Tooele City to host Family Valentine’s Dance 

Tooele City will host their annual Family Valentine’s Dance in February as a way for families to spend more time together.

The dance will be held at the Dow James Building located at 438 W. 400 North in Tooele City from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The dance is free to families and community members, and no registration is required in advance.

Because the dance is a family activity, Tooele staff are asking for all youth to be accompanied by an adult.

“Tooele City Family Recreation has been offering free or low-cost activities to the families of our community for over 20 years,” said Holly Tippetts, secretary for the Tooele City Arts Council. “Tooele City Family Recreation offers a new family activity each month. The goal for these activities is to encourage families to spend more time together while having fun! Our staff works hard each month planning new ideas and finding ways to get families involved and out in the community. The Family Valentine’s Dance has been a favorite of the community and staff members for many years. There are lots of families that have made this a family Valentine tradition.  

This year, Tooele City’s Family Recreation will be working with the Tooele City Library and Tooele City Communities that Care to offer new activities at the dance.

“Communities that care will be handing out Love your Neighbor Heart Attack Kits,” Tippetts said. “These kits will be for families to take home, while supplies last, and will include supplies for families to ‘Heart Attack’ two of their neighbors for Valentine’s Day.”

The library will be providing supplies needed for families to create Valentine’s Day cards that will be given to local elderly facilities and local heroes, according to Tippetts.

Along with the Heart Attack kits and cards, free family photos will be offered at the dance.

“We are excited to have My Life Images professional photography with us again to take the photos,” Tippetts said. “They do a fantastic job.”

Local DJ, Ron Baum will provide music at the event.

“The Valentine’s Dance is a great activity for all families and we hope people will save the date and plan on coming out,” Tippetts said.
