Record-breaking temperatures added to the excitement of the Valentine's dance at St. Patrick's Church McCarthy Hall Feb. 10, sponsored by Recreational Activities for the Developmentally Disabled (RADD).

Members of the RADD Dance Club were encouraged to wear red or pink in celebration of the holiday. Energetic favorites like "YMCA" and "The Chicken Dance" lured a large crowd to the dance floor. The DJ in charge was Roger Higgenbottom, from Higgy Baby Productions, who has over 15 years of experience bringing individuals to the dance floor. He kept members motivated and enjoys watching them smile.

RADD programs were developed to provide a spectrum of accessible recreational and social activities for residents of Racine County with developmental disabilities, while providing respite opportunities for their families.

Located at 300 Dodge St., RADD programs include dance club, bowling club, adult recreation and sunshine club. RADD also offers an eight week summer camp program, Camp Kinder. For more information, call 633-0291 or email at info@radd-cpa.org.

The next Dance Club dance will be held on March 10, with a Kickin' Country theme (wear your cowboy boots!)

The Bowling Club meets at Paradise West Bowling Lanes, 6501 Washington Ave. The next outing will be Feb. 28, from noon to 2 p.m.
