A few weeks ago a bunch of local Dads let their daughters shine at the Ties and Tiaras Father Daughter dance put on by our Susanville Police Explorers. Isn’t that just like dads? Always willing to sit back and let the rest of the family take the spotlight.
Susanville Police Officer Terra Avilla moved here from Reno 5 years ago. She noticed we didn’t have any such event and thought it would be a great fundraiser for the Explorers. Since it was the first year they chose a small venue, the Senior Center, hoping to sell 50 tickets. And they did. In the first day!
Terra said she pictured the little girls dancing in the middle of the room and the dads on the sidelines. But these dads showed up, dressed up, bought corsages, hula hooped, danced and most even took their little dates to dinner first.
The Explorers are a great bunch of kids learning all about law enforcement and our local dads set a strong example at this event. They plan on holding a Mother Son dance in the Fall and Father Daughter will definitely be back in the Spring! I urge you to go view the videos on the Explorers Facebook page, guaranteed to bring a smile to your face!
Some of the pictures are a little blurry but the joy expressed is crystal clear. Happy Father’s Day!
