Approximately 320 students, friends and family enjoyed the seventh annual Spring Fever Family Dance at 150 Mile Elementary on Friday, April 24.

It was a fun-filled night of dancing, visiting, limbo, prizes, silent auction, concession and raffle draws.

The event was organized by the parent advisory council and made possible because of the outstanding support of parents, students, teachers, administration and local business.

One mountain bike, donated by Skuratow Backhoe Service and a four-person helicopter tour, donated by Highland Helicopters, were raffled off to the delight of the children.

A huge thank you goes out to all the generous support from community businesses that included:  Pioneer Log Homes, Shoppers Drug Mart, 150 Mile Service Centre, Red Shred’s, Jason Skuratow Backhoe Service, Christianson Landscaping, Dollar Dollar, Natalie Ohlhauser, Rusty Bucket, Colleen Patenaude, Weed Free Lawns, Staples, Subway, Dairy Queen, Alexanders, Red Tomato Pies, Finning, Eli Bergen, Fooks Family, Realm of Toys, The Yellow Umbrella, Huckle Buckle Daycare, Inland Kenworth, Barking Spider, Concrete Fitness, Alexander Clothing Jewellery and Gifts, Highland Helicopters, and the Rusty Bucket.

Huge thanks also to DJ Amanda who volunteered her equipment and services to make the night extra special.

Although this event is an important fundraiser for PAC sponsored events at 150 Mile Elementary, the primary intention of the Spring Fever Family Dance has always been to promote a sense of belonging for both students and parents.

Judging by the smiles, it appeared to be a great success.
