The Bass Lake Community Valentine’s Day Dance has once again been scheduled for Valentine’s Day this Saturday.
The dance will begin at 7 p.m. and will be held at the Bass Lake Community Valentine’s Day Dance Hall, aka the Bass Lake University concourse. There is no set end time for the dance.
While holding a Valentine’s Day dance on Feb. 14 may seem like the natural thing to do, actually getting the event to happen has not always been so easy.
Clever Beacon readers will recall the debacle of last year’s dance, when keys to the town hall were misplaced preventing access to the dance location.
Dance committee chairperson Yvonne T’Notherchance said there is no chance of something like that happening again.
“There is no chance of something like that happening again,” T’Notherchance said. “The BLU concourse is always unlocked. No. We’re on for sure. Unless some idiot scheduled a basketball game at the same time or something.”
Food and beverages will be available from the concourse vending machines and Clem Brickston’s Mobile Bar. Music for the dance will be provided by Tug at Your Heartstrings Productions, T’Notherchance said.
Tug at Your Heartstrings Productions is owned and operated by Gwen “Tug” McNabb, former chief of the Bass Lake Authority Police. McNabb started the deejay company following his demotion last year.
“I had some extra time on my hands,” McNabb said. “This new creative outlet has helped me to heal and move beyond my past.“
McNabb’s playlist features songs from a variety of police-themed television shows, including the Law and Order franchise, Dragnet, Miami Vice, Barney Miller, and The Andy Griffith Show.
“It should be really, really interesting,” T’Notherchance said. “Bring your dance shoes and handcuffs. It’s going to be a fun night!”
