Valentine’s Day is coming up and Cow Camp Cowboy Church has the perfect, safe way for teens and young people to celebrate it.
The church is hosting a free spaghetti dinner/sweetheart dance for teens on Friday, Feb. 15, from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
“I came up with the idea because there is just so little for teens to do in this town except go to dinner and go to a movie,” Jennifer Robicheaux said. “There’s actually very little for families to do as a whole in this town.”
The church has had dances for members in the past, but this is the first time for reaching out to the community for such an event, Robicheaux said. The music will be family friendly, being clean country, rock or Christian oriented, so parents should have no qualms about what their kids are listening to.
Any child under 12 is asked to be accompanied by an adult.
Robicheaux said that it would be the perfect opportunity for another dance that has gone in the history books: the father-daughter dance.
“We’re inviting dads and their daughters who might not yet be old enough to date to come and have some fun as well,” Robicheaux said. “Adults are welcome to stay if they wish.”
For those people dropping off their minors to go have some fun of their own, the church is requiring a picture be taken of the person who dropped them off and the minor to keep everyone safe, Robicheaux said.
The church is located at 401 I-20 West on the eastbound service road between WHS & Lone Star Guns. Anyone wanting more information can contact Robicheaux at (817) 594-1447 or (817) 629-9764.
