The Kellyville Father-Daughter Dance took place on Saturday, February 15th from 6-9 p.m. in the Town Hall. There were decorations on the tables, a DJ (Carl Broam, who volunteered his time), and lots of food and punch in the kitchen. The sweet popcorn was especially good tasty. There was a pink balloon-shrouded arch for 8 X 10 color photos.
Among fancy-dressed attendees to the ball were Kayliana Hatfield (8 years old) and her Dad, Jimmy White. Grace Osborne (6) and her Dad, Eric, were looking fine. Bailey Tiner (aged 12), in her lovely dress and denim shrug, danced with her Dad, Dustin. The youngest dancer was Amiah Cook (2 years old), in a vision of red ruffles, who danced with her Uncles Bryce Murray and Ted Cook. Seven-and-a-half-year-old Averie Russell rocked a pair of grown-up high heels while proud Dad, Cody danced with her. Roy Miller in a cool blue tie watched as his daughter Alana learned a country line dance with a dozen other lovely young ladies. In a stole and red dress, “almost 13”-year-old Chelsea Barton danced with her father, Chad. Russell and Haylee Jones (5) enjoyed the treats, too. From early on, the Town Hall was packed with party-goers.
A smiling Jeff Dalton and his lovely daughter Mackinze (11) enjoyed this party and the Sapulpa Father-Daughter dance, too. She had on a chic black dress with her blond hair straight, and a week ago, she was in an emerald-green long formal with her hair piled on her head. He said he took his older daughter to a Father-Daughter Dance when she was 12, and she is in college now and still talks about it fondly. Some teenagers attended (dressed for school) but enjoyed the music and the antics of the younger girls who ran around in ball gowns and barefoot, laughing, talking, and dancing with each other as well as with their fathers.
Tonya Lee and Lisa Broam, with Kellyville Heritage Days Foundation, were on hand to orchestrate the event. Beverly Lucas, the Town Administrator helped out, too. At $15 a couple, the Kellyville Heritage Days Foundation made about $500 for their charitable works around Kellyville. Chair of the Foundation for the past five years, Vernon Chisum, said they helped around town, the elderly, disabled, and neighbors in need, whatever their needs were from yard work, fixing a car, to relocating after a fire.
The Foundation expects to continue this event next year since it was such a hit this year.
