Dads (including grandpas and uncles) and daughters (including nieces and granddaughters) can spend a fun-filled evening of quality time together. 

The night of activities includes square dancing, refreshments and goodies provided by Cold Stone Creamery. You will also receive a picture proof of the couple provided by Classic School Photography and you may purchase additional photo packages. Your young lady will receive a corsage.

The dance will be held at White Pines Middle School Cafeteria starting at 6:15 p.m. There are several dates to choose from: Jan. 28 or Jan. 30 for kindergarten through second-grade girls; Feb. 5 or 7 for third- and fourth-grade girls; and Feb. 12 for fifth- and sixth-grade girls. 

The cost per dad-daughter pair is $25 for residents and $40 for nonresidents. The registration deadline is one week prior to each nightly event. No registrations at the door on the day of the event.

Financial assistance is available through the Chris Christiansen Youth Scholarship Fund.

To register, call 616-850-5125 or go to Registrations will also be accepted at the program office located at 1415 Beechtree St., Grand Haven.

I saw an article on a town that was canceling their father-daughter dance because it excluded mothers.

How about a link to that article? Not saying it isn't possible, but I'd love to read up on the reasoning behind it.


You are some kind of wonder reader, it must be amazing to be you; but not amusing. I find it much easier to read left to right, and then down line by line; reading up is so very difficult for most of us normal individuals. Are you going to reiterate that stoner humor isn't something you get? Well I get you and I am amused; and that makes you...


Confused? Are you trying to hurt my wittle feelings with your acerbic wit?

I guess I did a poor job of making my request from the stoner point of view eh? I was actually looking for info on where in the country this took place and who the complainants were exactly. What kind of idiots would complain about mothers not being included in a Father/daughter valentine's day dance?

Actually I shouldn't have been so lazy and just did a Google search myself. I found this in 2 seconds. Now I know what kind of idiots would cancel the dance. It doesn't surprise me too much, but it does make me sad that this country has become this stupid. I took both my daughters to the dances here in Grand Haven as they grew up. We had a good time and made some memories. Glad I don't have to deal with school systems any longer.

thanks for the link, "Tom". That was silly.
