Bristol Ballet Presents Bows & Bow Ties
6th Annual Father Daughter Ball

Magic. Moments. Memories. And Twirling. Lots of Twirling.

Their first words. Their first steps. Their first break-up. It may sound cliché, but it all goes by so fast. Whether she’s 4 or 40, she’ll always be your little girl. You’ll always be the most important man in her life.

The Bristol Ballet’s 6th annual Father Daughter Ball, themed “Bows & Bow Ties,” promotes healthy father daughter relationships and creates a tradition of memories to last a lifetime.

Dads should bring their little sweethearts to the Bristol Train Station on Sunday, February 8, 2015, 2:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m., for sweets, treats, and dancing. From Sinatra to Taylor Swift, DJ Express will spin a variety of appropriate hits both generations will enjoy. Reservations are $10 per person, call 276-669-6051.

Show her Dad can be cool. Bust a move to the dance hits you rocked back in the day, maybe she’ll teach you The Dougie. YouTube videos help. A lot.

Dads and daughters will receive a free commemorate photo file from the event, courtesy of King College Digital Media Art & Design volunteers, and a treasured keepsake to take home.

Last year nearly 200 fathers and daughters made Bristol Ballet’s Father Daughter Ball such a success the organization is taking it to a new level. There are many sponsorship opportunities available to help add sparkle to this amazing family tradition.

ST. PAUL, Va. -- High school youth, teachers and educators are invited to participate in the Clinch River Youth Summit, Saturday, Feb. 28, at the Estonoa Learning Center in St. Paul from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

The summit will include presentations by representatives of local nonprofit organizations and government agencies involved in environmental conservation and improvement projects.

Two high school programs, Team Estonoa and Gate City High School, will offer presentations about their environmental education programs and outdoor classroom work.

Participants will also be invited to apply for mini-grants for student-led environmental projects, which will be highlighted at the Clinch River Valley Initiative’s Environmental Education Symposium May 9.

Keynote speaker for the summit will be Shane Barton, program coordinator at the University of Kentucky Appalachian Center. Barton is a regional planner by training and uses his experience and expertise to support regional initiatives in Central Appalachia. He holds a master’s degree in urban and regional planning from the L.

The summit will conclude with a tour of Wetlands Estonoa, a student-initiated, place-based, service learning project in St. Paul.
