REDMOND, OR -- It's time for Redmond dads and daughters to get ready to dance. After an overwhelming response last year, Redmond Rotary is again hosting the Daddy Daughter Dance, early next month. "Last year was our inaugural year," Event Chairwoman Lynn Evans says. "It was so popular in the community and did sell out, so it was an easy decision in terms of having it again this year."
Already, over half the available tickets have been reserved. The dance involves more than the well-known rotary. Redmond School Superintendent Mike McIntosh is also getting involved for his second year -- driving a horse-drawn carriage.
"He actually bought a larger wagon this year to pull, so that he could seat more dads and daughters one at a time," Evans says. "Last year the line got backlogged a little bit."
The Rotary got the idea from Pendleton, which hosts a similar dance. This year the dance is Candy Land themed. It takes place on February 7th, and is open for girls in kindergarten through the 8th grade -- and their dad or any male relative.
