It was a special evening strictly for girls and their dates.

Dads, grandfathers and uncles were among those who were treated to a night out Feb. 6 at New Milford High School for Girl Scouts Troop 40300's and 40302's traditional Sweetheart Dance.

Taking a turn or three on the dance floor was a high priority, of course.

Yet there were plenty of other pre-Valentine's Day-themed activities to entertain the guys and their girls -- a silent auction, keepsake photographs and refreshments were high on the list.
