Polka Dots Gift , Monogramming, Parties is having a Father Daughter Dance? Give me a break! For seven years the Arts Council has done this successfully, but undoubtedly they want to compete with this charity as part of their business. It's no coincidence that she is having her event on the same day at the same exact time! And yes, I do understand that "a portion" of the proceeds will be given to charity, but what portion would that be? 1/10th of 1%? I hope that no one attends this event (Polka Dots) to show their dissatisfaction with her attempt to commercialize this growing tradition! I know my granddaughter won't be attending, and we will not be conducting business there any more. My 2 cents.
OKAY

Last year I went to buy my tickets for the dance they told me it was sold out. I then watched another man I know who is well known in town go buy two tickets. I talked with him and he told me that he just went and bought his, so I go back and asked how it got tickets. She said that he had called in advance to get his. I told her that my wife called and was told that they could not hold tickets. She then shut the door and locked it. I will be going to polka dots

O
This is true

I have heard of this happening to others also. All depends on your location on the social totem pole. Perhaps Polka Dots offering an alternative is a solution rather than a problem. All girls who want to attend a father-daughter dance should be included. Maybe this year that is a very real possibility.

do you really think the Arts Council has the patent on a father-daughter Valentine dance? They have these dances all over the U.S. and they are hosted by a variety of businesses. Being the businesswoman that she is, I am sure Mrs. Whittaker has explored the need for more than a few "select" to participate in this event; therefore, we now have two to choose from. If she makes money from the event, very good. Business is business. You obviously have not been turned down and felt the pain of telling your daughter she can't go to the Valentine dance all her friends are going to because they "don't hold tickets" and/or "they are sold out".

good luck, polka dots, much success.

Why does it appear that all the negative comments are coming from one person that keeps changing their name.

I really think you ARE Mrs. Whittaker trying to cover the crap being thrown. It may be covered but still stinks

nope, I am not Mrs. Whittaker. I just see the opportunity she has taken as providing an opportunity for others to participate and have fun and as a business decision. I don't have any personal interest vested in it at all. But I do know one child who will get to attend a dance this year as she didn't last year.

You are probably one of those who would prefer our government to make this decision--can we have more than one Valentine dance in Bainbridge? Get a life.

Bainbridge has been called "PATON PLACE" for a long time.Years ago i thought that when that certain group grew up or died off that their children might make it different, but its true "The crap dont fall very far from the BULL S ass.

why are you so NARROW-MINDED that you don't think some one else besides "Mrs. Whittaker" can appreicate having a choice on where to attend a father-daughter Valentine dance?

You are the typical, predictable Bainbridge bred individual - you think you are "somebody". You are only a big fish in a very small pond. Open the flood gates and then see where you measure up.

And we will have a wonderful time. I will be back after the dance to share the details with you. Have a good time, ya hear?

So I am reading these comments and I ask myself, why is this even a discussion? Who cares how many Father/Daughter dances there are in Bainbridge??? Take your child to the dance you choose and have fun! That should be the end of it! Get out of Bainbridge for a bit and see how other towns hold Father/Daughter dances, many have more than one and even two dances held at different places. Bainbridge is growing and so should our businesses. This is a good thing for our community, why try and make it into a bigger deal than it really is? And think about the little girl that will be all dressed up on the night of the dance. Do you think she cares what dance she attends? Probably not, as long as she feels like a princess on her dates arm I'm pretty sure she will be not be as concerned about topic as the grandmother is!
