Valentine's Day Banquet

Love is in the air! Okay, maybe not, but the delicious aroma of chocolate chip cookies was in the air at Fortress YDC’s Valentine’s Day Banquet on February 6th, and that’s pretty darn close to love! Parents and kids were invited to spend the evening celebrating the love of family, food and fun by enjoying a yummy dinner of homemade spaghetti, salad, and chocolate chip cookies (of course!), all lovingly prepared and served by Cupid’s favorite helpers, the volunteers from the Fort Worth Junior League. And what would a Valentine’s Day celebration be if dinner wasn’t followed by dancing? While some of the kiddos were a little shy at first, a favorite song and alittle encouragement (I’m looking at you, Gabriel’s PawPaw!) were all it took to get the party started for most. The evening was capped off by a solo performance to Bruno Mars’s instant hit, Uptown Funk, by Fortress’s own superstar-in-training, Jeremiah. He even did the worm, people! We hope you had as much fun as we did and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone next month!
