Family Costume Ball Celebrates Four Years at Columbia Public Library
COLUMBIA - Whether it's the fiddle, guitar or dance caller, the family costume ball brings people together. The Daniel Boone Regional Library celebrates four years of the "ball" Thursday night. Children and their parents came dressed in their Halloween best to dance in lines and circles.
Library public relations manager Mitzi St. John said she enjoys "seeing the kids getting involved, interacting with one another, having a good time together. And if we can tie that in to a learning experience, even better."
Jim Thaxter taught the dances while fiddler Tom Verdot and guitarist Thom Howard played a small variety of songs.
"It's a family event. And they can come and just have fun, meet new people they haven't met before and hopefully make new friends," said St. John.
