A Valentine’s dance is scheduled this Saturday at the CVIC Hall, 1604 Esmeralda Ave., in Minden.

The Kiwanis Club of Carson Valley and Rosebud’s Dance Band host the event in a joint fundraising effort. The Kiwanis will donate their portion of the proceeds to provide swim lessons for children in our community, and Rosebud’s Dance Band’s proceeds will benefit Symphony Orchestra fire victims in Paradise, Calif.

Admission is $10 per person at the door and free for those age 10 and younger. The event starts at 7 p.m. with music to follow at 7:30. Attendees can enjoy complimentary snacks and desserts along with a no-host bar. There will also be a raffle featuring a number of themed baskets (movie, jewelry, wine, etc.).

The mission of the Kiwanis Club of Carson Valley is “Service to the Community While Enjoying Fun and Fellowship.” Rosebud’s Dance Band formed several years ago as an affiliate of the Carson Valley Pops Orchestra. They play a variety of jazz, swing, and dance standards from the Big Band-era as well as some modern numbers.

“This will be a fun evening whether you like to dance or not,” said Sally Grant, president of the Kiwanis Club of Carson Valley. “(It will be) a nice social event where you can sit and talk with your friends and enjoy the music.”
