Mother & Son Dance

By Joyce Ervin

The annual Mother and Son Dance hosted by Milan Parks and Recreation was another sell-out.  The popular event sported a western theme.
Cowboys with 10-gallon hats, bandanas, checkered shirts, cowboy boots, vests, western coats and sheriff badges arrived with their mothers, many of whom arrived in western attire, played games, had snacks and posed for a professional photograph they took home provided by Ruby Photo Booth.
Music was provided by disc-jockey, Max Hall, who was occasionally taking requests.  The games were supervised by Milan Youth Council members, Julia Woelmer and Grace and Lauren Gyolai, who each dedicate 20 hours to community service each month.
Prizes of bead bracelets, stickers and temporary tattoos were awarded to those that knocked down stacked up cans with a baseball, successfully tossed plastic worms into a cowboy boot or lassoed a wooden horse with a hula hoop.
The dance floor was a busy place.  Some little ranchers danced with their mothers, others danced in a group.  There was a lot of activity with all those little boys in the room.
Each cowboy took home a Fidget Spinner and lucky ranchers that found a number on the sheriff badge they were given at the door took home a $10 McDonald’s food card.
Parks and recreation director, Ellen Bell, said it is always a fun evening and great to see so many dressed in costume.
