It was a picture perfect Saturday September 13th, when the Littleton scavenger hunt kicked off. Lively tunes were tinkling in front of Town hall thanks to the Rooting Tooting Dixieland Band. At an hour to noon, Robyn & Bill from Adventures in Dance waltzed onto this historic scene. In Victorian garb, they waltzed, fox-trotted and quickstepped in front of Old Town Hall. As they caught their breath they talked to interested sleuth’s looking for clues in this fun downtown event.

Snow Ball a Blast!

Snow Ball a Blast!

As the sub zero winds blew, happy dancers gathered for the Adventures in Dance Snow ball. At 5pm team Craig and team Holly warmed up to meed head to heal in the first team match. Judging these single dance events was Littleton independent reported Jennifer Smith. The rules were simple, dance well and bribe the judge. You could win on either category. Dancers met as the DJ announced take your places, and danced through the smooth, latin and rhythm dances. When the dust settled, Jennifer drew up to the microphone with the results. She had been bribed with coffee, hamsters, happy puppies, a band aid, and favors in the back seat of a car. Team Craig won for the bribes. For dancing she loved the stoic Mel, and the impression of Carey Grant and Elvis that Bill gave her.

At the conclusion of some social dances, the staff came up to perform. Holly & Robyn payed a duet, followed by a Santa Mambo & Rudolph swing. Our own Jr. singer Sabrina Mc Farland came to the microphone to sing silent night sweetly. Then up from the floor arose Robyn to perform her wintery waltz with William. The show closed with Criag and Holly dancing their Tango.

With the battle won, dinner was served. And oh what a meal. Pat and Pam wowed the crowd with their succulent pork, sautéed vegetables,and cranberry applesauce.  Everyone dined in delight. When done, the dancing began. Dancers changed partners and partied into the night.

Passing of Pumpkin Poles

Tea party pole
Tea party pole

With winter winking at me, I mourn the passing of this year’s pumpkin poles. Me and my family had the time of our life working on the Tim Burton tea party from Alice. My young artists spent countless hours in my garage painting faces on the Hatter, Hair and Cheshire Cat. Then I had the privilege of working with Grandpa’s Attic, In-Tea, and the Tayvern to put it all together.  All their hard work paid off with a first place for best pumpkin pole.  Thank you to everyone, and happy holidays.
