Fall Ball at Folsom Sports Complex – Folsom, CA
Date: October 22, 2011
Location: Folsom Sports Complex
Twice a year, the Folsom Parks and Recreation department hosts a dance at the Folsom Sports Complex for junior high school aged students. Susanne Linnane, recreation supervisor, said the dance is an extension of the afterschool program, called The Cave, where students in the area can choose to go after the academic day is over.
Linnane said that this year’s Fall Ball, in its fourth year, was held on October 22nd and hosted more than 400 students. Fundraising and donations helped pay for staff and supplies and were also used to provide bounce houses with slides and obstacle courses, a large screen television on which the students played video games, and provided for refreshments.
Though parents were not allowed to attend on this parent-free evening, they rested easy knowing that their teens were safe with more than a dozen staff members as well as a volunteer group of local high school student council members who helped supervise the group.
