Approximately 200 turned out to dance in the streets of Eagle Point

{gallery}08_16_11/dance{/gallery}     From toddlers to grandparents and even some great-grandparents, families turned out for Eagle Point’s Dancing in the Street Saturday. The event began in the afternoon with a variety of artists doing everything from cartooning to rattle can art. We were told most of the art sold and artists were very happy with the event.

The BBQ would have fed more, but they ran out of food. Cam and his crew from The Butcher Shop served well over 200 and gave $750 to Boy Scout Troop 48 as a result. Troop members not only were there to set up, they were there to help tear down and clean up Saturday night after the event.

The line dancing and music kept people hopping until about 9:30 p.m.

Kudos go to many. This was one of Eagle Point’s Centennial events. No one knew whether it would be a success or a failure. Obviously, it was a success and one that may well become an annual event.

It was an example of the community working together. The concept began with the Eagle Point Economic Development Committee wanting to put on something fun for families and those of all ages. Kathy Sell. Spencer Davenport, Boy Scout Troop 48, The Lucas family, Butte Creek Mill, The Butcher Shop, Hillcrest Orchard, Jim Lane and the Renegades played music and line dance teacher Tanya Dehart were among the many who did an outstanding job,assisted by the City of Eagle Point staff and police department.
