An estimated 200 young men and young women, ages 14 — 18, from around the county attended a Tri-Stake Youth Dance on Friday, Dec. 27, at the Preston North Stake Center. Lucas Mumford, a counselor in the Preston North Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, dressed himself up like Santa Claus, and played a great variety of music for the youth, including some oldies that seemed even older than Santa himself. A couple of young women assisted in the choice of music played. Every 45 minutes there was a break from dancing, and a number of fun games were played: Pin The Tail on Pokemon, cup pong, cup stacking, spike ball, and turtle racing. There was plenty of prizes given out throughout the evening to participants. The refreshments were the best! French fries were delivered fresh from Big J’s, were served with ice cream sundaes.
It was a great fun evening, the youth have reported.
“I was quite pleased with the attendance, and more so with the fun and joy that I’ve seen the youth having,” reported Ryan Buttars, Preston North Stake Young Men’s President. “A big thanks to the Young Men and Young Women of Preston North Stake Youth Council who planned, decorated, and carried out a very successful and fun filled tri-stake youth dance. A thanks also goes to the chaperones from all three stakes that assisted throughout the evening.”
