Valentine Dance and Sponsors

We had a very enjoyable Valentine Dance with good food, enjoyable music, and great company. The website has been updated with 43 ads from those who sponsored a table at the dance with their $25 donation to the UIS Scholarship Fund.  Thanks to all who attended and those that donated gift baskets and other items to make the dance a success!
