Love is in the air this month, and there’s no stronger love than family love.

The weather in Texas may change radically from day to day, but our love for our family and community stays constant. We were honored to celebrate love with you at the 2022 Sweetheart Dance last Saturday, February 12. This event was such a hit that we needed two sessions to celebrate. Both sessions were completely sold out!

Southlake families embraced the theme and brought their sweethearts to Legends Hall at The Marq Southlake for a Valentine’s Day family night to Remember! We pulled out all the stops to make this a fantastic night for the whole family. Participants made life-long memories with a photo booth, Valentine’s-themed crafting, cookie decoration, a candy bar, snacks, and dancing!

The night was a huge success thanks to our committed staff, hard-working volunteers, and incredible sponsors. Love was in the air and a great time was had by all.

Thank you so much to everyone that joined us. We can’t wait to see you at our next world-class family program! Happy Valentine’s Day!

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but denim is a love that never fades!

Valentine’s Day arrived early in Southlake as families celebrated love and friendship at the annual Sweetheart Dance on Saturday, February 13 at Legends Hall at The Marq Southlake. Crafts, cookie decorating, and dancing ensured that a dazzling time was had by all as Southlake’s finest arrived decked out in denim and diamonds!

While the beloved annual event looked a little different this year, Southlake Community Services employees were determined to put on a fun and safe celebration.

Masks were worn, tables were reserved for individual households, and guests rotated between fun craft activities and dancing to ensure safe social distancing. Two identical dance sessions were held during the night to allow more families to celebrate love responsibly.

“The Sweetheart Dance went very well this year!” said Programs Coordinator, Gretchen Morgan. “We had some very positive reviews from our attendees this year including loving our creative layout and appreciating that food was brought to them. While we were concerned about the weather, we had a large turnout, and it was rewarding to see the event come to fruition. I want to give special thanks to our sponsors: Chick-fil-A, Ethan Allen, and CommunityMed Family Urgent Care! I am also proud of the team that made this event possible. From setting up the decorations, taking guests to their tables, to managing volunteers and getting the party started on the dancefloor, this event would not have been possible without the hard work and support of our incredible staff and volunteers.”

Safe and memorable family programming like the Sweetheart Dance is just one example of how the Southlake Community Services department enriches the quality of life for Southlake residents. Delivering remarkable experiences to our residents is simply the Southlake Way!
