North Salem’s K-6 girls “lit up the night” at dance hosted by the Girl Scouts
Over one hundred girls in grades K-6 and their special guests danced the night away on Friday, June 10 at the North Salem Girl Scout’s “Light Up the Night” dance, held at John F. Kennedy Catholic prep school in Somers.
The dance, which had previously been held in winter as a ‘snowflake ball’ for girls in grades K-5, was moved to spring and opened up to girls in 6th grade due to pandemic-related disruptions and cancellations.
Martina Henry, a North Salem resident who organized the dance along with 6th grade cadette troupe 02950 and their moms, said the event provided an opportunity for girls to enjoy a memorable night out with their friends and loved ones while also raising money for the North Salem Girl Scout Community Fund. “It was wonderful to see so many local girls and guests on the dance floor together! COVID hurt this beautiful tradition last year and we were eager to squeeze it in this year even though it was late.”
Henry thanked all of the local vendors who helped to make the event a success, including Kennedy Catholic for providing the venue, FunZone Inflatables, Heart2Table Events, Forget Me Not Cupcakes, A Perfect Blend Entertainment, DJ Joseph Carricato and photographer Benjamin Allen of HudValley Photo.
“We also greatly appreciate the seven volunteers from 7th grade cadette troupe 02676 and Meghan Ledley, a 10th grade Girl Scout senior in troupe 02024,” Henry said, adding, “we hope to see more girls and their guests next year!”
