Will you be my valentine for the night?

February 13, 2008

Albany--  Some Albany youngsters spent some quality time with their Valentine's Wednesday evening. Their dates were a little older though.

The fun was evident inside Hamilton Hall on South Westover at about 7 o'clock Wednesday night. Children from the Whitney Head Start Program put on their best dresses and suits for a special Valentine's dance with their mothers and fathers.

Organizers thought it would be a good chance for families to spend some fun, quality time together.

"Usually it's for the adults and the teenagers to celebrate Valentine's Day but tonight we're doing it for the kids and the parents," said Shantavius Stokes with Whitney Head Start.

"Hamilton Hall is basically set up for the youth of our city. We like to focus our attention on them because it's not enough emphasis on the positive things they do," said Tangy Wright.

Hamilton Hall opened last May in memory of Catherine Hamilton. They hope to continue to host positive events for children and families.
