Lincoln City Parks and Recreation is holding two special events this month to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day Essay Contest
Youngsters in grades 1 through 5 are invited to write a short essay about their favorite person or pet in the annual Valentine Essay Contest. It can be mom, dad, brother, sister, grandma, grandpa, best friend or Fido!
Prizes will be awarded for first and second places in each grade during a ceremony set for 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb 14 in the Lincoln City Council Chambers at City Hall. Special guest judges this year are members of the Lincoln City Senior Center Short Story club.
Registration forms are available at all north county schools and the Lincoln City Community Center. For an electronic entry form e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 541-994-2131.
Life-long memories are made during the annual Daddy-Daughter Dance, a magical evening for little girls and the special men in their lives. This event takes place at the Lincoln City Community Center and is open to young ladies in grades K-6 and their dads or father figures (moms and sons are welcome, too!).
The theme this year is a Hawaiian Luau and everyone is invited to wear their island best. Fresh Jive Sound will play music for dancing, and light snacks will be provided along with free keepsake photos for all attendees.
The cost is $20 per couple, and $10 for each additional daughter/son. Pre-registration is suggested by stopping by the Community Center at 2150 NE Oar Place or calling 541-994-2131.
