Ricky Cerveny, Beast, Tabitha Reeder, Belle, and Sarah Blankenship help Lucy Bolger make a bracelet.

Belle and the Beast and a few others in tiaras and long skirts swished through the auxiliary gym on October 7.  They were part of the newly introduced Prince and Princess party at the community show.

Patricia Beachy volunteers and advises the community show along with her FFA ambassadors every year. This year, Co-President Cindy Rhoderick decided to spice up the normally “dullest” night of the week. 

“This event was really just a way to bring more attention to the Community Show on a night that wasn’t usually busy. I thought it would be fun to have the FFA representatives host a tea party for children while dressed as famous cartoon characters,” said Rhoderick. 

Some of the activities included in this event were a tea party, where the kids could decorate cookies; a bracelet making station with characters such as Belle and the Beast; “SuperHero” mask making station; and, finally, the children met Jessie and Woody from the Pixar movie, Toy Story

Sarah Curley ran the face painting station and dressed in a princess-like outfit to fit the theme.

Curley said, “I am the secretary for FFA so I am involved in the princess and prince party because of my responsibility in running the community show.”

“I’m most excited to see all the excited children’s faces as they run around to the different stations and see their favorite characters,” said Curley. 

Lucy Bolger, a first grader, admitted that her excitement for the party centered around “decorating cookies because I got to put pink icing, marshmallows, and sprinkles on mine.”
