The second annual Spring Fever Family Dance at 150 Mile Elementary School on Friday April 27 was a great success.

A total of 320 students, parents, family and friends danced the night away at this event organized by the 150 Mile House parent advisory council.

Door prizes included a new child’s mountain bike donated by Jason Skuratow Backhoe Service and a variety of gift baskets containing items donated by the students and packaged by the PAC.

There was also a used book sale with proceeds going to the school library fund and silent auction with many fabulous donations from the community.

The limbo contest was a big hit, as was a guest video appearance by Elmo.

150 Mile parents, administration, teachers (in school time), and students all pitched in to promote, organize, decorate, set up, run and attend this fun family event.

The PAC also extends thanks to sponsors About Face Photography, 150 Mile Tire and Service, Big O Tire, Debbie’s Dawgs and Dirt, Ducks Unlimited, Huckle Buckle After School Care, Jason Skuratow Backhoe Service, Marshall’s, Movies to Go, OT Timber Framing, Red Tomato Pies, Shoppers Drug Mart, Top Notch Log Construction, Valley Video and the Yellow Umbrella.http://raven.b-it.ca/portals/uploads/tribune/.DIR288/A25Sub150Dance213.jpg
