Egg Harbor City, NJ Testimonial

February 2001

Hi Jim, 

Last year I contacted you regarding information for the Father/Daughter Dance that I had read about in Focus on the Family magazine. I am happy to report that St. Nicholas School, in Egg Harbor City, New Jersey sponsored its first Father/Daughter Valentine Dance on February 3, 2001. It was held at the Knights of Columbus Hall and we had approximately 100 "guests." (This is a very good number since our school only has 172 students!!!) It was an absolutely enchanting evening! 

It was so easy to prepare the evening with the book that you sent me and the help of some very good workers! I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all that you are doing for the father/daughter relationship, which can be so fragile in today's society. 

Earlier in the school year, a dad with three daughters in our school died of cancer. I struggled with whether to proceed with the dance since he was such an integral part of St. Nicholas. I really believe, however, that this program was ordained by God...therefore, I went with it. The three young girls (Kindergarten, 3rd, and 5th grades) were escorted by a very close cousin....and the entire "assembly" was very much aware of them throughout the evening! 

Thank you, again, providing me with the materials and for having the vision! 

God's richest blessings on you and your family, 

Joan D.
