It was date night for dozens of young New Milford girls Saturday as New Milford Girl Scout troops 40225 and 40220 co-hosted their Sweetheart Dance.

Girls and the favorite man in their lives -- be he a father, grandfather, uncle or brother -- enjoyed the annual event at New Milford High School.

The evening featured music, dancing, refreshments, drawings to win theme baskets and keepsake photographs.

The highlight of the dance was the introduction of the royal court of king and queen Warren and Grace Hengel and prince and princess Steve and Grace Mackessy.
