Daughter Dance is always a dress-to-impress event, she noted that this year – with some girls decked-out in princess gowns and their fathers in matching dress clothes – did not disappoint.

“I used to attend the City of Wayne Daddy-Daughter Dance with my father when I was young, and it is one of my favorite childhood memories,” says Yorke. “My hope is that these girls will feel the same one day.”
