St. Francis de Sales HS hosts Madre-Hijo Baile


Toledo: The St. Francis de Sales HS Mother –Son Dance, Black Ops Event, was held in the school gym January 29, 2012. The theme and decorations were chosen in tribute to our armed forces. Male and female marines greeted the moms and sons as they arrived. Military colors of tan, green and white were used along with model tanks and soldiers on the tables. Many couples were dressed in army fatigues from head to toe.


The delicious buffet chicken dinner with all the trimmings was catered by Darcy and Patty Irons. Following dinner, over 500 sons and mothers, or other special female guest for the night, jammed onto the dance floor to the music provided by MC Sounds for every kind of dance from the electric slide, hip-hop, and line dancing, to the bump and disco, and more, including slow dances.


Each year seniors sing a special song tribute to their moms. This year the boys rewrote the words to “My Girl” as “My Mom” followed by a slow dance. The juniors, sophomores, and freshmen also danced with their moms during specially designated songs.


A huge surprise this year included the senior moms performing a flash mob dance led and choreographed by senior mom Melissa Lohr, mother of Todd Smith, to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”


Every couple left the dance with a photo of themselves taken by Paul Kenney Studios as a remembrance of the special evening.


Co- chairs Dianna Johnson, Chelle Pelz, Laurie Dombi, Kim Wesley were assisted by a large committee of moms including Kris Blochowski, Anna Pennetta, Linda Coutcher, Suzette Peterson, Stephanie Delo, Sue Richardson, Brenda Dymarkowski,

Colleen Skie, Leslee Jagodzinksi, Lisa Thebes, Lisa Kennedy, Moli Villolovos,

Marianne Kirian, Dawn Wagner,Theresa Kulka, LaShawn Wright, Melissa Lohr,

Laurie Yeager, Shery Milz, Jessica Zajac, and Darla Pawlaczyk.
