Attention Blue Devil Nation: the Bellwood-Antis Leo Club and Yearbook staff has officially scheduled a winter dance for December 3, 2016. The dance will be called, “Winter Lights.”

To be held at the high school gymnasium,

The dance is semi-formal, so no jeans and no sneakers.

However, girls need not purchase gowns, and boys do not have to wear neck ties.

The cost for admission is $8.00.

Manning Photography will be there with a photo booth to take pictures. Dee-jaying the event will be Kermit Foor.

Students from other schools may attend; however, they will need a student pass.

Yearbook editor Phoebe Potter said the idea began last year on a trip to Josten’s.

“On last year’s yearbook Jostens’s trip we talked about how B-A doesn’t have a homecoming dance, and we wanted to have a dance to include all high school students and provide a dress up experience for everyone,” said Potter.

During the week of October 3 through October 7, ballots were passed out the B-A student body. On the ballot, the students had to choose what kind of dance they wanted, when they wanted it, and how much they were willing to pay for it.

“The dance is a great opportunity for the entire student body, not just juniors and seniors, to get together for a fun evening,” said Leo Club member Sidney Patterson.
