Letter: Thanks for help with daddy-daughter dance

To the editor:

Brown County Parks and Recreation would like to thank all of the daddies and daughters that attended our 4th annual 2018 Daddy/Daughter Valentine’s Dance. This year’s dance, which took place Feb. 9 at The Seasons Lodge, was a huge success with over 200 participants. The fun-filled evening included a variety of games, crafts, and of course, dancing.

Without the help and support of all our volunteers as well as our sponsors, the success of this event would not have been possible. I’d like to give a super big shout-out to Laura Boyer. Laura has partnered with us on this event since day one and has played a crucial role in helping to make this event happen. Other key players we would like to recognize include Clyde Boyer, Melissa Taylor, Aleigha Taylor, Ron Hines, Nick Branson, Beth Branson, Ellen Branson, Kathy Grimes-Smith, Lory Winford, Cindy Stinson, Sara Hugushoff, Evie Owens, Mike Steiglitz, Taeha Steiglitz, Jennifer Root, Guy Knaus, Amy Imming, Calla Imming, Richard Imming, Amanda Grider, Ady Grider, Emily Rankin, Mandy Simmons, Roberta Simmons, Casey Simmons, Debbi Voils, Andy Rudd, Marilyn Rudd, Michelle Roberson and Evan Roberson.

Additionally, special thanks to our sponsors, McDonald’s, Creekside Retreat, The Seasons Lodge, the Brown County Democrat, Jennie Root Photography, Sweetea’s Tea Shop, Nashville Spice Company, HFI, and the Brown County Glass Slipper event. We could not have done this without you. Thanks again for all your help, and we look forward to seeing you all next year.
