December dance - December 17, 2016

Ages 8 to 13

Updated Friday January 13, 2017 by Stanley Park.


The Optimist Club of Stanley Park began holding Saturday night dances in 2011 and offered them - during the school year - on a regular monthly basis right through to December, 2016.  Children aged 8 to 13 (inclusive) were welcome to come out and join the dance parties - September through April.

Unfortunately, the number of participants dwindled over the 2016 events to the point that the Club decided to suspend the program and utilize its resources in other youth projects.


Music and games were well looked after by  Car Toons  Mobile DJ Service  (Tom Panchaud). We thank him for all the effort he put in to ensuring the parties were just that - all fun!

Note: All participants had to be picked up by a parent/guardian.  No one was allowed to leave the dance without an approved escort home.


We celebrated the holiday season!
