One of Saratoga’s favorite musical sons, Sam Platts and his band, The Kootenai Three, are scheduled to play for another in the series of the Valley Service Organization’s (VSO) popular family dance parties on New Year’s Eve.
The event will be held at the Platte Valley Community Center from 7 to 10 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 31.
VSO members will again provide their “fantastic heavy hors d’oeuvres” for the party, according to Kate Sherrod, VSO president. There will also be a cash bar which will serve soft drinks for the youngsters as well as adult beverages. The great hall at the community center is all decked for the holiday season, and there will be New Year’s Eve party favors and hats.
There will be a modest admission charged for the event with special family rates, and children under 12 will be admitted free, Sherrod said.
“We want to stress that this is a family oriented event for party-goers of all ages,” she said. The event ends early enough for those so inclined to continue their celebrations downtown, at church celebrations or private parties, she said.
