Summit County Pre-school barn dance kicks off May 3

FRISCO – The Summit County Pre-school will hold its 14th annual Barn Dance from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. May 3 at the Summit County Community and Senior Center near Frisco.

The event will have a Wild West Barn theme, complete with county western guitar, boot-scootin’ music, cowboy roundup games, a silent auction and enough western vittles to feed a large hometown crowd.

The Barn Dance, a locals’ favorite, is a benefit for the Summit County Preschool, located on Main Street in Frisco.

Summit County Pre-school has been providing child care in Summit County for 28 years.

Robert F. Lau of LPL Financial will play host to the event.

Sponsored by local businesses, the Barn Dance is a fun-filled family event. There will be a number of cowboy roundup games, sack races for the children and a kiddie corral with wild bucking bronco rocking horses for the little buckaroos in your family. Weather permitting, pony rides and a petting area will be offered.

There will be a special Mother’s Day area where children can make or purchase a gift.

A silent auction includes a Copper Mountain season ski pass, lunch at the Sunshine Cafe, dinner at the Hearthstone, a plush green chair from Mountain Comfort Furnishings, decorations for the home and gift certificates galore.

The Summit Country Dance group will be performing as well as giving dancing lessons. Students also will sing and perform a little play.

Tickets can be purchased at the door: $8 for adults (includes all games), $5 for 3-12 and free for under 2. Ticket prices include lunch of hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad and coleslaw, other side dishes, drinks and desserts.

For more information, call the preschool at (970) 668-5508.
