The theme for the ninth annual Me and My Prince Ball is masquerade.
The formal/semi-formal dance is hosted by Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington Service Unit 22 and will be held at the Hermiston Conference Center on May 4 from 6-9 p.m. It is open to girls of all ages in the community and their fathers/father figures.
Guests are welcome to bring their own masks. There will be a few masks available at the event for picture opportunities, including a photo booth, which is something new this year.
“This is a special event for girls – young and young at heart – to make special memories with the men who have been their male role models,” said Michelle Kane, a dance organizer. “It’s also an opportunity for the men to show the girls the way they should be treated; like the special ladies that they are.”
Admission is $15 per person and are available at 60 Minute Photo in Hermiston and the Hermiston Conference Center. Cash and checks only are accepted. Admission includes a 5×7 portrait for each girl and her prince taken by 60 Minute Photo, refreshments by the Serenity Sisters and music by deejay Marvin Hamilton. Those who purchase their tickets by April 30 are guaranteed to receive a corsage and boutonniere at the dance.
The event usually sells out, so it is recommended that guests buy their tickets early.
“We recommend that the dads and girls make it a full-fledged date night,” said Kane. “Go out to dinner first, because what we serve at the dance is meant to be a snack.”
