Fathers, daughters and Chick-fil-A

The Covenant Father-Daughter Dance was a picnic for Aley Martin with dad Tony Nabors.

There was something a little different Saturday when Covenant Academy held its Father-Daughter Dance at Bridgestone Learning Center.

There was Chick-fil-A.

And it was delicious.

“Who doesn’t love Chick-fil-A?” said organizer Wendy Kell when asked about the meal. “With the way prices of banquet meals are going, it was something we could do to keep ticket prices low and still have something that was a hit.”

Kell said they arranged the large order from Chick-fil-A of Tullahoma and had to drive to pick it up. There were also vegetable trays to round out the meal.

The food was just a small portion of the fun.

“There were a lot of girls having a great time with their daddies,” said Kell.

There were 160 tickets sold. The night featured music and a dance floor with DJ Jason Gross rockin’ the house.

When asked if he had plans to hit the dance floor, Tony Nabors said, “I get out there to stand. I don’t really dance.” 

The Father-Daughter Dance has become a cherished tradition for some.

“I think I was about 3 years old,” said Lily Kell when asked when she first started attending these dances. Now she’s a 20-year-old college student.

Said her dad, Jude Kell, “I really love our time together and we’ll keep coming as long as she want to.”

The event is not exclusive to fathers and daughters. Scott Moore came with his granddaughter, Kinsley Moore.
