2016 Halloween Dance Raises Money for Scholarships

This year’s Halloween Dance was held on October 29th at Moretz Mills in downtown Hickory. As usual, a great time was enjoyed by Rotarians and guests alike. Entertainment was provided by the legendary Band of Oz and by the costumes of all those who came in disguise. The proceeds, which are expected to exceed $10,000 will again go to fund scholarships for deserving local young people to attend Catawba Valley Community College. A big thanks to all those who helped to make the event such a success.img_0828
