GREEN — About 200 parents and children had a sweet time together at the 11th annual Parent/Child Valentine Social Feb. 2.

The event, sponsored by the Green Parks & Recreation Division, took place in the Green High School auxiliary gym and featured a dinner by Charlie Brown Catering, crafts, dancing and contests.

Shown at right top, children twist and turn in a hula hoop contest at the social. Adults also had a chance to compete in the contest.

Judi and Joel Horak, of Top Down DJ, provided dance music for the social.

Party-goers also were able to have their caricatures drawn and win door prizes donated by area businesses, according to Kim Goodhart, special events program coordinator for the Parks & Recreation Division. A Tender Touch sold flowers, and Curtis Photography Inc. took photos at the event.

“This was a quality program meant to bring families together,” said Goodhart.
